WHAT DO I BRING?
Bring a few pieces of clothing that make you feel awesome, for me personally that would not be a thong but rather a pair of cheeky panties and a just a lace-y type bra- no wires. I am not sure what this is for you but but don’t be afraid to be bold and wild in your choices either #yolo <- lol do people still say this? Bring a panty, bra combo- a unitard, a robe, booty shorts.. WHATEVER it is that makes you feel amazing. Bring it.
Perfume, NO it doesn’t matter for the images, but it def. helps to smell like a queen when you’re acting like one.
Heels. we may wear them, we may not. Better to come prepared!
**If you choose not to get your hair or makeup done- don’t forget to come prepared. Bring lipstick, foundation, hairspray etc. The essentials. Don’t take advantage of the Hair and Makeup girl for products if you don’t want to actually use their services 🤷🏻♀️
PREPARE FOR YOUR SESSION.
Spend Time Trying On and Testing Outfits
It’s no secret that our bodies change over time, we gain weight, we lose weight, we have children, we spend more time at the gym. Some things that used to look great on us just won’t anymore, and some things that we couldn’t quite fit into we will rock now. Also, clothes that have been in the closet or in the drawer for a while, depending on the material, will change with time – thanks to humidity and gravity and us not wearing them. So, if you bring an outfit for your session that you used to love but haven’t worn in a while, you might be in for a surprise.
Instead of dealing with these potential “whoops” moments, take the time to try on any and all potential outfits.
The more you have to bring the better, because options are always good, but you don’t want to make the mistake of bringing a lot of things that aren’t right for you. The day of your shoot, you want to feel confident, sexy, on top of the world. So bring those outfits. And if your closet doesn’t bring that va-va-voom you’re looking for, maybe it’s time to go shopping. You never need an excuse to go shopping, but it’s nice to have one. Your upcoming Boudoir session is definitely an excuse.
Wear Loose Fitting Comfy Clothes to the shoot
Skip the bra, skip the socks, skip the watch, and forget that belt, those tight jeans, and anything else which could leave an impression in your skin. It may seem like a small thing, but these lines can dampen the look of a great negligé. Besides, you want to relax and feel confident, and tight clothes are only going to restrict you.
Drink Plenty of Fluids
Three words: Water. Water. Water. And make sure to avoid alcohol and salt, as these will turn your lovely skin to the texture of potato chips, which just isn’t pretty.
Everybody’s different, and everybody is beautiful. Wear the clothes that you not only feel confident in, but accent your incredible body. If you’re on a thinner side and want some curves, wear brighter colors and horizontal lines, there are so many decadent varieties of bra/panty combos that you’ll want for nothing in your quest for fabulousness.
If you’re on the curvier side and want to add some balance, try super-slimming fishnet stockings.
Don’t Fake Tan.. (ever.)
No sprays, no gels, no lotions. If you want a natural sun-kissed glow, and if you’re lucky enough to live in or near L.A. head to the beach, get it the right way (but don’t forget to wear sunscreen, SPF 15 or more, and watch out for those ghastly tan lines!), or, even better, book some sessions in a professional salon that has tanning beds, and do it in the nude (no unsightly lines this way). The last thing you want is to a) look like a sexy pumpkin or b) pay more than you have to in retouching fees.
Touch Up the Basics
If you dye your hair, get your hair done the week of your Boudoir Session. Shave or wax everything, the day of if possible, and spring for a mani-pedi.You’d be amazed how these little details can make or break a photo session. These pictures are going to be around for a while, reminding you of just how awesome you look, don’t skimp the small stuff.
It’ll be fun. Promise!
