Tips to Prepare for Your Boudoir Session
Choose your Clothes. Underwear and lingerie is great. We'd suggest this is a great opportunity to go out and select something glamorous - pamper yourself to some really great lingerie. (But remember to remove the labels). Try and avoid thongs, they don't always work in photographs.
If lingerie is not for you, that's fine: swimwear, a sports jersey, large sweater, tailored man's shirt, or tight shirt and shorts are all terrific options. Men really like women in men's shirts - especially if it is his!
Remember Accessories. Choose items which go with each getup. In general we suggest keeping it simple and elegant. Too much jewelry can be distracting in the pictures. Also select footwear to go with each outfit. You don't need to bring hundreds of items, but on the other hand better to have it that not.
Remember Special Items. Bring something important to your partner, maybe dog tags, sports gear, hobby equipment?
Beauty Preparations Before the Shoot. We suggest that anything you get done is complete well in advance of the shoot. So eyebrow shaping, hair cuts, manicures, waxing etc should all be done a few days before to make sure everything has settled down.
Tanning Please do not use fake tan within 2 weeks of the shoot. Any slight unevenness really shows up in photographs. Equally if you are thinking of tanning beforehand, do it well in advance and avoid tan lines. We can always apply an even tan in photoshop afterwards, but fixing uneven tanning is really difficult and may have an extra charge.
Makeup and Hair. We strongly recommend that you have your hair and make-up done at our studio. We have knowledgeable MUA's here who understand how to make you look wonderful for photography and it is one less hassle so you can be relaxed on the day.
Just Before the sitting. Drink plenty of water a day or two before to get your skin nicely hydrated and healthy. Shave or defoliate a couple of days in advance, so everything has a chance to settle down. Eat a light breakfast to avoid bloating. Please don't dress in tight clothes, bras, knickers, socks on the day, they leave red indents in the skin.
