So you've booked a session, now what?
Getting ready for your boudoir session with us may seem overwhelming at first. All sorts of things are probably going through your mind: what to wear, what shoes to bring, should you tan, when should you get waxed, and many other things.
Our team is skilled and knowledgeable in preparing you for your session from the initial phone call. We are here to help through every step of the way, and will go over any detail and tip we can!
When you arrive at the studio on the day of the shoot, we'll go through your wardrobe selection one last time and choose what will look best for each set we'll be using, your hair will be styled to look amazing and your makeup will be applied to complete your full look. You'll surely feel like a diva and super model when you're in the studio.
But there are some things you can do prior to arriving at your session that can help you prepare mentally and physically. Some tasks you may be able to do on your own at home, or with your girlfriends, and some you might decide to make a day of and schedule appointments with your salon or spa.
Here are some things to do:
Get a mani & pedi
It's likely that your hands and feet will show up in your images, so be sure to treat yourself to a relaxing manicure and pedicure to primp those nails. You can choose to go with a classic french manicure look or play with some color that will coordinate with colors in your boudoir wardrobe. If you're unsure on what color to use or you have a variety of wardrobe options, choose something neutral such as a pale pink or nude.
Get a massage
Tension in your muscles and body can show during your photo shoot. You may have another way of relaxing or even be a natural in front of the camera, but if you feel tense before your session and just want to let loose and relax, opt for a gentle massage. Book an appointment at the spa or ask your sweetie to participate at home.
Touch up your roots
There's nothing worse than looking at your final images and noticing that your dye job was a little overdue. Buy a box of your usual dye or root touch up, or make an appointment with your hair stylist to have everything evened out. You'll be thankful that you did. This isn't the time to go crazy and try a new color for the first time, so stick to what you've done before and avoid any accidental color mishaps leaving you with a too dark, too light, or even orange head.
Moisturize for a healthy glow
A simple and natural way to give your skin a nice healthy glow is by moisturizing. The days leading up to your photo shoot, take a little extra time after your showers or before bed to apply a nice body butter or your favorite moisturizer. If you're a tanner, whether in the sun or a tanning bed, limit your latest tanning session to about a week prior to your shoot. Your skin needs to time recuperate from the UV exposure and you'll need to make sure you're applying that moisturizer regularly.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Not only does this help in giving your skin a healthy glow in addition to moisturizing, but our bodies love water. Make sure you're getting a nice amount of water each day to help your skin stay soft and healthy. You'll arrive to your photo shoot looking fresh and revitalized.
