These shoots are so much fun!!! Although you may be feeling excited & nervous (especially if this is your first Boudoir experience) you are going to be blown away when you see your final images!! This will be a real teat for yourself our your sweetie!! The best results always come from good preparation. So make sure you give yourself some time ahead of the shoot, to make a list of the things that you will need to bring, book, collect, purchase or do. Below is a written list to help as well.
FYI: I will direct you through the shoot, with what to do & how to pose. All you need to do is bring your belongings, and have fun!
HAIR PREP (Hair style included in marathon events): Our stylist recommends you wash your hair the day before the shoot, this will allow your hair to hold its style better. She will bring everything else needed for beautiful sexy hair.
MAKE UP PREP (Makeup included in marathon events): Our Make up artists recommends coming with a clean face, and especially eyeliner or mascara free. Typically makeup applied for Boudoir is more contrasting, and more prominent with focus to eyes, false lashes and possible contouring foundation techniques.
WAX/SHAVE/GROOMING: Just be sure you are smooth and bare, since you will be wearing very little in some cases. The skimpier the outfit, the more grooming needed.
MANI/PEDI'S: This is another area that can really make the images look really Pro! Weather you have nice long nails and decide to paint them or have them done professionally, you will love the results. If your not sure what to do, a classic french manicure is always great. If you are going with a colour, just make sure it wont clash with your outfits. And don't forget your toes!!
OUTFITS: For the 1 hr Boudoir sessions...feel free to bring along up to 3 outfits (with coordinating shoes/accessories etc). We will try and fit in all outfits. Depending on what look you are going for, and what you feel great in.. you can bring anything from your fav ripped jeans, bras and panties, sexy corsets, fish nets/thigh highs garters, sheer camisoles, tank tops..your options are endless. We recommend packing your outfits, jewellery, and props that go together, in separate bags so we can be as efficient as possible during the shoot.
SHOES: Bring along some sexy high heels or boots that will co-ordinate with your outfits.
JEWELLERY: Bring what you feel sexy in and love, remember to coordinate it with your outfits.
PROPS: Optionally you may bring any props you want incorporated in you images, ie: candy, something of your mates (t-shirt, tie, jersey) glasses.
OPTIONAL, BUT NOT A MUST: Tanning, and teeth whitening. These two things are not necessary to stress about right before the shoot. Like mentioned in the video, dark tans can sometimes look too orange under natural light photo shoots, and both of these things can me adjusted in post editing.
Remember...this is your special shoot, open to singles or couples, and to all shapes and sizes...Confidence is the key!!!
I WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH IT ALL IF IT IS YOUR FIRST TIME...ALSO I PROVIDE MUSIC, A RELAXING AND BEAUTIFUL ATMOSPHERE AND A FEW BACK UP PROPS.
TWO WEEKS BEFORE: Book any necessary apt's for Nails .Pay special attention to any dry or callused areas of skin on your body and use lotion on them daily.
THE WEEK BEFORE: Drink plenty of water daily. Be kind to your skin, wash and moisturize. Do not do any major skin peels/exfoliations before the shoot. This is also a good time to lock the bedroom, or bathroom door and practice some of your sexy body poses & face poses.
2 DAYS BEFORE: Pack your things and have it all ready, as much as possible.
DAY/NIGHT BEFORE: This is a good time to do your nails or have them professionally done. Try and free up your schedule in order to have a relaxed night, have a nice bath and get to bed early. Remember...stay well hydrated!
DAY OF: Prepare for some pampering! Where super comfy, loose clothing to the shoot..especially underwear, even skip on the bra. Optionally you could wear undergarments that will not leave any lines/marks on your skin for the shoot. Bring all of your items. Plan to arrive just a little early, so you have time to park, and get directed to the right room etc.
Don't get uptight about all of this information...it is just here to help you make the best of your shoot, and it will allow you to feel properly prepared so you can have fun and really get into it!
