Avoid these Boudoir Faux Pas During your Session
The last thing you want is to be worried about not being ready for your session! Keep these tips in mind as you're preparing so that we can have a fabulous session together!
Bad Tan Lines/Sunburn – If you have not been tanning recently, don’t tan just before your session. You can get sunburn or really bad tan lines, which are not flattering in photos. Also avoid spray tans at all cost, as they tend to photograph poorly. I don't do extra fixing for tan lines!
Getting drunk at your session – If you are nervous about your session, it’s OK to have a glass of wine to rest your nerves. That said, don’t get wasted before or during your session. This is one of the worst things you can do. Your eyes will be bloodshot and droopy and it’s just a recipe for disaster. I limit you to 1 drink and I would highly suggest not enjoying any pre-session drinking. You will regret it.
Choosing the wrong sized outfits – Choose lingerie that is just the right size for you. You don’t want loose lingerie that gives your body no shape or hides your beautiful curves. On the other hand, lingerie that is too tight can be unflattering. Try on everything you are thinking of bringing. Does it pinch? Bunch? Does it give you weird lumps? Then I'd suggest you reconsider. If you're stuck, remember I have a studio wardrobe that we can use! Just bring a nude and a black thong with you so we keep things sanitary.
Heavy Makeup – This one isn't normally an issue because we include hair and makeup in our sessions. But sometimes we might run a special that doesn't include it. In those cases, I strongly recommend getting a makeup artist for your session. You don’t want to slather the makeup on too thickly. It’s more about accentuating your natural features and making you feel – and look – stunning.
Forgetting to shave/wax – Always remember to shave or wax any exposed area (this also includes your crack ;-) ) that needs to look smooth and sexy. The ‘au naturel’ look is so ‘70s. Unless you’re going for that vibe, please remember this tip.
