Once you book your shoot, you'll receive my welcome email. In this email, I'll share with you the tips for preparing for your photoshoot. It's all optional and super easy stuff like drink more water and arrive with a clean face for makeup application. I also LOVE when my clients share images that they love! If you have time, create a Pinterest board and pin some photos that you're drawn to. After you're done, you can send me the link to your board. If you don't have time, no worries at all!
Planning Your Outfits
We recommend bringing wardrobe options that cover all aspects of your personality, from girl next door, sultry and sexy, or high fashion and glamorous! Your session is your time to explore every aspect of who you are.
Once you book, I will send a welcome packet with great tips and tricks for prepping for your shoot, including links to some of our favorite designers. In addition to these helpful resources, we also advise you to make a Pinterest board with outfit ideas that you love! From there, we can always guide you toward the best designers for outfits that are flattering to your figure and style.
If you have lots of ideas and outfits and you're having trouble narrowing them down, then we always recommend you bring a suitcase full of stuff! Oh, yes, girl, I'm not joking. We recommend you bring all the things and when you arrive, we can help you narrow them down so you are shoot-ready!
Professional Hair & Makeup
Professional hair and makeup are included with each of our boudoir experiences and parties. Once you book your session, I'll send you a fun questionnaire where you can tell me exactly the look you're going for! The day of your shoot, your stylist will be prepared to create the perfect look for you. Your stylist will also discuss makeup colors based on your final wardrobe selection from the choices you bring for me to select from.
Professional hair and makeup is such an essential part of this experience. It can make or break your portrait session, and that's why we only work with the best hair stylists and makeup artists! Not only do they know how to give you the look, but most importantly, they know how to do makeup for the particular lighting and retouching techniques I use.
Do you have a specific look in mind? In addition to your questionnaire, feel free to email us some screenshots at [email protected].
Arrive for Your Portrait Session
We will go through the outfits you brought when you arrive and help you narrow them down, if need be. In addition, we'll also help you with any wardrobe questions you might have.
When you're all settled in, we'll get you started with hair and makeup. Our pro artist will chat with you about the exact look you're wanting. If you want to leave it 100% up to the artist, that's totally fine by us—whatever suits you best. If you're worried about the potential for us to not get the look you're going for right, let me just tell you there's no need to worry.
During the hair/makeup process, our professional artist will ask you how you're liking things along the way. They'll make sure it's not too dramatic or natural, depending on the look you're going for. We can always change things along the way, and I promise, when we're done, you'll love the look!
I'll start off with the simplest post and coach you on exactly where to look, how to smile, etc. You'll never wonder, "Where should my hand be? Does my face look good? Am I doing this right?" I'll be super clear on exactly what to do, and we'll even show you photos along the way so you can be confident in knowing how amazing you look.
Expert Posing Guidance
We are experts at capturing you in the most flattering ways and light. I have photographed tons of glamour/boudoir sessions with overjoyed customers, and we know exactly how to pose you down to your fingertips! You don't need to worry about a thing. You just need to simply show up for your session.
I have the experience needed in posing to ensure that you are always posed in the most flattering ways and under the most flattering lighting. Once it's time for your shoot, I will just ask you to do simple things, such as "Bring that shoulder towards me, bring your chin forward a bit, now look up at me with your eyes, put your hand here," etc. It's super simple and super fun!
You can rest at ease knowing that I know what women want when it comes to editing. My customers love how we do this! They love it because I bring out the best in them without changing who they are. We remove those unwanted blemishes, lighten circles under eyes, balance skin tone, and add that special touch to leave the image looking like your best and most beautiful self!
Sharing Your Images
I want you to know that you have 100% control over whether or not you allow us to share your photos online. If you choose to let me share your photos so that other ladies can see how empowering and amazing this experience is, thank you! If you choose to keep your photos 100% private for yourself or your partner, that's okay too! Whatever it is, the choice is yours, and I will always respect your wishes!
