Planning Your Outfits For Your Boudoir Session

During your planning process you and I have will have what we call a prep and design phone call. I will walk you through and help you pick out the outfits that is not only is right for your body but also your style and personality. We are all different and have our own unique definition of beautiful and sexy. Our goals is to choose outfits that make you feel sexy and confident. Items to consider are lingerie, bodysuits, robes, or other pieces that flatter your body type and highlight your best features. I will help you plan a variety of outfits and accessories to mix and match during the shoot.

Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, and moisturize your skin to ensure it looks its best. Avoid getting a spray tan or trying any new skincare treatments right before the shoot, as this could cause skin irritation or uneven coloring. Having a hydrating facial is a great way to pamper yourself before your session.

Hair and Makeup

Hair and makeup is part of your experience here. I have a team of professional hair and makeup artist to help you look and feel your best. We talked about makeup above and prepping your skin, but what can you do for your hair? I recommend washing and blow dry out the night before or morning of if you plan to wash before your session. Get a little trim the week before to help you cut off any dead ends. Do you have the unplanned ombre hair? If it is not intentional, I highly recommend a color touch up about 1 week before your session.

But what if my hair is curly? I love my curls but I live in Florida. That is simple. My girls are AMAZING when it comes to helping you rock those natural curls.
