Boudoir Session Prep Guide

To get the most out of your session, a little prep can go a long way.

THE WEEK BEFORE YOUR SESSION

AVOID the following:

• Hard partying or staying out late.

• Excessive alcohol.

• Eating unhealthy/junk food and refined sugar.

• Getting sunburned.

 

2~3 DAYS BEFORE YOUR SESSION

• Drink more water than usual to hydrate your skin. Set regularly timed alerts on your phone to help remind you.

• Get plenty of sleep to minimize dark circles under the eyes.

• Wax/shave body hair to avoid redness/razor burn on shoot day.

 

DAY BEFORE YOUR SESSION

• Make sure your fingernails and toenails are clean and manicured/pedicured (white nail polish looks great in photos; muted earth tone colors, natural polish, or French manicure also look good. Use press-on nails if needed.

• DO NOT use vibrant colors (unless specifically planned).

• DO NOT have mismatched nail and toe color.

Make sure your outfits are wrinkle-free and placed on hangers.

• Place your shoes and accessories (earrings, necklaces, purse/clutch, etc.) in an overnight bag.

• Put everything in your car or by the door the night before the shoot.

 

DAY OF YOUR SESSION

• Shower the morning of and arrive at your hair and makeup appointment with your hair clean, dry, and free of any hair products.

Account for traffic during your trip. Arrive on time.

• While driving to the shoot location, wear a pair of soft, loose sweatpants and loose shirt to avoid skin marks on your legs from tight-fitting clothes and your car’s seat. 

• If you plan to wear form-fitting clothes (bodycon, miniskirt, etc.), wear seamless underwear or thong underwear.

• If shooting outdoors, bring comfortable walking shoes/sneakers to walk around in.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call me.
