Preparing for your boudoir shoot is key! And nothing will make you feel more comfortable for your shoot then to have everything ready to go and prepped the night before.
Here are some tips and tricks for you!
1) Hair and Makeup prep
Come with a clean face, free of makeup, but make sure to put on a light moisturizer the morning of your shoot. Ask for your hair, everyone's hair is different, if you can get away with showering every couple days, then the night before your shoot is fine, but be sure to blow dry your hair upside down before going to bed, but if you are the type of woman he needs to shower her hair everyday, then the morning of is totally fine, but again, blow dry your hair upside before coming for your shoot.
If you have something specific in mind for hair or makeup, having photos to relay what you want tends to work best, otherwise if your not too sure what you want, then our fabulous makeup girls will help you take care of it!
2) Body Prep
The more moisturized your skin is, the better it will look in photos. Drink water, and moisturize with your favourite lotion or coconut oil, whatever medium you like to use. If your skin isn't too sensitive and you have exfoliated before, try a body scrub about 5 days before your shoot, and then moisturize the last few days before your shoot.
Spray tans can be nice, but if you go somewhere inexperienced you may come out of it orange and not with the kind of glow you were hoping for. We suggest leaving your skin as is! But if you really want a tan to your skin, give us a call at the studio and we can give your tips and suggestions.
Longer nails definitely make your hands look better for photos, but if you don't normally get your nails done, or don't have it in the budget, then don't stress, just make sure your nails are clean, and trimmed to all the same length. If you have a neutral nail polish, put a coat of that on your nails before you get here.
