First off, thank you for choosing me to be your photographer, to capture your beauty. It means the world to me that you entrust me with this, and I cannot wait to get to know you and make this session one you'll never forget.
I want to capture you right now, in the moment, exactly as you are, with all of the unique bits and pieces. Would you like to feel sexy, sultry, gorgeous, glamorous? Boudoir photography is about celebrating you and how you look when you feel your best.
Go into the session with a really open mind and a positive attitude. Everybody's a little nervous. Trust that I will make you look the best I can make you look. You're being transformed into a supermodel for a day, so celebrate that moment.
How do you prepare?
What I look for first is light, specifically, window light. If you're home is lacking natural light, no worries, just give me a heads up and I can bring in some lighting. Next, find a couple spots in your home that bring you joy (your bed, the couch, a comfy chair, kitchen, patio, stairs, the options are endless). If you would like to find a rentable space, let me know asap!
what to wear:
You absolutely have to be comfortable in what you are wearing. We can change a couple times so pick more than one outfit 3 is a good number, even if we don't use them all. It can be fun to start in an over-sized shirt and some sexy panties and then strip down slowly. That being said, I am game for anything. If you need help deciding on your lingerie send me your ideas, actually - always send me your ideas as it helps me plan a little.
If you have Pinterest, here's a board I've created for your fashion inspiration.
Hair/makeup, You don't have to go extreme, but the natural look doesn't go well with boudoir. This isn't something you get to do often so treat yourself and spend some time on you. Hiring a make-up artist can be the confidence boost you need! This is a great time to have a glass or two of wine to help you loosen up, turn up the music and dance in your underwear singing your heart out (I may make you do this during the session as well)
Hair looks best with a little oomph, backcombing and extra hairspray will be your friend, nobody likes when their hair falls flat! Again, hairstylists can give you that added boost, how often do we treat ourselves??
We need some jams, so I will bring a spotify playlist, hit me up with your favorites that make you feel AMAZING, its always a good time.
Your home, tidy up and de-clutter- especially in the areas we might be - that will help the focus of the photos stay on you ( and not the stuff in your house) Your house doesn't need to be perfect, but if you don't want it in your photos, you may want to find a hiding spot.
Will be ready within three weeks of session date. You will receive the agreed upon number of images with an option to purchase additional.
Prints and Canvas
Are available, and encouraged. I am available for image styling in your home, as well for in home consults for print and canvas ordering to keep it as streamlined as possible.
Feel free to email or text me, snaps of your clothing ideas if you want any feedback on clothing options, etc.. I am always happy to help! And if you can't decide what to wear, I can help you decide. I love styling my clients for the camera!
I'm SO excited to capture you.
Let's make some magic together,
