- tips + tricks -
Boudoir is all about making you feel your BEST + it can be SO much fun!
But, I know you might have a few questions. Like, "I have never done this before... What the heck to do I wear?? Is there anything I need to know before I get there?
How do I pose to look like a model??"
Let me give you some
one week before:
the night before:
It's time to get your beauty sleep! No, seriously. You have a big + exciting day coming up - you will want to be well rested. Make sure you drink plenty of water, apply some night time moisturizer, + get to bed early. Your body will thank you in the morning. Trust me.
If you feel like you have a hard time winding down + nerves are setting in, try some light yoga + breathing exercises. Sometimes, a weighted blanket or a book before bed helps to relax your mind. Stay off your phone at least 30 minutes before bed!
the day of:
Today is ALL ABOUT YOU!
Even if you're doing a Boudoir Session as a gift for a significant other - this day is YOUR DAY. You get to focus on yourself + have fun! The more confidence you bring to your session, the better the photos will be + I guarantee the more fun you will have!
It's never too early to start your self-love journey! Take the week before your session to pamper yourself. Heck - start TONIGHT!
Stick to a skin care routine that works for you. Shave, wax, exfoliate, self tan
- OR DON'T!! whatever it is that makes you feel beautiful - do that! For me, it's a long hot shower, candles + a good book in bed.
MOST IMPORTANT TIP: Drink plenty of water. Challenge yourself to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Every day.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
to your session:
WEAR LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING
Large t-shirt, zip-up jacket with nothing underneath, button down shirt, + loose sweat pants are all great options! Avoid anything that will leave marks in your skin. The idea is that you come as comfortable as possible.
DITCH THE BRA
Tight fitting clothing, like a bra, can leave impressions + lines on your skin that can be very difficult or nearly impossible to edit out of photos. Basically, it's best to just come in your pajamas. ☺
for your session:
Bring whatever makes you feel sexy! Boudoir is all about how you FEEL. No matter what you wear during your session, you want to be comfortable. It doesn't always have to be lingerie...
Some alternative options are:
- Lacy bra + panty set
- Significant other's clothing (their favorite jersey, their button down shirt, their favorite band tee, etc.)
- Oversized sweater + underwear
- Leather jacket
- Wedding veil
