PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION

 

A professional makeup artist will be provided.. or you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Your hair should be free-flowing. Loose curls work best. Clip-in extensions, hairpieces, and even wigs can, also, be a great way to glam-up your hairstyle.

Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure, but avoid facials or waxing for 1-2 days before your session as they can cause redness or blotchiness.

Here are a few tips and tricks to consider -

DO invest in at least one cute pair of underwear or a bra/panty set that makes you feel super sexy and fits your body type.

DON'T use self tanner beforehand, as it often comes off too orange in photos.. and can also be damaging to our furniture.

DON’T wear anything that is too small and digs into your skin or creates the dreaded “muffin top.”

DO consider accessories from your man: ties, hats, scarves, sports paraphernalia, etc. to personalize your images.

DO consider normal clothing if you’re nervous about being too revealing, such as slouchy sweaters, tanktops, a fitted button-up shirt, a pencil skirt, or a fitted v-neck t-shirt. Many of these items can be paired with cute undergarments to make a very sexy (but less skimpy) outfit.

DO remember that sometimes no outfit can be the best outfit. Some of our favorite images were photos taken when the subject wasn’t wearing anything clothing-related, and simply covered up with a white sheet, towel, pillow, or a prop. 

DON’T feel like you have to drop a ton of money on new items for your shoot. Although it can be nice to have one really elaborate piece of lingerie, we can create stunning images with a few classic and simplistic pieces.

DO load up on accessories. Pearls, long necklaces, fishnets or sheer black hose, scarves, and most importantly- cute shoes! High heels are a must!

DON’T be afraid to bring too much. If you think it might be useful or cute, bring it along! When you arrive for your session, we will go through your items and help you to style the best options. It’s better to have too many choices than too few.

If you have any other questions about what to bring or how to prepare for your session, please let us know and we will be happy to help!

 

WHAT TO WEAR

We want you to feel completely comfortable on your shoot. With that in mind, it is truly up to you with how much or how little skin you show. We love for our shoots to show our client’s personality, so feel free to bring something special as well as props. Don't be afraid to have fun!

We usually start out shooting with a little more clothing. As you become more comfortable, we can work our way through your outfit choices. Feel free to bring lots of your favorite outfits and we’ll pick out the best for the shoot.

Bra and Panties
Most importantly, bring at least one bra and pantie set, preferably two. Start with basic black and then add colors and patterns. Bras and panties can be photographed alone or paired with any of the other clothing items or accessories you bring.  They are also helpful when setting up implied nude poses.

Lingerie
A vintage slip, teddy and/or camisole always photograph well. Bodysuits and high waist-ed sets are quite trendy right now - and extremely flattering! Corsets with thigh high stockings and heels are super sexy too. Start simple and grow more extreme from there. Think about what colors look good on you. Black looks good on everyone, but jewel tones and coral can be fun as well. A bride-to-be may consider bringing a veil, garter belt and plenty of lacy white items.

Casual Attire
Everyday clothing such as sheer tops, jeans, shorts, and pajamas can look cute and sexy if photographed properly.  A simple white tank top or cami can be super cute!  If this is a gift for your partner then bring something from his wardrobe. This can be one of his favorite ties, a button down shirt, a sports jersey, recreational gear, or his uniform. Anything that makes the images more personal and sexy to him! It also adds variety to your collection of outfits and will look great in your final product.

Accessories
You can easily modify the look of your outfit by changing your accessories and moving to a new background.  Accessories include jewelry, scarves, stilettos, boots, gloves, fishnets, stockings, garter belts, etc.
