A FEW THINGS TO TAKE NOTE OF : PLEASE DO SOME STRETCHING OR YOGA BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR SESSION. We will be doing a lot of arching of your back if we are able too! ALSO, please do not wear tight clothing the day of. We don’t want to have any red marks or indents in your skin. PLEASE COME IN WITH A WASHED FACE AND CLEAN DRY HAIR FOR HAIR + MAKE-UP. PLEASE DRINK PLENTY OF WATER + EAT BEFORE YOU COME! If you do not want to be bloated, eat some plain + filling foods that are good to your body. I do usually have water in my studio and I have a keurig!
SO LET’S DO THIS!
When you get to 6 West Broadway, Derry NH 03038 you will notice that it is a HUGE brick building. On the front of the building there is a GIANT GOLD 6 and the only storefront that faces the street is Wayne’s World Tattoo. The building is nestled in between TWO parking lots, Merchant’s Row Parking and Abbott Court Parking. Please park in Abbot Court Parking, there has been a lot of cars in Merchant’s Row and it is only 2 hour parking. You will be in my studio for longer than that. There is street parking available on West Broadway (route 102) if that is what you are more comfortable with. When you park at Abbot Court Parking, there is a set of stairs on the left side of the parking lot. Please take those stairs to the rail trail/merchant’s row parking. Then, just walk over to the red sidewalk, where Ultimate Attraction hair salon is, walk a tid bit further to the black door with the “Kendra-anne Michelle Photography” sign is and enter that door and head up the stairs to the second floor. Please let me know when you reach this point so I can let you in, as the door is almost always locked. IF it isn’t locked please feel free to come into the hallway and walk down the left side of the hallway until you reach room 24. THAT’S MEEEE! <3
NOW, that you are officially here, it is HAIR AND MAKE-UP TIME! 😀 Super easy, take a seat, relax, and let one of the AMAZING hair and make-up artists that I work with do their magic. <3
After hair and make-up, it is time to change and get to shooting! I always start with the outfit that COVERS you most. It is an easy transition to get used to being in front of the camera. Then we will do the bed poses and a few standing against the wall and then change again, and utilize the small couch that I have. The actually shooting time varies anywhere between 1-2 hours long.
YAY YOU BADASS! YOU FINISHED YOUR SESSION!! <3 <3 <3 Here is the time when we would chat about beforehand. You can either run across the street and grab a coffee and relax at the Grind Rail Trail Cafe, or grab a bite to eat somewhere in town and then come back about an hour later and we will do your viewing/ordering session! OR you can be done with me for the day and make an appointment for the following week (or withing the next couple following weeks) to do your reveal/ordering session. During your viewing/ordering session you will see your FINAL IMAGES AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT YOUR ALBUM SPREADS WILL LOOK LIKE (I always draft up what an 8×8 album would look like)! ahhhhh! And you will make your final decisions on what products you would like! If you know beforehand what you would like to order you can ALWAYS do a pre-payment plan and pay off your products so you can get them asap. If you are choosing to order at your viewing/ordering session payment is due upfront or you can do a post-payment plan. With post-payment plans, you will NOT receive your products until after you balance is paid in FULL. Product orders are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Okay so this is the MOST TALKED ABOUT PORTION OF YOUR SESSION! I do NOT have a client closet, simply because I want you to feel POWERFUL AS FUUUUUCK in your outfit choices. I want you to be able to try them an on feel SEXY AS HELL. I ALWAYS recommend to bring a matching bra + panty set as a just in case. Teddies are super flattering on all body types, or if you want you can do a pair of high waisted undies with a crop top or slick bra, or you can do any lingerie you feel comfy in, a babydoll, a strapy two piece, a garter + belt, or honestly you can do LITERALLY ANYTHING! Here are some AWESOME AS FUUUUCK LINGERIE SITES TO CHECK OUT :
If you are worried at all about posing, DO NOT FRET, DARLING! Posing is a much easier game than you think, I promise! Pluuuuus, I will show you all of the poses myself before you try them. The ONE thing to remember is your facial expressions! Also, do not worry, I gotchyouuu. Just remember to stay relaxed, and as the session moves on, it gets even easier! You can ALWAYS use pinterest if there is a certain pose you would like to get. ALSO, you can bring what ever the fuck you want to your session to use as a prop, or your s/o’s sports jersey or coat or white button up, literally ANYTHING! (well, just nothing illegal and no guns)
Can you hide my *insert body part*? While I do possess the skills that do that, I am curious as to why you would want to hide it? Every Client comes to my with body insecurities, but part of my mission as a boudoir photographer is to help humans see the full spectrum of their beauty! This doesn’t mean we are going to do some close up photos of X body part or put a spotlight on it, but it also does not not mean we are going to hide X body part. You see, my goal is to give you an experience that will have you FEELING sexy, empowered, confident, pOwerful, UNSTOPPABLE! AT THE END OF YOUR SESSION AND WHEN YOU SEE YOUR PHOTOS, I WANT YOU TO CORRELATE THAT YOU FELT SEXY, BAD ASS, POWERFUL AS FUCK, not because of or without X body part, but rather WITH THIS BODY AS IT IS. You did something scary and amazing and you did it WITH THE BODY YOU HAVE! <3
