prep guide

Should I arrive 15 mins early like I do for the Doctor?? No, please don’t. I often hold several back to back appointments during the day so I will not be able to let you in early or answer your calls or texts. But, I promise to be ready for you promptly at your scheduled appointment time!

How should I prepare? My best advice to you, is to STRETCH, hydrate, and moisturize. Boudoir Sessions are equivalent to yoga class. The more bendy you are, the easier this will be. Drinking lots of water helps make you more flexible too, and it’s going to reduce bloating and clear up your skin.

Get a zit or a bruise? Don’t worry, that’s why we use Photoshop! Moisturize your skin to keep it looking fresh and luminous.

NO SPRAY TANS OR TANNING BEDS. If you arrive with a spray tan your session is immediately CANCELLED with no refunds or reschedules. We do not mess around with this policy because even the best spray tans could stain our very expensive furniture or client wardrobe, and they simply do not photograph well. We do not advocate for tanning beds because they cause redness and blotchiness of skin, and additional retouching of your skin because of tanning beds will be charged a $35 fee per corrected image.

WHAT ABOUT GROOMING? If you need to get your hair touched up, your nails done, or have any hair removal services done, make sure you do it a few days prior to your session so everything has time to “settle” and you have a little wiggle room should things need to be fixed. I don’t recommend trying new hairstyles or colors, getting new piercings or tattoos immediately before your session.

How should I dress the morning of? Please arrive in loose fitting clothing that will not leave impressions on your skin. Avoid jeans, socks, underwire bras. Feel free to wear Pj’s, sweats, yoga pants, or leggings. Don’t feel like you need to dress up for us! Most likely everyone here will be in leggings too 🙂

When will I see my pictures?

If this is not a possibility for you, let me know so we can make alternate arrangements.

Clients who cannot return to the studio within the 14 day guideline will have their images deleted and they will no longer be available for purchase.
