When you get to chatting about the list; it is actually quite funny! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
WHAT TO DO VERSUS WHAT NOT TO DO IN REGARDS TO INTIMATE PHOTOGRAPHY
DO: Wear something sexy – doesn’t matter it is covering your booty or are barely there at all. Make sure they fit nicely, are in good condition and are a material that makes YOU feel sexy and confident.
DON’T: Wear granny panties! Granny panties are for comfy times- in your bed, at home! Not for your intimate sexy photographs.
DO: Have your hair and make-up professionally done, This will ensure you have the right look and amount of glam to look good under the professional lighting at the studio! Plus it’s more time to feel pampered and who doesn’t want that?!
DON’T: Look on Pinterest and decide to get creative with your own hair and make-up. Let’s leave the experiments for home and girl time! We want to ensure you feel and look your absolute best the day of the shoot!
DO: Exfoliate/shave your legs, arm pits, bikini area etc! You want to feel silky and smooth after all, This is optional for our male clients.
DON’T: Accidentally forget to shave! Ahhh!
DO: Come with natural or lightly sun kissed skin.
DON’T: Use spray tans (booth or professional) or self tanner, we definitely do not recommend the use of either one. If you opt to use either a spray tan or self tanner; Please note that spray tans and self tanner do not photograph well in most cases.
DO: Wear outfits that you feel and look sexy in. You want to ensure the outfits fit nicely also.
DON’T: Wear outfits that are too tight or too baggy – you get the idea ?
DO: Come to your shoot alone ready to be pampered and have a day dedicated to you!
DON’T: Bring your mama, your bestie or your baby to your shoot. They will be distracting and will take away from the boudoir experience!
DO: Opt for a mani/pedi- French tips work nicely as it is a classic look and will not clash with anything you decide to wear/not wear!
DON’T: Get too excited with patterns, dark/bright colours. We do not want your nails distracting from your beautiful face!
