Is there anything I should do leading up to and day of my session?

In order to be prepared for your shoot I compiled a list of some helpful hints and tips to help you prepare for your session! If you have any questions I always welcome and encourage questions.

{Before Your Session}

Exfoliate your face and body.

Consider how your fingernails and toenails look. It's not necessary to get a manicure or a pedicure, but make sure everything is neat and clean. A clear polish will only add to your photos.

Get your eyebrows done.

Shave/wax~ you'll want to wax at least a day or two before your session to avoid red or irritated skin.

Stay away from the sun in the days before your session. While a sun-kissed look is often pleasing, it won’t be in your photos. Notes on spray tanning~ If you have never spray tanned before, or experience uneven results, please do a trial run before your session.

Make sure you do not have swimsuit tan lines.

Cut tags from see through lingerie.

Practice posing and facial expressions in front of a mirror. Look at magazines or websites to familiarize yourself with some basic poses. I can give instructions and guidance, but it always helps to be prepared with a few poses and ideas of your own.

{Day Of Session}

Arrive with clean and moisturized skin. Unless you are doing your own makeup, plan on arriving without makeup.

Wear loose clothing the day of your session. Tight – or even form-fitting – clothing will leave marks on your body, and we want your skin to be as smooth and flawless as possible.

Brush your lips with a toothbrush to remove dry skin.

Lather up with body lotion.

Drink plenty of water the day of and in the days before your session. This will ensure that your skin is hydrated, which will also make sure your makeup goes on more smoothly and your skin has a healthy glow. You might even consider exfoliating (gently!) a few days prior to your session and moisturize before getting dressed on the day of.

Be sure to eat before your session. Not a huge meal, but the session will take a while and you'll need your energy to hold some of those fantastic poses, so eat at least a light meal. And feel free to bring snacks with you (that won't mess with your makeup).

If you use a white deodorant, eliminate it the day of your session! Your clothes and your skin will remain the colors they should be.

{Things To Bring}

Your sexy outfits.

Accessories: Jewelry, shoes, stockings, something of his, your wedding veil, etc.

Feel free to bring your own music on an ipod. If you do not have your own music I will happily provide some tunes.
