PHOTOSHOOT PREP GUIDE

You did it - you’re booked in for a beauty or boudoir session! Now you might be thinking, what did I get myself into? There’s a lot that goes into a portrait experience and it can seem overwhelming. Here’s a guide to help you when prepping for your shoot - you can leave the rest up to us!

HAIR COLOR/EYEBROWS

Having freshly trimmed and colored hair and eyebrows done - if that’s your thing - will make you feel like a supermodel during your session!

SPRAY TANS & TANLINES

For your session we do not recommend a spray tan if you haven’t had one done before as it will affect how your skin tone will photograph. You should also stay out of the sun to avoid any burns before your session!

HANDS AND FEET

If you normally do your nails, get a manicure and pedicure before you session (or DIY at home). Your hands and feet will show in many of your images and we don’t want chipped polish!

DAY OF YOUR SESSION

If makeup and/or hair is booked, arrive with a clean face and dry hair. It’s always helpful to do a light exfoliation on your face, even just with a washcloth. Let the makeup artist know if you have any sensitivities, and feel free to bring some inspiration photos for your makeup look.

Use clear deodorant & moisturize your body before your session.

Don’t forget to eat something and drink lots of water the day before.
A good night’s sleep will ensure you are refreshed for your photoshoot.
