I've already passed some of my tips on for what sort of outfits to bring for your boudoir photo shoot in an earlier boudoir blog post. In this blog post, we'll talk about getting YOU ready for your boudoir experience.
Planning is so important to make sure that you are well prepared and relaxed on the day of your photoshoot. No one wants to have last-minute panics and arrive at the studio feeling all flustered and stressed because you have forgotten something. I want your boudoir photoshoot to be an indulgent, luxurious, fun experience.
Here are some top tips to help you prepare for your boudoir photoshoot:-
Start Stretching - I recommend that you try to stretch for 20 minutes each day, especially your neck, back and hips. It will really help improve your flexibility. Some of my clients have commented that their shoots were a bit like a pilates work out (don't worry, I don't expect you to be a yoga expert!)
Begin a Skincare Regime - Your skin will love you and so will the camera, exfoliate regularly and don't forget to moisturise constantly. Drinking more water can really help your skin too
Get a Gel Manicure - Another little tip before your shoot - gel polish will help strengthen your nails and will last for up to three weeks. This will ensure you will look fabulous in your photos.
Wax Eyebrows and Upper Lip - Get your brows waxed or threaded by a pro (but don't go too thin).
Wax Body Hair - Wax the hair on your legs and underarms (and don’t forget the Bikini area). Shaving on the day can lead to rashes, which you definitely want to avoid!
3 - 5 DAYS BEFORE
THE DAY BEFORE
I know it seems like a long list, but this really will help you prepare for your shoot and make sure that you are beautifully relaxed when you arrive.
