Boudoir Session Prep

I am SO excited to be doing your upcoming boudoir session with you! I am sure you have a few questions… how do I prep for the shoot? What should I bring? What do I WEAR?! Well don’t stress, I’ve put together this prep guide and fashion tips to help guide you through all of this. Above everything else, just remember to have FUN! These sessions are all about celebrating you, and your beauty! And I promise you will leave your session feeling beautiful, confident, and so excited for the end results.

First – check out Pinterest for endless inspiration. You will learn how other women have embraced their femininity, beauty and innate sexiness before the camera. Create your own Pinterest board and start pinning your ideas – and feel free to share with me so that I can get a feel for the vibe you’re going for.

One of the most common questions I get before a boudoir shoot is how do you prep?  Here is a little timeline I’ve put together to help you will any pre-shoot planning.

Five Days Before Your Shoot…

  • If you wax, do so a few days before your shoot to avoid any bumpiness or redness.
  • Make sure your eyebrows are nicely shaped and groomed.
  • If you’re planning to visit the salon for a haircut or color, then give yourself a few days to make sure you are happy with it.
  • Be sure to get a salon manicure and pedicure for a flawless finish.
  • Stay out of the sun – while a base tan will be nice in photos, red, blotchy skin will not.
  • PLEASE – DO NOT SPRAY TAN. Your creamy, natural skin tone photographs best!
  • Drink plenty of water for luminous skin.
  • Lower your salt intake and avoid alcohol if you’re worried about retaining water.
  • Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly; remove all tags and labels. Steam or iron your ensembles and hang them properly so they keep their shape as you travel to the studio.

The Day Before Your Shoot…

  • Bathe, shave and moisturize.
  • Remove ALL price tags, size & care labels, etc. from clothing, especially from lingerie and panties. They can ruin otherwise great photographs.
  • Double-check everything is properly packed and ready for the shoot: heels, jewelry, accessories, props.
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to get to the location without stressing. Check weather and traffic reports to ensure you have allotted enough time for unexpected delays.
  • Enjoy a relaxed, quiet evening. Don’t stress! This will be SO fun!
  • Get some good sleep!

The Day of Your Shoot…

  • Use clear deodorant please.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your session to avoid red marks on your skin (no jeans, tight socks or tight clothing, for instance).
  • Eat something light but filling before you leave the house.
  • Arrive to your Hair & Make up appointment with a clean and moisturized face and CLEAN HAIR (important!).
  • Have your final Wolf Photography Session payment ready via PayPal or cash.
  • Most important: Take a deep breath and RELAX. It’s completely normal to be little nervous before your shoot, but please don’t worry because you will be in very good hands. I will show you exactly how to pose and work with you to get the perfect shot.
