Then head over to meet Jennifer, our incredibly talented hair and makeup artist, for a complete makeover. After a quick wardrobe change you'll get a crash course on posing before finally making your debut in front of the camera. Plan on anywhere between 3-5 hours total at the studio depending on the number of girls you bring. Also feel free to bring any games, snacks and beverages that you'd like while you're waiting for your turn in hair and makeup and in front of the camera.
What to bring:
You could literally show up with nothing and we'd have you covered! But take some time to think about how you want to be photographed. What's important to you? If there's anything you would love to be photographed in please don't hesitate to bring it along. Having more options is never a bad thing!
Boudoir: When it comes to lingerie we have MANY options however it's not like our gowns where we can easily clamp them in the back if they are too big. I highly recommend bringing a couple of your own selections along just in case.
BRING THE BASICS:
Black panties, black bra and black heels, (If you don't have them in black don't sweat it! It's really just important to have for under our garments) Any jewelry that you love.
Any photos of hair and makeup examples you want to share with us.
How to prepare:
It sounds silly but stretching a few days before will help you in the weird and crazy poses you'll have to hold for abnormal lengths of time. I'm serious, I get texts the day after shoots all the time from gals with super sore muscles! Didn't think you'd have to get your workout on did you?!
Drink lots of water the week of your shoot, it will help with detoxing and bloating plus leave you with a natural glow. Load on the chap-stick the week of as well, it will help your lips stay plump and colored.
Don't forget to paint those nails too. Red, pink or nude colors are all great options that can go with any wardrobe colors.
