Hello, gorgeous! So, you've booked your boudoir photoshoot—congrats on embracing your fabulous self!

Now, let's make sure you're as prepared as a queen on her coronation day. Here are ten must-know tips to help you slay your boudoir session, from skincare secrets to wardrobe wonders. Let’s dive in, shall we?


1. Skincare: Glow, Baby, Glow

Drink plenty of water (yes, I know, revolutionary advice) and moisturize like your life depends on it. A gentle exfoliation a few days before can help, too. Just avoid trying any new skincare products right before your shoot — nobody wants a surprise breakout.


2. Hair: Tame the Mane

Whether you’re rocking luscious locks or a sleek bob, make sure your hair is clean and styled. If you're planning to get a haircut or color, do it at least a week before. We love a fresh look, but not the fresh-from-the-salon shock.


3. Nails: Tiny Details, Big Impact

Your hands and feet will be in the spotlight, too. Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure. Neutral or classic colors work best—unless you’re feeling bold and want to rock that electric blue. You do you, boo.


4. Wardrobe: Outfit Ordeal

Bring a variety of outfits if you're not using my client closet — lingerie sets, a favorite oversized sweater, or even that little black dress that makes you feel unstoppable. Think textures: lace, silk, satin. Pack more than you think you'll need; options are your best friend.


5. Accessories: Less is More

Accessorize wisely. A statement necklace, some delicate bracelets, or even a chic hat can add a touch of glam without stealing the show. Remember, the focus is on you.


6. Rest: Beauty Sleep is Real

A good night’s sleep is your secret weapon. Dark circles and tired eyes are not invited to this party. So, tuck in early the night before and dream sweet dreams of the fabulousness to come.


7. Hydration: Sip Sip Hooray

Keep hydrating right up to the shoot, but maybe lay off the coffee a bit. Caffeine can dehydrate you and make you jittery. And trust me, no one wants shaky hands while they're trying to hold a pose.


8. Posing: Practice Makes Perfect

Yes, I’m talking about practicing your poses. Stand in front of the mirror and channel your inner supermodel. Think about angles that flatter you and highlight your favorite features. Remember, arched back, pointed toes, and an elongated neck are about to be your new best friends.


9. Confidence: Your Secret Weapon

Confidence is the most stunning thing you can wear. Forget the insecurities and focus on what makes you feel amazing. You’re here to celebrate you, flaws and all. Trust me, confidence radiates through the camera lens.


10. Have Fun: This is Your Moment

Above all, have fun! This is your time to shine, to embrace your inner diva, and to revel in your own beauty. Laugh, smile, and enjoy every minute. This experience is all about celebrating you.


See you on the other side of the camera!
