First of all, thanks for choosing me to take your Boudoir Virginity. I'm so excited!
You probably have a lot of questions, which I expected. Most of your questions are FAQ's for me, so figured I'd answer all of your questions in one place, while preparing you for your first session!
Is my body ready?
Yes. Your body is ready now. If you want to 'hit the gym', go for it...after your session. You don't need to be in a specific shape to enjoy your session. Come as your are!
Tan lines, bruises, and other body marks.
Photoshop is a thing, but I only use it to take away TEMPORARY issues like sun burns. I've seen it all; long board crashes, bite marks on the inner thigh, a gnarly zit that JUST HAD TO POP UP BEFORE YOUR SESSION. Don't worry. I got ya.
Can I still do this on my period?
Yep. If it makes you feel better, I once totally forgot about my woman-hood, and modelled with toilet paper between my legs (in a g-string). Anything's possible.
What should I wear?
Whatever you want! No, really! Boudoir can be created from anything. Bring whatever you have in mind, and I'll work my magic. If you want specifics, the obvious matching sets, loose t-shirts, stockings, your S/O's shirt, or even NOTHING! Lingerie can be pricy, which is why I have a Client Closet for you to access (xs-xl). You can realistically show up empty-handed and we'll still be fine!
How should I prepare?
Wear loose fitted clothing. Jeans and tight clothes will leave marks on your body, and make more work.
Eat. Please. You won't look any different if you have lunch, so please eat. Maybe avoid a huge, greasy meal to avoid bloating, but don't starve yourself!
If you plan on having makeup done, arrive with a bare, moisturized face. If you're doing your own hair and makeup, do what makes you feel best.
No need to get a tan, or do anything extra to yourself unless you WANT to!
Don't be nervous. I've seen all of the bits and pieces of the female body, and nothing can surprise me. I'm going to be right up in your business, so just trust that you can be comfortable!
How do I pose?
Okay, now we're getting to the shooting. I will guide you the entire way. I will be beside you, showing you what to do, and I'll continue to do so once you're in the pose. If you're getting the hang of it, I'll let you know. Typically, girls will get more comfortable as we go, and need less direction towards the end.
If you feel uncomfortable in a pose, we won't do it. I also take requests if there is something you'd like to try.
How will the session go?
To start, I'll get you to lay out what you've brought to wear. We'll pick from that and the client closet to decide on your looks. You'll decide which look you're most comfortable in! After we've shot your looks, I always ask if you'd like to do any nude, or implied nude (no visible nipples or bits) to finish your session. This is at your discretion.
Can I add Polaroids or OKT Lashes at the last second?
Yes! I keep OKT Lashes and Polaroid film in stock. If you want even just one Polaroid, or a whole set, we can do that. I'm happy to help you get a pair of OKT Lashes on!
