What Do I Wear? It's hard for me to be specific on what to wear, because what each woman feels sexy in varies and is so very personal. I do know that I'm a huge fan of the way black lingerie photographs. If you are giving this is as a gift for a loved one, I encourage you to incorporate something of theirs info the shoot if possible. For instance, if your loved one is a sports fan- bring a jersey, a business exec- bring on of their ties or button-up shirts, etc.
What Should I Bring? For a 30 minute session, wear one outfit under your clothes and then bring one more. For an hour session, wear one outfit, and bring 2-3 more. For an hour and a half session, wear one and bring 3-4 more, for at two hour session, wear one and bring about 4-5 more.
What Should I Expect? I think the biggest concern is that clients think they are supposed to know what to do. Pretty please don't stress over this! That's my job honey! Whereas some photography is more on the candid side, boudoir isn't. I direct and lead the shoot. In fact, I don't just tell you what to do, I show you (Yes, as in flop myself on the bed, stick the girls out and everything). You just need to bring yourself, and what you are wearing- let me and the hair and makeup crew take it from there!
Dos & Don'ts
Don't go out and get a dark tan (spray or from a bed). A healthy glow is OK, but looking like you just got back from a 10 day Jamaican vacation is not. It doesn't photograph well and ends up looking almost dirty instead of creamy, smooth, and soft.
Do wear a corset or form shaping lingerie if you aren't a fan of your midsection. It gives shape and hides any stretch marks. Or, bring an oversized sweater. button-up, or baby doll style lingerie.
Don't wear too small of thigh highs. They tent to cut in (even on the smallest of thighs) and that just simply isn't flattering. Make sure you buy one size larger to prevent thigh muffin top.
Do bring a bra or piece that you think the girls look fantastic in.
Don't be afraid to have a glass of champagne while you're getting all glammed up with hair and makeup! I'll have some on hand, as a little liquid courage never hurts in this type of setting.
Do make sure you wear a top with support if you are well endowed (naturally) or have had children. I, like most, wish I had nice pretty girls. But, facts are facts- after two children, the girls don't really hang where I'd like them to.
