Preparing for your boudoir session can be a bit nerve wracking for some. But it doesn’t have to be!
Not only am I here to take amazingly sexy boudoir photos of you, I am here to guide you through every step of the process. This includes leading up to, during, and after your boudoir session with me.
I am a huge proponent for having both hair and makeup professionally styled before your session!
Preparing for Your Boudoir Session – Why You Should Leave It to the Pros
Here are a few reasons why I prefer professional over DIY makeup:
I know that many of us are so used to our own faces and we know what we like when it comes to makeup. But have you ever done makeup for a photo shoot? Believe it or not, it is actually much different than when you are preparing for your everyday look.
Makeup needs to be applied much heavier for photos in order to be picked up by the camera. A talented makeup artist understands the effects that studio lights have on your face and they will help contour and shape in order to combat that.
Do you have gorgeous eyes that you love showing off? A professional makeup artist will be able to enhance then even more.
Is your nose a little crooked? Yep, you guessed it! A professional makeup artist can even shape your nose so that it photographs perfectly.
Another reason why I love professional makeup:
When you look good you feel good.
I know that when I have my makeup done it is an instant confidence boost. And I walk with a little more sway in my step. 😉
One of the biggest reasons why I love professional makeup is how much easier it makes preparing for your boudoir session.
My team of professional makeup artist and hair stylist come to you. Your hair and makeup are done on location so that you do not have to stress about having to go to a million different places the morning of your session.
You can quite literally roll out of bed, wash your face, and head on over! And in less than two hours you will look like a supermodel about to walk the runway during Fashion Week.
Having your hair and makeup professionally done makes your boudoir experience stress free. You can sit back an relax while you are pampered.
You do not have to stress about what colors will work best for your session. Your stylists, along with myself, will guide you through everything and ensure that you look absolutely amazing.
In the past, I have had clients who opted to do their own hair and makeup for their boudoir session.
I cannot tell you how many times a client has told me that she curled her hair that morning and by the time her session rolled around her hair was flat. Whomp, whomp!
Preparing for Your Boudoir Session Should Be Fun & Exciting!
When it comes to boudoir, bigger is better! I always recommend going with big, voluminous curls. We want a look that is bigger and bolder than your everyday look because it photographs better.
A professional hair stylist will give you the sexy hair you are wanting, and it will hold throughout your session. And, our professional hair and makeup artists are available in the studio during the duration of your session so that they are able to touch up your look so that you are always camera ready!
Here is an example of professionally styled hair and makeup. Miss D is absolutely gorgeous! There is no doubt about that. But I can definitely say that her session would not have turned out as amazing as it did if she had decided not to have her hair and makeup styled professionally.
The team of professional hair and makeup artists that we work for are extremely talented at their craft! We work with knowledgeable professionals with a wide range of expertise to make sure that we are able to cater to our diverse clientele.
