5 Things You Need to Know Before Your Session
Like most things, there a tips and tricks that will really help you to make the most of what you're investing in! For Boudoir, it is no different! My sessions are about you embracing your butterflies, throwing caution to the wind and enjoying one of the most amazing, confidence boosting, love infusing experiences you can ever gift yourself with! So...here are a few of my favourite tips to give women before heading into their session...
1. Throw Away Your Expectations.
Lots of women will tell you what to expect, what to do, what to not do, what to wear, make-up to put on, how your hair should be done...it's exhausting! So instead...let those expectations GO! Embrace the moment, the butterflies! Your nerves! Your experience will be completely different from someone elses...and thats a good things! The only expectation you need have coming into your session is that you will leave an empowered woman, confident in herself!
2. Wardrobe is KEY!
Lots of women ask me..."What should I wear?" My answer is always the same: "Something that you are sexy comfortable in - not hiding in!" Many of my clients worry about how they will look if they haven't yet reached a goal weight, or gotten rid of those last 5 pounds! With the right lingerie, you don't need to! I can work with you during the session to pose you in ways that will hurt later, but blow your mind! You won't even notice that you hadn't lost those 5 pounds ;D If you want to know what might suit your gorgeous figure, I've put together the perfect reading material for you, just click here!
3. Get Nervous...
This one might sound a little contradictory. But who wouldn't feel nervous before heading into a boudoir session? You'll be dressing down into your under garments, and then we'll be taking some incredibly sexy images of you! BUT the key here is to embrace the nerves and the butterflies! They are part of what make the session amazing. They allow you to explore and trust my coaching your through the process, they keep you excited because you know its only going to get better!
4. Have Fun!
If you have a particularly interesting them you'd like to bring to your session - let me know! If you want laugher to pervade your images, then lets get you laughing! The session is all about bringing your unique personality to the table, and making sure it comes through in your images! You want a finished product that represents you - the best way to do it is make sure you are having FUN! One of my favourite sessions was with an amazing woman who LOVED Harley Quinn...she wanted to incorporate sequins, colours & a cute little sweater! Not what you would typically image for a session? And YET...so perfect for her vision!
5. YOU are READY
Thinking that it may be best to wait a little bit before you book, hoping to re-book your session at a later date...NO WAY! Boudoir is not about "being ready"...its about CELEBRATING YOU...exactly where you are! Its about being vulnerable in front of the camera so that we as photographers can show you just how incredible you look! Its about stepping outside of yourself and your comfort zone to show that little voice inside that you are READY and more importantly, you are worth celebrating!
