Yay!! You’ve booked a boudoir session, and are SO excited! Now you’re faced with the question, “What do I do now?” Don’t worry, we are here to help you feel comfortable and confident walking into your session so you can focus on taking amazing photos!
First, order your lingerie! This part is really fun! Search Pinterest, Google, or other search engines for boudoir looks that you love. This will help you know what kind of lingerie look you are wanting for your session. Don’t know what kind of lingerie you like? No worries! We help guide you towards flattering pieces that will also make you feel comfortable. Also, lingerie isn’t the only thing you can wear for your sessions. If you’re not a lingerie type of girl, there are plenty of other options! If you love riding horses, wear a riding shirt. Love the cozy sweater look with knee-high socks, let’s put that look together for you. Remember, your boudoir session should make you feel like the best version of YOU!
Next, make any appointments you may need for around five days before your session date. If you choose to wax, go ahead and set that appointment up so you don’t have to worry about it later. Some ladies choose to have a pedicure and manicure for their session. If that’s you, we recommend choosing a color that is neutral and won’t distract from the real beauty here…YOU! Need help choosing a location for your appointments? Reach out to us! We have plenty of recommendations in the Birmingham area to help you plan everything out! This is also the time for you to start drinking plenty of water for a luminous skin glow.
Finally, it’s session time! The night before your session, make sure to get plenty of sleep. As you pull up to your studio location, the nerves may be high. Repeat your favorite mantra, I have several if you need some to borrow, breathe, and head into the studio knowing that you are going to have a GREAT time! We know you are nervous, but we’ve worked hard to get to know you in order to make your session day one of comfort and ease. We think we’re pretty easy to get along with, too. Now let’s get to planning and have some fun!
