Prepare for your session

  • Keep an eye on those tan lines!
  • Exfoliate your face and body. Be careful not to try any new products, stick to what you know won’t cause your skin to react.
  • Make sure your fingernails and toenails look neat and clean. A clear polish will only add to your photos, but if you want you can of course go for a full mani-pedi!
  • Get your eyebrows done.
  • Shave or wax at least 6 hours before your session.
  • Stay away from the sun in the days before your session. That sun-kissed look looks great in person, but it doesn’t look pleasing when photographed.
  • I recommend only getting a spray tan if you’ve already experienced good results, and you have a tanning salon that does great and even work. If you’ve never done it before, I would suggest to skip it. I can blend your skin and make uneven skin look more even, but I do charge an additional fee for this sort of work.
  • Remove the tags from transparent lingerie.

On the day

  • Please apply clean and moisturized. Please don’t use any makeup.
  • Using a toothbrush, exfoliate your lips to remove dry skin and increase blood circulation to make them look healthier and more luscious.
  • Apply your favorite body lotion.
  • Wear comfortable, loose clothing the day of your session. Tight, or even form-fitting clothing leaves marks on your body, and we want your skin to be as smooth and flawless as possible. If you’re comfortable doing so, don’t wear undergarments; it’ll be our little secret, and it might even help you get into a sexier mindset!
  • Drink lots of water in the days before your session. Maybe skip alcohol for at least a few days to keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated. The better your skin is hydrated, the better the makeup will apply, and the sexier you’ll look! Maybe exfoliate a few days before your session, and moisturize the morning of the shoot.
  • Don’t forget to eat. You don’t have to have a huge breakfast/lunch/dinner beforehand, but the session does take a while, so bring some snacks that wont mess up your makeup and will give you energy throughout your session. Posing is hard work, and you’ll need your energy because we’re going to make you sweat!
  • Please don’t use a white deodorant the day of your session! It can affect your skin tone, and it stains your clothing.

What to bring

  • Bring your sexiest outfits. A classic option is of course a black bra and panties. Bring an evening gown if you look great in it!
  • Panty hose, thigh high stockings, fishnets, knee or thigh high socks.
  • Over-sized cashmere sweaters, satin robes, or a men’s button-down shirts are always sexy!
  • Accessories: Jewelry (pearls are always good), something of his, your wedding veil or anything you would like to wear!
  • A selection of high heeled shoes, stilettos, boots, doesn’t matter what it is as long as it’s sexy!
