Session Prep Guide

boudoir portraits, mississippi boudoir photography session prep

So you have booked your session, now what?  Whatever your reason for your session, this experience is more for you.  It can be scary as hell!  It’s like the gym, the hardest part is getting here.  You are going to experience a roller coaster of emotions.  You might even feel sick the morning of your session.  Clear your mind, take some deep breaths.... all you need to do is get here.  As your session date gets closer, your list of reasons to cancel is going to grow.  I beg you to not listen to them.  

THINGS YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW:

  • You do not have to know how to pose yourself.

  • You do not have to know how to give the camera a sexy look.

  • You do not have to lose any weight.

  • You do not have to feel great about yourself.

  • You just need to be yourself

DO'S + DON'T'S:

DO:

  • Let go of expectations for your session. Every session is different and has a different feel. Let things develop organically, and just enjoy the process.

  • Trust us

  • Stand in front of the mirror naked before coming in for your session, and just start the process of being comfortable in your skin. It seems silly, but your body is amazing and tells one hell of a story, listen to it and be proud. Start every day... just one minute. See the bullet point right above this one, if you feel like skipping this step.

  • Get vulnerable with us. Vulnerability = growth. We are here for you.... to listen, to laugh, to cry

  • Eat prior to your session. Nothing you eat that morning will show on camera. This is a workout, you are going to need a lot of energy,

  • Have clean, shaped nails.  A manicure and pedicure are highly recommended, but not required.  Nails cannot be retouched.

  • Drink plenty of water the day before! 

  • STRETCH! Stretch every part of your body because believe it or not, some of these poses feel like yoga! 

DON'T:

  • Over analyze. This is a breeding ground for negativity.

  • Even mention your dislikes about your body. If you do, we will stop what we are doing and talk about it. Don't expect us to be nice if this happens. We will do some tough love if we need to.

  • Be afraid to act silly. We might ask you to dance or make sounds, there is a reason for it.

  • Lock up on us. You are going to be experiencing a lot of emotions that day. If you aren't able to express yourself, we can't customize the experience for what you need.

  • Have chipped nails.

NOW YOU ARE ALL SET! We look forward to working with you & cannot wait to show you how much fun this is about to be! See you soon!
