Five Days Before Your Shoot…
Let's talk about hair.
Make sure your eyebrows are nicely shaped and groomed.
If you wax, you'll want to do so a few days before your shoot to avoid any redness or bumpiness on the skin.
If you’re planning to color or cut your hair, give yourself a few days to make sure you are happy with the new changes.
Nails and Skin
Be sure to get a salon manicure and pedicure for a flawless finish.
Avoid the sun – while a base tan will be nice in photos, red, blotchy skin will not. PLEASE – DO NOT SPRAY TAN. If you want to have achieve a natural tan, you can use this tanning lotion 3 days prior to the shoot and Stay Hydrated!
Drink plenty of water for luminous skin.
Avoid or lower your salt intake and avoid alcohol if you’re worried about retaining water.
Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly. Steam or iron your clothing if necessary and hang them properly so they keep their shape as you travel to the location.
If you want to feel more comfortable, you can purchase nude nipple covers pasties. (check my Instagram link for photoshoot essentials)
The Day Before Your Shoot…
Bathe, shave and moisturize.
Remove ALL price tags, size & care labels, from clothing. They can ruin the look of your photos.
Make sure everything is packed and ready for the shoot: hair spray, clothing, heels, jewelry, accessories, props. etc...
Allow yourself plenty of time to get to the location without stressing.
Enjoy a relaxed, quiet evening.
Plan for a good night’s sleep – eight hours is ideal.
The Day of Your Shoot...
If you plan to do professional make-up, schedule your appointment about 2.5 hours prior to your appointment. Avoid sunblock so that the skin does not appear shiny. Use camera-ready makeup. PLEASE – DO NOT SPRAY TAN or Tanning lotions.
Use clear deodorant
Wear loose-fitting clothing to your session to avoid red marks on your skin.
Eat something light but filling before you leave the house.
