When it comes to something as sultry and exquisite as a boudoir shoot, even the most confident women start doubting herself. “What if I look too skinny?” “How will I be almost naked in front of a group of strangers?” “What if I get panicked and thus, can’t pose at all?” “What if the stretch marks show? I just delivered my baby!” There are so many questions in a woman’s mind. But darling, trust me, boudoir is not about your perfect body. Real women have marks and acne, and much more. Boudoir is a journey to celebrate yourself. It is much beyond nudity. It is about yourself.
So stop thinking about anything else, and start prepping yourself for the day. Make sure you choose the best Atlanta Boudoir Photographer so that you are comfortable around the person and the result is fabulous. Go through his portfolio before signing up for him. Once you hire a boudoir photographer, ask him to give you some tips to prepare for the big day. I am sure that he will give you smart suggestions. And if you are looking for my suggestions, then kindly give the rest of this blog a good read.
The first thing that you need to do is mentally prepare yourself. You have to pose while you are partially clothed in front of strangers and it can be a big deal for you. But it is not that big of a deal for them because they do these kinds of shoots every day. They will rather ensure that you feel comfortable. Some studios offer snacks, drinks, etc. as well.
Secondly, start practicing the poses. Yes, I know it can be difficult but you always have the internet to help you, right? Check out the leading boudoir blog sites for some inspirations. Stand in front of the mirror and find out which poses will suit you the most. How do you visualize yourself in the pictures? How will your boyfriend or husband will to see you in the pictures? Will you go full nude or partially clothed? Take out at least twenty minutes from your schedule and start prepping up. Although the Houston Boudoir Photographer will guide you through the process, it is still better to put in some efforts since it is your photoshoot. If you are thinking of getting a few pictures framed, then make sure that you choose the poses carefully. If there are some body parts that you are not very confident of, keep them in mind while deciding the poses. Do not worry as I have separately written a blog on the same. You can refer to that.
Call the parlor lady or visit the salon. You need to get a trim, your hair color needs to be retouched, you need to get a manicure and a pedicure, ge6 yourself waxed at all the necessary places, etc. If you are getting a tan for the shoot, get it done by an expert. If you want to get a facial, do it at least two days before the shoot.
Sleep well – this is perhaps the most important tip. You need to look rested!
You should also go for a healthy diet that would include fruits, veggies, spinach, fruit juices and plenty of water. Say no to those cheeseburgers, pizzas, fries, and coke. Trust me, it will show on your skin.
Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing are the must so follow that regime. So these are a few tips that will help you prepare for the big day.
