Waxing is good 2 days before your shoot to avoid looking irritated. Shave the night or day before. Check the back area too!
Arrive in loose fitting clothing. This will avoid putting marks on your body. No bra, jeans, tight fitting clothing of any kind. This also includes elastic bands and socks. Yoga pants, loose dress, sweats and a loose top are great.
If you are shooting at the beach, bring a towel with you! You will be getting wet.
If you are heavily spray tanned, you will appear orange or red in your photos. This cannot be corrected in photoshop, so go lightly. If you are spray tanned, you will not be able to shoot with any water or in the bathtub sets, your tan will streak, smear and stain everything.
If you have visible tan lines, and they bother you, either use a self tanner or go to a tanning bed to even out - especially if you are chocolate with a vanilla ass. (We personally think it's cute.)
Bring any items from your collection with you that you wish to be photographed in and please iron or lay them flat if wrinkled - we do not have a steamer or iron.
Need lingerie but don't want to break the bank? Check out Amazon and Yandy - they have all kinds of cool stuff and great prices! We have a few items in our collection, you will be given a link to the online closet with your confirmation. If there items you want for your shoot, let us know!
Bring nylon thigh highs just in case. We stock numerous pairs, but they do get torn easily. We wouldn't want you to go without if we are having a particularly busy day.
It is recommended to all clients who are size 0-2 to bring items with you - we don't have as much in that size - Lingerie that tiny is super hard to find! If you are over size 20, please bring your items with you. If you are heavily busted, over DD, please being your items with you.
Bring your own undies and bra/panty sets - we do not provide them.
Practice making your "sexy face" in the mirror! Yes, you will feel stupid, but it really helps!!!
For those of you who are letting us do the make-up and/or hair:
Hair: Come with dry & mildly dirty hair. It will hold a style better than squeaky clean hair. That being said, you know your hair - if one day dirty hair is greasy, girl wash it please!
Make-Up: Come with a clean, make-up free face. If you have a favorite gloss or lipstick or cosmetics that you have but have no idea how to use, feel free to bring them, LOL.
For those of you who are doing your own make-up and/or hair:
Hair: Have your hair camera ready. Use too much hairspray, it's okay! If you need to come in rollers, that's fine.
Make-Up: Have your make-up on and camera ready. It is not necessary for you to put it on extra thick if that's not your normal look. If you are striving for a natural look, use a light coverage foundation and mascara with a clear gloss. Of you want glam, use a full coverage foundation and contour and shimmer away!
You must use some kind of foundation, unless the gods have blessed you with perfect skin. Bring your cosmetics with you, just in case we need to add more :-) Bring different lipsticks if you'd like to change the color for each outfit.
Do not plan to arrive "early" to do your full hair or make-up on site. Ready means ready.
What to Expect
When you arrive to the venue, please text your photographer directly so that she can let you in or meet you in the lobby of the hotel. We keep all of our doors locked at all times for the safety of ourselves and our clients. Our doors are never just open.
You will be asked to verify your age. You must be at least 18 years of age or older.
We will choose three main backgrounds, areas and sets for you to shoot on. We will go over all your ideas and offer ours as well and figure out all the nuances of what you are looking to achieve from your shoot. Each shoot is different and fully customized to fit your preferences.
Your photographer is going to guide you through all the poses by physically demonstrating them to you. It's a work out, so make sure to have a snack before you come in. We will put you in the right positions, shoot from the best angles and help you with the facial expressions. It's normal to feel stupid at first, or just a little awkward. We will focus on all the good and minimize anything you are uncomfortable with. Within a few clicks, you'll be working the camera like a pro.
If you are coming camera ready, expect to be in shoot for about and hour and a half to two hours. If we are doing make-up and hair, about three to three and a half hours.
Once we have completed the session, your photos go into editing production. It takes about 3 days.
You will schedule your date to view your images online. The gallery will be live for 24 hours, so be sure to chose a day where you will be available to view them. You will receive an email when they are ready to be viewed with instructions for selecting and ordering!
If you would like to view without a time limit, you can put down a $200 deposit to keep them online for up to a month. Deposits go toward the purchase of your photos and any remainder wll be refunded.
After you leave, you're gonna wanna do it again and tell everyone you know. Spread the word!
