You did it - you’re booked in for a beauty or boudoir session! Now you might be thinking, what did I get myself into? There’s a lot that goes into a portrait experience and it can seem overwhelming. Here’s a guide to help you when prepping for your shoot - you can leave the rest up to us!
DAY OF YOUR SESSION
If makeup and/or hair styling is included in your package, please arrive with a clean face and dry hair. It’s always helpful to do a light exfoliation on your face, even just with a washcloth. Let the makeup artist know if you have any sensitivities, and feel free to bring some inspiration photos for your makeup look.
Use clear deodorant & moisturize your body before your session.
Don’t forget to eat something and drink lots of water the day before.
A good night’s sleep will ensure you are refreshed for your photoshoot.
My stylists Maggie and Kerrin suggest:
Hydrate LOTS before shoot (makes skin glow).
Exfoliate weekly for the best makeup results.
Moisturize (even if it’s drugstore CeraVe).
Wash and blow out your hair the day before your session with a mousse or gel to build a foundation. Super clean hair won’t hold as well.
If you have eczema or sensitivities to specific makeup/brands, let us know before the session so we can be sure to be prepared.
We suggest not waxing your brows or receiving an “out of the ordinary” facial any closer than 3 days prior to your photo session.
