Preparing For Your Session

The best way to rid yourself of nerves before an event that makes you anxious is to be totally prepared. If your boudoir photoshoot has you feeling a little intimidated, you can rest easy knowing your boudoir experience is going to be a fabulous one. Following just a few simple tips to prepare for your shoot will have you feeling glamorous and confident!

Haircuts and Waxing

In the week leading up to your appointment make sure you do all the things that make you feel the most confident about your appearance. If you like a fresh haircut, a root touch-up, or an eyebrow wax be sure to schedule these things about a week before your photoshoot. This gives you time to adjust any inconsistencies or mistakes in your haircut before the big day. If you're planning to have any other waxing done, make sure you do this several day before your shoot to eliminate any lingering redness.

Test Out Your Accessories

Trying to wrap a string of pearls around your neck sexily for the first time can feel awkward and, even silly. Play around with what accessories you are planning to bring ahead of time to see how they feel in your hands and what you feel comfortable doing. Jewelry, shoes, hairpiece, and hats are all great ideas to test out.


Plenty of water in the days leading up to your shoot will leave your skin with a healthy, happy, glow. Try to avoid things that will dehydrate your skin like coffee and alcohol.


Moisturize your skin, get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy breakfast. Doing these things as part of your morning routine will make you feel ready to tackle anything, even your boudoir shoot.
