Beauty Prep: Enhancing Your Natural Glow

While professional hair and makeup are often part of the boudoir experience, here are some pre-shoot beauty tips:

  • Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy skincare routine in the weeks leading up to your shoot
  • Consider a gentle exfoliation treatment a few days before
  • Get plenty of rest the night before to ensure you look and feel refreshed

Posing and Expression: Unleashing Your Inner Model

Don’t worry if you’re not experienced with posing – that’s what I’m here for! However, practicing a bit beforehand can help you feel more comfortable. Try these tips:

  • Practice different facial expressions in the mirror
  • Look up boudoir poses online and try mimicking them
  • Remember, natural and relaxed often photographs best
