Tip #1 DO LET US TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP
Milk Intimates Photography has a team of professional hair and makeup artists who will pamper you, their job is to make you look and feel like you’re a goddess. Whatever look you’re after, our talented team are highly skilled and take the time to achieve the look you want. Asking a friend to do it won’t achieve the look we need for your boudoir photoshoots, it must be done professionally by an artist that’s worked in this industry.
Tip #2 BRING A VARIETY OF LINGERIE
Make sure you’ve collected a few garments that make you feel comfortable, lacy lingerie sets, oversized shirt and bodysuit, all of these depend on the look you’re after. Or maybe you want to buy something extra special for your boudoir shoot? Whatever you select, just make sure they all fit you nicely.
TIP #3 GET ENOUGH SLEEP
I know there will probably be a lot of nerves and excitement leading up to your shoot. But do try and get a good night’s sleep prior to your glamour photo shoot. Being sleep deprived can lead to you feeling and looking not as great as you’d like to. So try and get whatever amount of sleep your body needs to have you feeling well rested.
TIP #4 READ REVIEWS AND FIND OUT PRICING UP FRONT BEFORE YOU SELECT A BOUDOIR/ GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Go for a glamour photographer’s work you love and trust. Entrusting a mediocre photographer that you’re hoping can understand your vision and style simply won’t work. With photography you pay for what you get, there is a huge amount of work that goes into boudoir photography, the post production can take weeks. Check their google reviews, invest in quality not quantity. If it means saving up or finance, that is a good thing, most photographers have finance options to select from.
TIP #5 LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
Locations that are unique will add to the creative look of the glamour portraits and boudoir photoshoots, we’re after places that aren’t crowded by people and haven’t been photographed a million times before. If you’re after the beach look, this needs to be done an hour before sunset. We can easily do the glamour photoshoot in your home, as long as it’s set up with enough light, make sure you’ve done your research so the setting is right.
TIP #6 IF YOU’RE GOING TO TAN, TRY THE TAN FIRST SO YOU AREN’T GREEN OR GET BAD TAN LINES
Please please please trial your tan out first, and get this done professionally, no point in risking a quick day before tan with a therapist you’ve never used. This may leave you really upset with the quality and then it’s up to me to fix in photoshop, (this isn’t easy) Ideally having your tan 2-3 days prior to your boudoir shoot is best.
TIP #7 DON’T BRING ALONG AN AUDIENCE
It can be very distracting during a photoshoot when there is an audience, there is usually limited space and having another person in the room can affect lighting also.
I find that clients don’t allow themselves to let go enough or enjoy the experience when there are others present. There is a lot of time and trust spent before and during your session so you feel completely comfortable with your photographer.
TIP #8 DO TELL ME ALL THE PHOTOS YOU’D LOVE TO ACHIEVE
This is important so we’re on the same wavelength so I know all the different types of shots you like and the look you want to try.
TIP #9 DO START ON COLLAGEN BEFORE YOUR SESSION
Collagen is an amazing all rounder, you’ll notice your skin is soft and clear, I highly recommend the ‘’Two Islands’’ Beauty collagen powder, your skin will be glowing after a couple of weeks. Consult your Doctor if pregnant first.
TIP #10 DO RELAX
This is the big one… relax and have fun! Sip on some champagne, be pampered, and leave with a whole new level of confidence. Boudoir photoshoots are all about you – this is your day to enjoy. Feel free to bring along your own music playlist if you really want to set the mood for the day too!
