Preparing for your Boudoir Session

There are many factors to consider when you’re getting ready for your “Strips” Project photo session.

Here we’ve listed a few details you might wish to review. If you follow these simple tips, you’ll present yourself in the best possible light in the photographs we capture.


It’s essential that your skin be free of unnatural intentions during our session. To help ensure we avoid this common problem, for at least two hours prior to the session, please consider wearing loose fitting clothing (think warm ups) that won’t constrict your body. Additionally, I’d strongly recommend against wearing undergarments or jewelry as they can often be more constrictive than outer clothing and will cause skin intentions that will appear in the product of my photography.

Feel free to consider simple accessories like earrings, bracelets, rings, or necklaces. Based on what you have available, we may elect to use those during your session. Or, for the purity of the session, you may choose to ignore all accouterments. Please  have them available upon our arrival for viewing.

Since we are shooting implied style shots, you may want to have a robe on hand for those moments when we are adjusting lighting or between photographs.

We recommend that you use moisturizer immediately before we begin our portrait session. We also recommend that you have a manicure a few days before the session as your hands may be featured in the photography.

Try to get a good night’s sleep before your photo session and avoid alcohol. You’d be amazed how easily bags under your eyes can detract from your photos! You should also avoid stress during your photo session. Since our goal is to make sure you look natural, bring things that help you relax. We will even play your favorite music.
