WHAT TO WEAR

DRESS TO THRILL

BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY | COWEN ANGUS BAILEY PHOTOGRAPHY

We recommend having wardrobe options that cover all aspects of your personality.

Your boudoir session is the ideal time to explore every aspect of who you really are, especially the parts of you that you might not get to show too often.  Each session is designed to showcase multiple wardrobe changes.

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.”

— Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

WHAT TO EXPECT

ON THE DAY OF YOUR PHOTO-SESSION

BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY | COWEN ANGUS BAILEY PHOTOGRAPHY

The first thing we’ll do, is go through your wardrobe selection and together we’ll pick out the best options and narrow down choices if need be.

*Please note that we are not offering Make-Up at this time in order to follow safety protocols, and have a 100% No-Contact session.

The photo-session itself will be about two hours, and the time will fly.  It’s perfectly natural to be nervous at first, but five minutes in, you will having a blast.  We will guide through every pose, so you don’t have to stress about trying to look beautiful.  You already are beautiful, and it’s our job to capture it.

About two weeks after your photo-session is done, we will meet up to show you your fully edited images.  This is when you get to select the products that are the best fit for you.

If you need your images by a certain date, please let us know and we will make sure it happens.

GETTING READY

BEFORE YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION - SOME DOS AND DON'TS

Dos:
1. Get a good night’s sleep.  You will need all your energy and vitality to be coached and have fun while exuding sensuality.

2. Moisturize.  Supple skin appears gorgeous on camera.

3. Bring multiple wardrobe options.  Many times an outfit you think will work doesn’t.  Whether it doesn’t fit right, isn’t flattering, is in disrepair, or just doesn’t work with the rest of the styling, we need to have options.

4. Get a manicure and pedicure shortly beforehand.  Or do it yourself, but it’s vital to have hands and feet groomed and polished.  It’s best to keep it classic and simple – neutral polish works best, so it can go with all outfits and not be a distraction.

5. Wear clear or no deodorant on the day of your shoot.

6. If waxing, have it done 3-5 days earlier so that any bumps have time to heal.

7. Bring some music.  Put together a play list of your favorite tunes to help set the mood.

8. Show up and have fun, and leave the rest to us.  Taking beautiful photographs is my job, so you just focus on having a good time and performing the actions I direct without the burden of “trying to look good.”

Don’ts:
1. No new haircuts right before the shoot.
2. No fake tans immediately before the shoot.
3. No botox or collagen injections a week before the shoot.
4. No negative self-talk allowed the day of and during the photo-session.
5. No excessive alcohol, salt, or dairy 24 hrs before the photo-session.
6. No tight clothing right before or on the way to the shoot - (skin indentations can be taken care of in photoshop, but it’s best to start with a clean pallet).

FINISHING TOUCHES

THE BEAUTY OF THE EDIT

BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY | COWEN ANGUS BAILEY PHOTOGRAPHY

A NOTE ON RETOUCHING

Professionally edited images are included with your session.  I put a creative touch on each image and we will remove any temporary skin blemishes, such as acne, bruises, indentations from clothing, stretchmarks, or cellulite, and make sure your skin looks smooth, beautiful and vibrant.  I prefer not to remove scars because I think scars are unique and beautiful.  Just like you!

I do not do body reshaping.  I will capture your natural beauty, you looking your absolute best, in camera with flattering posing, lighting and wardrobe.
