FANTASY PHOTO SESSION
Everyone has a different perception of “SEXY”. Use your imagination to cultivate your own theme. Google or youtube boudoir photography and let your imagination create your style. Remember to bring the basics… Bras, panties, corsets, thigh high stockings, garter belts. Also tank tops, booty shorts, sports jerseys & men’s business shirts are all popular items. Include accessories, as well as those sexy shoes. Three out fits changes are recommended.

HAIR AND MAKE UP
Hair and make up may be done on site for an extra fee. Allow an extra hour for this service. If not, hair and make up should be completely finished before arriving at your shoot. Make up should be applied heavier than usual. (ie, night time wear). How to videos on youtube.com are a great help if you interested in doing your own styling. It is highly recommended that you wear false eyelashes for your sessions. As this glamorous effect really makes the
“EYES POP”. False eyelashes are the trademark of the Vintage Pinup Girl.

COUPLES SESSIONS
Engagement and anniversary portraits are all the rage…These sessions are romantic, sensual, playful, fun and always tasteful. Typically these photos reflect you and your significant other gazing, cuddling, kissing or embracing. A great excuse for a weekend get away.

SESSION LOCATION
Your session can be done at the studio, your home, a local hotel, vintage bed and breakfast or outside in a private or secluded area.

TIPS
The day before and the morning of your session drink extra of water. Moisturize a little more the two days prior to your sessions. This aids in bright eyes, bushy tails and hydrated skin. If you can’t visit a salon. “Give yourself the gift of an "In Home Spa Day” the day or two before your shoot is also recommended. “Gently” washing your face with a little wet warm baking soda and an electric toothbrush provides a mini-microderm treatment. This exfoliating technique provides a fresh glamourous glow to the skin. Hair color, facial and a mani-pedi are also recommended two days before your shoot. Red finger nails and toes are always a desirable look.
It’s all in the details…
Remember to wear loose fitting clothing to your shoot. Avoid tight fitting undergarments or wear none on your way to the studio (as the elastic leaves deep red pressure marks on your skin).
