1. SKIN – let’s talk about your skin. For the love of God, please DON’T over-use self tanners and stay out of the sun. A photographer’s nightmare is having to Photoshop weird skin tones and sunburn/tan lines. DO moisturize your skin for a natural glow. Glossy, shiny skin photographs well and also brings out muscle definition and tone. As a general rule, don’t do anything too crazy beforehand (i.e. don’t get a facial or your eyebrows waxed for the first time the day before your shoot), because if anything goes wrong you will be a total stress ball during your session.
  1. HAIR & MAKEUP – DO get your hair and makeup up professionally done, get a natural mani/pedi, and most definitely get false eyelashes put on. They may feel too large, but they photograph well, especially when you are looking down and off to the side. You always want to exaggerate your features for the camera, especially your eyes and lips.
  1. WARDROBE – Wear loose fitting clothing the day of so that you don’t have markings when you strip down. Bring clothing that makes you FEEL sexy, not what you THINK is sexy. Don’t purposely go out and buy lingerie that doesn’t make you feel comfortable or is over the top. It will read in your photos, on your face, and in your body language.The sexiest clothing items to bring are fall-off-the-shoulder tops, cropped soft sweaters, a man’s button down shirt/tie, lacy underthings, simple black and white bras/panties (they can pair with other things), sheer slips/teddies, anything vintage, stockings/thigh highs/soft over-the-knee socks, sexy heels and subtle jewelry and hair pieces/flowers. Layering items is always a good thing to keep in mind. I tell clients to bring as many clothing options as they can.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    (If it gets past Halloween stock up on any special props like wigs, gloves, stockings, or even a French Maid costume. All of the Halloween stores will be clearing out their inventory at huge discounts.)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Bras and matching panties

    Black and white are classic and our favorite to photograph, but don't be afraid to bring colorful ones as well. Some more options would be:

    1. Bodysuits

    2. Garder Belts

    3. Stay Ups

    4. Corsets / Bustier

    5. Baby Dolls


    Significant Other Items

    This is a fantastic way to personalize your shoot! Sneak out with one of his/her favorite things, and they're going to be pleasantly surprised when they see you sexing it up in your photos. Some examples:

    1. Favorite tie

    2. Dress shirt (Plain Colored, ie. White, Black, etc)

    3. Sports jersey

    4. Baseball cap, or any other wearable.


    The Importance of Shoes

    Wearing heels lengthens you, straightens the look of your legs, and overall makes you look and feel sexier. Things to consider:

    1. Bring more than one pair

    2. Be sure the shoes you bring match with your outfits

    3. The soles of your shoes needs to be clean (no tags, stickers, labels or dirt)

    4. Keep in mind that 2 inch heels are not high heels!


    Lingerie isn't the only thing you could bring

    Lingerie is sexy, but sometimes a soft sweater, an oversized shirt or a tight T will look even better!

  2. DIET & SLEEP – One week before your shoot, cut out as much sugar, carbs and processed foods as possible. Your skin will thank you, as well as keep you from looking bloated and puffy. Get as much sleep as you can the night before and eat something light the day of your shoot.
