Boudoir Bootcamp: The Day of Your Session

Dear Michiana Boudoir Client,
I hope this email finds you in excellent spirits and of course excited about your future Session with Michiana Boudoir! Today’s email is all about what you can expect on the day of your photo shoot. First, we’ll show you to your stylist for hair and makeup. Our pro artist will chat with you about the exact look you’re wanting. If you want to leave it 100% up to the artist, that’s fine by us, whatever you love best. If you’re worried about your look, during the hair/makeup process our pro artists will ask you how you’re liking things along the way. They’ll make sure it’s not too dramatic or not too natural depending on the look you’re going for. We can always change things along the way and we promise when we’re done you’ll love the look.
Next, we’ll decide on wardrobe. You may bring your own lingerie or borrow from the Michiana Boudoir Client Closet. Don’t worry if you bring too much, I can help you narrow them down if need be. In addition I’ll also help you with any wardrobe questions and let you add any accessories or high heels from our collection as well. We’ll ask you which outfit you’re the most comfortable in, that’s the outfit we’ll start with. We want to make sure you’re comfortable 100% of the time you’re at our studio. The most important thing to know is that you should not be worrying about posing or facial expressions at all! That’s our job and we know just how to coach you through it in a super easy way.
We’ll start off with the simplest pose and coach you on exactly where to look, how to smile, etc. You’ll never wonder, “where should my hand be, does my face look good, or am I doing this right?” We’re super clear on exactly what to do and we’re watching you closely to get the best possible photos.
We always end the Session with what we fondly call the “nakey” shots. The nakey shots are just what they sound like, you’re naked. We use a pretty blanket to hide what you want to and show what you want to. In the end, the photos aren’t any more revealing than the lingerie images. These images really showcase you in a natural state and are often the favorites.
