So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and book a boudoir session with Jess Jones Boudoir. Congrats, girl! We can’t wait to help you feel confident, sexy, and beautiful. And while you might have already spent hours scrolling through Instagram, Pinterest, and online lingerie stores for the perfect outfits and poses, there are a few details that you might be overlooking. We know, we know, who has time for those when there are so many more exciting things to plan and do? But trust us, paying attention to these small things can make a big difference in your final boudoir photos. So, let’s dive in and make sure you’re fully prepared to rock your session.
First things first, let’s talk about your nails. Yes, your nails. You might be thinking, who cares about my nails when I’ll be mostly naked? But here’s the thing: your hands and fingers will also be in the photos, and chipped, unkempt nails can be distracting. We’re not saying you need to go all out and get a full manicure (although, if that makes you feel pampered and fabulous, go for it!), but at the very least, make sure your nails are clean and trimmed. Classic or neutral colors are also best, as they won’t clash with your outfits or steal the spotlight. Pro tip: if you’re not great at painting your nails, try press-on nails or nail wraps for an easy and affordable solution.
Next up, let’s organize your outfits. We know you’ve probably already picked out a few pieces that you love, but have you thought about the order and flow of your session? We’ll be moving from one outfit to another, and having to dig through your bag or closet for the next piece can slow us down and make you feel rushed. So, take some time to plan out your outfits in advance, in the order you want to wear them. You can also bring a few extra options, in case we have time and want to switch things up. And don’t forget to include accessories, like jewelry, stockings, and shoes, to complete your looks.
Now, let’s talk hair. We’re not expecting you to show up with a professional blowout (although, again, if that’s your thing, go for it!), but we do recommend washing and blow-drying your hair before your session. This will give it some volume and body, without being too styled or complicated. If your hair tends to be frizzy or limp, you can also apply a lightweight hair oil or serum to give it some shine and smoothness. And if you want to switch up your hair between outfits, you can bring some hair ties, bobby pins, and a travel-sized hairspray to touch up any flyaways or loose strands.
Last but not least, let’s talk skincare. We want you to feel confident and radiant in your boudoir photos, so taking proper care of your skin is important. In the week leading up to your session, try to avoid any harsh or new skincare products that could cause redness or breakouts. Stick to your usual routine, and make sure to moisturize your face and body every day. On the day of your session, arrive with a clean and moisturized face, and avoid heavy makeup or skincare products that could clog your pores or cause irritation. We can always add some subtle makeup touches for a flawless finish.:
And there you have it, ladies! Our top tips for not overlooking the details when preparing for your Jess Jones boudoir session. Remember, these small things can make a big difference in your final photos, and we want you to feel confident and beautiful every step of the way. So, take some time to pamper yourself, get organized, and show up ready to shine. We’ll handle the rest!
