Five to seven Days Before Your Shoot…

  • Looking good makes you feel good - get your body beauty needs taken care of:
    • If you wax, do so a 4 days before your shoot to avoid any bumpiness or redness.
    • Make sure your eyebrows are nicely shaped and groomed.
    • Get your hair cut/ colored atleast 7 days before your session - this way there is no color on your skin and your hair isn't too "fresh"
    • Be sure to get a salon manicure and pedicure for a flawless finish - we recommend colors that fir your overall look (Check out this blog post for ideas!) 
  • Stay out of the sun – while a base tan will be nice in photos, red, blotchy skin will not.
  • See a PRO for your tanning needs - hand applied airbrush tans look the most natural
  • Drink plenty of water for luminous skin - don't forget to moisturize your skin!
  • Lower your salt intake and avoid alcohol if you’re worried about retaining water.
  • Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly; remove all tags and labels. Steam or iron your ensembles and hang them properly so they keep their shape as you travel to the studio.

The Day Before Your Shoot…

  • Bathe, shave and moisturize.
  • Remove ALL price tags, size & care labels, etc. from clothing, especially from lingerie and panties. Nothing can ruin a great photo like an awkward tag on the booty!
  • Double-check everything is properly packed and ready for the shoot: heels, jewelry, accessories, props. (Organizing with ziplock bags works great!)
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to get to the studio without stressing. Check weather and traffic reports to ensure you have allotted enough time for unexpected delays.
  • Enjoy a relaxed, quiet evening.
  • Plan for a good night’s sleep – eight hours is ideal.

The Day of Your Shoot…

  • Arrive with a clean and moisturized face and CLEAN HAIR (important!).
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your session to avoid red marks on your skin (no jeans, tight socks or tight clothing, for instance).
  • Eat something light but filling before you leave the house.
  • Have your final Blush Session payment ready (check, credit card, or cash).
  • Most important: Take a deep breath and RELAX. It’s completely normal to be a wee bit nervous before your shoot, but please don’t worry because you will be in very good hands. We will show you exactly how to pose and work with you to get the perfect shot.

Here are some fun and funny tips that you might have not thought about:

  • Clear Deodorant - yea, genius huh?
  • Bring more than you think you'll want - we can always go through the outfits together
