Cincinnati Boudoir photographer and Boudoir instructor serving the United States
DIRTY GIRL BOUDOIR DOES NOT PROVIDE LINGERIE. We do have a lingerie boutique if you would like to schedule a time to shop! Just contact us and we will get you in to help you choose the best lingerie for you!
Here at Dirty Girl Boudoir we try and make you feel as comfortable as possible. We have a beautiful space filled with gorgeous light, props and beautiful sets to make your photos look elegant and beautiful.
If you purchased the hair and makeup session you will be taken into our beautiful hair and makeup room to begin your glamour transformation with one of our talented artists. Please expect to be in hair and makeup for an hour to an hour and a half. Once your hair / makeup is complete, I will help you choose your wardrobe for each set and only pick what I feel will look amazing on you and in your photos!
Here at Dirty Girl Boudoir we take all of the guessing out of your session. You will be posed and directed every step of the way so you don’t have to worry about not knowing what you are doing, we do so you are in AMAZING hands! Your session will last an hour unless you have arranged for added time.
After the session you will come back to your scheduled reveal session where I will help you in choosing what products / prints would work best for you. Once the selections have been made and payment processed I will then send your order off to one of our high quality labs which will create a stunning end product you are sure to love. I will have the products shipped directly to your door for added convenience. Just remember, payment is due at your reveal session so please come prepared! We can’t wait to start this journey of self love with you and you are going to look AMAZING!
Make sure you do not have swimsuit tan lines.
Exfoliate your face and body.
Consider how your fingernails and toenails look. It’s not necessary to get a manicure or a pedicure, but make sure everything is neat and clean. A clear polish will only add to your photos.
Get your eyebrows done.
Shave/wax~ you’ll want to do it at least 6 hours before your session.
Stay away from the sun in the days before your session. While a sun-kissed look is often pleasing, it won’t be in your photos. Notes on spray tanning~ If you have never spray tanned before, or experience uneven results, please do a trial run before your session. I do retouch your portraits, although sunburn and skin blending is time consuming and will incur an additional fee.
Cut tags from see through lingerie.
Arrive with clean and moisturized skin. No makeup please if you purchase the session with hair and makeup service.
Brush your lips with a toothbrush to remove dry skin.
Lather up with body lotion.
Wear loose clothing the day of your session. Tight – or even form-fitting – clothing will leave marks on your body, and we want your skin to be as smooth and flawless as possible. If you’re comfortable doing so, go without underclothes; this little secret of yours might even help you get into a sexy mindset.
Drink plenty of water the day of and in the days before your session. This will ensure that your skin is hydrated, which will also make sure your makeup goes on more smoothly and your skin has a healthy glow. You might even consider exfoliating (gently!) a few days prior to your session and moisturize before getting dressed on the day of.
Be sure to eat before your session. Not a huge meal, but the session will take a while and you’ll need your energy to hold some of those fantastic poses, so eat at least a light meal. And feel free to bring snacks with you (that won’t mess with your makeup).
If you use a white deodorant, eliminate it the day of your session! Your clothes and your skin will remain the colors they should be.
Your sexy outfits. A black bra and panty set is always classic.
Panty hose, thigh highs, fishnets, knee or thigh high socks
Satin robe, over-sized sweaters and t-shirts or a mens button up shirt is always a fun choice!
Accessories: Jewelry (pearls are always good), something of his, your wedding veil or anything you would like to wear!
Shoes: A variety of shoes, stilettos are my first pick. See our PINTEREST BOARD for suggestions.
