Prepping For Your Boudoir Session

Being so vulnerable in front of a camera might be easy for some, but for others it can take a lot of mental prep. Booking your Columbia, SC boudoir session might not even be your “fix all” journey to total self love and full body empowerment but I know it’s something all bodies deserve and a step in the right direction. While preparing for your boudoir session, I often suggest to my Jessica Hunt boudoir clients before their session that they participate in a couple of steps to get mentally ready:

  1. Photograph yourself intimately or nude prior to our session together. This can help to normalize the way your body looks to you and to get used to having a camera around when you have less than everything on!

  2. Have an inner self talk about how wonderful, radiant, and confident you are! Getting your heart and mind ready for a Columbia, SC boudoir portrait session is one of the most important steps you can take in preparing for your boudoir experience.

  3. Fuel your amazing and powerful body with water and foods that make you feel comfortable and healthy! Even going as far as stretching and loosening up your body is a good way to prep!

Now that we’ve prepared our minds for our Columbia, SC boudoir session, It’s time to put on something sexy! It’s time to possibly purchase a few intimate outfits that you absolutely adore and feel incredible in. And if you decide not to buy any new items, the Jessica Hunt boudoir closet has your back! You are SO welcome to bring a couple different outfits to change into throughout your time at the Jessica Hunt boudoir studio and even pick out something you love from the closet offered here!

Your Boudoir Beauty Prep

Why yes, we have your beauty vendors right here at the studio! Our lovely Antonia Scott Beauty is always here to help you get into your boudoir glam. After you’ve decided on your outfits and prepared for your boudoir session, you’ll hop right into your beauty vendors seat at the Jessica Hunt boudoir studio. Here’s some tips straight from Antonia to help you prepare for your boudoir beauty prep:

  • You’ll want to arrive with clean, makeup free skin. Antonia will prep your skin properly with professional grade products before we get started on your makeup application!

  • Ditch the Bra! The morning of your session, we always suggest you wear comfy, loose fitting clothing to the studio t avoid any lines and indentations in your skin.

  • While hair removal is a completely optional and personal choice, if you are opting for professional hair removal prior to your boudoir session like waxing, threading or sugaring- please do so 3-7 days prior to your session. This will give ample time for any redness to subside. If you are shaving at home, do so at least 24 hours before! Having your eyebrows professionally waxed or threaded is a great way to help frame your eyes in photos. Removing those stray hairs also helps your eyeshadow blend seamlessly!

  • Gone are the days of “dirty hair holds better!” Hair should be clean and dry! Unless you are wearing your hair in its natural state for your boudoir session, please ensure that your hair is clean and 100% dry when you arrive to the studio!  If you have fine hair, pin straight hair, or hair that just doesn’t hold a curl- Antonia will utilize professional products to help add grit, texture and hold to your hair.

  • Treat yourself to a fresh mani/pedi! Your hands will be in nearly every photo, and your nails are an important detail that can easily be forgotten about! Treat yourself to a fresh manicure or a DIY mani at home.

  • Drink lots of water in the weeks leading up to your session! Being hydrated helps aid in glowing skin!

Your boudoir beauty vendor has you covered and is going to make sure you look your absolute best for your boudoir photographs.
