Curvy Woman Boudoir or Glamour Photo Sessions
Most clients are uneasy when it comes to their body image and, as a result, their boudoir/glamour session. Very rarely do we have someone who is completely comfortable in her body. We especially get a lot of questions from women who are curvy, inquiring about how their session will work.
We’re here to answer your questions. And FYI, curvy boudoir/glamour sessions work the same as any other boudoir session! We are here to make you look and feel sexy no matter your size. Be proud of your curves!
If you need help picking out flattering clothing options, I can help with that. Once you get here, relax and let me be in charge of posing you to make you look your best. Different body types require different types of poses to accentuate your best features. It’s my job to know the right angles and poses to help you to look your best.
It is not about how much skin you show; it is all about your confidence.
How to Prepare for Your Photo Session
When having your portrait taken, there are areas where a little advanced preparation can make a huge difference. If you neglect them, an otherwise perfect photo could end up with distracting elements.
Starting a least a week before your shoot, decide on outfits, choose which beautification steps you will take, and schedule the appointments (even if they’re just with yourself). Remember, these are tips for preparing for your shoot but definitely not required, or necessary for everybody. Just choose what fits your budget, lifestyle, and current beauty regimen, and go from there!
– Face –
Exfoliate. A nice, soothing session using a grainy scrub (or gently rubbing your skin with a washcloth) on your face and body is an indulgent way to spend an evening. It is best to exfoliate a couple of times before your appointment, but be sure to allow a few days between ‘treatments’, as well as a couple of days after the last one before your shoot.
Get a Facial. If you want to go into pampering mode, be sure to do your facial at least a week before your shoot. Since facials tend to cause redness, a week usually allows enough time to heal.
Wax Eyebrows. If you decide to have your eyebrows waxed or threaded, be sure to schedule the appointment for at least a few days before your photo shoot. Otherwise, an eyebrow trim/touch up at home could be done a day or two before the shoot.
I highly recommend treating yourself and get all these things done by an aesthetician. All you have to do is lay back and enjoy the truly relaxing experience.
I have a great person to recommend- Jenny Haugen at Vitality Skin Care. She’s the best. https://www.vitalityskin.org.
Ruth booked a Desire Portrait session with me to give to her husband an album of her beautiful photos on their anniversary. From the beginning I praised her for taking the step to book this session. I hear so many women say “I have always wanted to do a session like this but…….” and then comes the excuses. They will say, I’m too fat, need to lose 10 lbs or more, too old, I’m not sexy etc. etc. None of these things matter. All women are beautiful and a session like this should be on every woman’s bucket list, no matter what. These sessions a styled specific to you and what You are wanting and fits our comfort level. You get professional hair and makeup and I will guide you with posing and lighting that will reveal your inner and outer beauty. So yes, I praised Ruth for braving these excuses and fears and did this for her husband but I have to say every women I have photographed have had an amazing experience. I can’t tell you how exhilarating it is for me to see how these women blossom and become a beautiful powerful woman before my eyes. Whew! I love it!
