Boudoir Preparation - What to Bring on the Day!

Last Fall - I travelled to LA - and I was so proud of myself!

I actually managed to pack EVERYTHING into a tiny carry-on bag!

Not even a small suitcase - an actual bag!

Ok... I was only going for three days - but that included heels as well!

So I remained optimistic - and figured I could do exactly the same for my upcoming NYC trip

Who the heck was I kidding?! It's NEW YORK!!

I dragged out my beast of a case - its pink! - and started planning my outfits

I have an outfit for every day - and every night - and we all know I'm going to go shopping and find more 'needed' outfits!

Oh - and I think I just about have enough pair of shoes - approx one pair of each day!

And I'm not even kidding!

I'm not going for a month (hubby won't let me) - but a girl needs options!

Who knows what I'm going to feel like wearing that day?!

Same goes for you!!

A boudoir session is generally one hour

(ok - I usually get a little carried away - so a little over an hour!)

That's plenty of time for 3-4 outfit options

But please - bring TEN!!

Who knows what you're going to feel like wearing that day?!

We all know that an outfit we felt amazing in last week - isn't necessarily perfect this week!

Bring lots of options!

Here's a Boudoir Preparation Guide to assist you with other preparations that you need to consider for your shoot...



- nude is interpreted as one outfit*


- in case you would like to try an 'implied nude' look without actually being naked. 


- black and nude go with everything - but you are more than welcome to bring an array of colours and choices. 


- to keep your lips hydrated and/or glossy


- listening to your favourite songs can help relax you and put you in 'the' mood! 


- Jess has an array of foundations to suit all skin tones - but if you have allergies or would just rather use your own - you are more than welcome to bring it. 


- to wear during hair and makeup. 

But most of all - bring a POSITIVE ATTITUDE and a SMILE - and have a ton of FUN!!
