Looking for timeless holiday gift ideas? This is the perfect time to give “the gift of photos” to your friends and family. Get sentimental this year with personalized presents from your photo session! We offer a wide selection of products. Check out these ideas:
Bad Tan Lines/Sunburn – If you have not been tanning recently, don’t tan just before your session. You can get sunburn or really bad tan lines, which are not flattering in photos. Also avoid spray tans right before your session, especially if you are not familiar with how the formula takes to your skin. Most won’t develop until a good 24 hours after anyway.
Getting drunk at your session – If you are nervous about your session, it’s OK to have a glass of wine to rest your nerves. We provide a single serving usually if you’d like to unwind a bit, and you’re welcome to bring your own! But that said, don’t get wasted before or during your session. This is one of the worst things you can do. Your eyes will be bloodshot and droopy and it’s just a recipe for disaster.
Choosing the wrong sized outfits – Choose lingerie that is just the right size for you. You don’t want loose lingerie that gives your body no shape or hides your beautiful curves. On the other hand, lingerie that is too tight can be extremely unflattering.
Heavy Makeup – This is an area you don’t typically have to worry about unless you prefer to do your own hair and makeup since it’s included in your boudoir package. If you decide to apply your own makeup, you don’t want to slather it on too thickly. It’s more about accentuating your natural features and making you feel – and look – stunning. You also don’t want to go completely makeup free either. You can opt for minimal makeup but you do want to focus on contouring your facial structure.
Forgetting to shave/wax – Always remember to shave or wax any exposed area that needs to looks smooth and sexy. Consider using a medicated anti-bump cream after shaving certain lady-parts!
We offer plenty of additional advice throughout our blogs, but especially related to this article you can check out: Why we work with a Makeup Artist
We are often asked why we use MakeUp Artists, and how they can really benefit your boudoir session. There are many reasons why we choose to work with a MakeUp Artist. We want to make you feel like a Kishel glamour model! Using one of our skilled artists adds a special element that you don’t get every day. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a little pampering?
Most importantly, they also help you look your best! Even though we’re sure you do an excellent job with your makeup on an everyday basis, when it comes to photo shoots, you have to apply your makeup a little differently to make your best features really pop on film. You may not put on enough makeup normally to please the camera, but may put it on too heavy when trying to get it right for your session.
We choose to hire a professional so you don’t have to worry about it! Part of the Kishel experience is to allow you to be as stress-free as possbile. We want you to just sit back and let them work their magic. They’ve done this a million times before and know what looks best on camera. Cameras are very technologically advanced and pick up everything. Even things that may not be noticeable to the naked eye. Our skilled MakeUp Artists know what to look for, what to enhance, and what to cover.
MakeUp Artists also know which shimmery shadows will photograph weird and what colors to avoid for photos. Some things that look good in person tend to look strange on camera. They know what eyeliner to use to make your eyes pop instead of hiding them in shadows, and they’ve got the 4-1-1 on photography makeup. I prefer to leave this matter in the hands of the professionals. This service is included with all our packages!
