I am Miranda, your female NYC boudoir photographer, and I understand how nerve-racking booking a boudoir session is! I guarantee before the end of your photo shoot you're going to feel as empowered as Beyonce and so happy you treated yourself to an incredible time!
My end goal is to make sure you're prepared and you feel comfortable and confident - with the help of champagne, irresistible music you have to dance to, and my bubbly energy - I am guaranteed you're going to feel like you belong in a Victoria's Secret ad!
Let's start with discovering your desires
Plan at least 3 lingerie outfits
-Ideas: boudoir robe, pair of heels, jewelry, your partner's button up, thigh high stockings and a garter belt
Make a playlist of songs that make you feel like the main character
Avoid tan lines as it's difficult to edit
If you booked a collection with a hotel night stay, pack your overnight bag and invite a guest to come stay with you one hour after shoot
Rapid COVID test w/ negative results
Treat yourself to a mani-pedi
Snip off all garment tags
Don't wear anything tight as it will leave indents in the skin
Allow 2 hours for makeup and at least 1 hour for hair. (my faves here)
Hair is best worn down, volumized and curled. Makeup should have eye liner, lashes, and a professional contour. No sunscreen in the foundation products.
Arrive at least 15 minutes early
Please do not bring a guests with you without photographer's approval
If you feel uncomfortable during the session, please speak up
If final glam look isn't making you feel pretty, please speak up and request a redo
Do not apply self tanner - only hire trusted beauty services (my faves here)
