pregnancy preparation

{Before Your Session}

  • Make sure you do not have swimsuit tan lines.

  • Cut all tags from see through lingerie.

  • Exfoliate your face and body.

  • 3 days before the shoot. Get a Facial, a manicure and a pedicure. I recommend FRENCH MANICURE. We will see your hands and feet clearly in photos. Also please get your eyebrows done.

  • Shave/wax~ you’ll want to do it at least 6 hours before your session.

  • Stay away from the sun in the days before your session. While a sun-kissed look is often pleasing, it won’t be in your photos. Notes on spray tanning~ If you have never spray tanned before, or experience uneven results, please do a trial run before your session.  I do retouch your portraits, although sunburn and skin blending is time consuming and will incur an additional fee.

{Day Of Session}

  • Arrive on time, with clean and moisturized skin. No makeup please.

  • Brush your lips with a toothbrush to remove dry skin.

  • Lather up with body lotion.

  • Wear loose clothing the day of your session. Tight clothing will leave marks on your body, and we want your skin to be as smooth and flawless as possible. 

  • Drink plenty of water the day of and in the days before your session. This ensures that your skin is hydrated that your makeup goes on more smoothly and your skin has a healthy glow. You might even consider exfoliating (gently!) a few days prior to your session and moisturize before getting dressed on the day of.

  • Be sure to eat before your session. We will provide sandwiches & refreshments for you, feel free to bring any other snacks with you.

  • If you use a white deodorant, eliminate it the day of your session! Your clothes and your skin will remain the colors they should be.

{Things to bring}

    • Pair of Jeans that u can still fit into (no need to zip up), evening dress body hugging & anything you look great in and wanna be photographed in.
