Your Prep Guide

There is no standard or official wardrobe for your session. Any outfit (or lack of it) should make you feel comfortable and beautiful. Whatever your choices, make sure the fit enhances your shape and the color compliments your skin tone.

Make sure your choices in clothes vary in texture and color. Bring back up clothes just in case. When in doubt... go for classic!

Shop your closet for the items you always choose when you want to feel and look your best. There is nothing sexier than what a woman feels best in.

Pick out lingerie that highlights your every lovely curves. BUT remember that sometimes a tight T-shirt, soft sweater or over-sized button-down shirt can be even sexier.

Please remember not to take any drastic image decisions prior to your session. These include and are not limited to new hair color, new hair cut, botox or collagen injections. If you want any of this done, please do so at least 15 days prior to your scheduled photo shoot. Also if you are going to the beach, remember to apply sun block generously, tan lines and burned skin don´t look good in pictures, and I will not photoshop them.
