Boudoir Prep Guide Matt Mathews boudoir

Pre-shoot preparation

YAY!!!! You're officially booked and on the calendar. We are just as excited as you about this special experience and we cant wait to show you how amazing and beautiful you really are. Here are a couple of helpful tips to help you better prepare for your session.


  • If you wax, please make sure to do so in this time frame to avoid red bumps.
  • Make sure your eyebrows are nicely groomed.
  • Be sure to get a manicure and pedicure for that beautifully polished finish.
  • Stay out of the sun... Editing red and blotchy skin out of your images is no fun and will result in a longer wait time for you.
  • For the love of God, DO NOT GET A SPRAY TAN!!!!!!!
  • Drink plenty of water for luminous skin glow.
  • Lower your salt intake, avoid lots of sugars and alcohol intake to avoid being bloated.
  • Try on your outfits to make sure they fit you properly.


  • Bathe, shave and moisturize.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Exfoliate your face and lips.
  • Double check and pack your bags.
  • Try and get a full 8 hours of sleep.
  • RELAX.


  • Use clear deodorant.
  • Please do not wear any makeup and have no products in your hair.
  • Wear loose fitted clothing to avoid lines and red marks. (No jeans, socks, etc.)
  • Eat something light but filling before you leave your home. (Yogurt, granola, oatmeal etc.)
  • Most important: Take a deep breath, RELAX, and get ready to feel beautiful.
  • You may bring one friend to your session but please NO CHILDREN IN THE STUDIO AT ANY TIME.
  • Please bring exact change for our makeup artist as she does not carry cash. You may also pay with credit card, Paypal or Vinmo. If you feel inclined to tip her please plan accordingly.*

**Please understand we sometimes shoot more than one session per day and coming unprepared to your session will require a rescheduled session with another session fee in place**
