The Do’s For Preparing for Your Boudoir Shoot

DO plan to get your facials or waxing done for the session, I recommend waxing at least three days before. The reason why is because this can cause redness and blotchiness.

DO cut all the tags in your outfit options. You do not want the tags to be visible in the photos. (Yes, it includes the laundry instructions!)

DO eat something light before the session. Do not eat anything that will make you bloat, such as too many carbs, carbonated drinks, etc.

DO bring a couple different outfit options! Black is always a great color option.

DO get your nails done! Chipped toes, and fingers will be noticed in photos!

The Dont’s For Your Boudoir Shoot

DO NOT wear tight clothing when coming to your boudoir session. This can cause marks on your skin. Instead, wear loose clothing like a sweatshirt or a loose shirt.

DO NOT wear hair ties on your wrist because this can also digs into your skin and cause marks. This is easy to forget, so just make sure to remind yourself before the day of the session!

Lastly, DO NOT be nervous, I promise – I got you (I know that can be easier said than done!) and just have fun! Let’s crank up the music, get some sexy ass pictures of you, and make it the best time of your life. Pamper yourself before the boudoir shoot – because you deserve a luxury treatment once in a while!

I had such an amazing experience! And my husband was pretty much speechless when he opened the book that was made with all the amazing pictures in it! And not to mention the whole boudoir experience was super empowering! Definitely felt amazing after! If your thinking if you should get pictures done just do it! You won't regret it!

"I can't even begin to explain how happy I am with this business. I walked into this shoot SO nervous and had no idea what to expect. From the time I walked through the door to the very end she made me feel so comfortable. Magan has the perfect mix of personality and professionalism while shooting. Safe to say I walked out feeling empowered and sexy. The whole experience was intimate and personal and couldn't have been better. The studio space is very clean and cute. I'm happy to say Magan is now a friend and inspiration to me and I can't wait to work with her again. I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family!"

Sometimes, it takes seeing yourself through the lens of someone else to really open your eyes.
After my boudoir shoot with Magan, I felt more confident in my own body and realized that sometimes what I see in the mirror is not what is actually there. I left that shoot loving my body more, just the way it is.
If you've ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot, NOW is the time and Magan is your girl!

Magan has mastered the art of making anyone and everyone feel welcome and like you’ve known each other for years. She sees things in such a unique way, she shows you the beautiful you that the world sees. She pulls emotion out of you, and makes you into a total goddess. I would recommend Magan to anyone and everyone considering getting a boudoir session or any session with her. Photos you want to stare at for hours and hang on your wall forever.
