You are here because you took the plunge. You're officially scheduled to do your boudoir shoot with me, Krystie Lee! I am so stoked for the badass time we are going to have together during your shoot. Even though its an exciting day it will also make you a bit nervous, BUT I guarantee you, you will see any nervousness you might have quickly fade away within the first couple of clicks from my camera. Here's a little information and tips of what to expect with your boudoir shoot with me as your photographer.
At the beginning of your session, we will look at any props you or i brought and discuss all of your wishes for this shoot. After that, you will get changed in a seperate room and we will start all the fun! We will obviously do several outfit changes depending on your package. The studio of your choosing will have a nice temperature and be super cozy for you to get nakey! ;) I will be your posing guide, personal hype lady, and constantly make sure you look ON POINT the whole time!
After your shoot, I will literally go out of my way to get you some sneak peaks as you wait for me to finish my editing process, i spend lot of time on your photos, making sure everything is perfect and your skin looks flawless.
So you booked your shoot, now what do you do to prepare yourself?! One thing you DON'T need to do is stress. Seriously, it'll cause wrinkles... DO. NOT. Stress. Ive got you covered!
Once your booked, i will help you with everything to prepare for your day with me! I am here for you 24/7. Text, Call, Email. I don't care!
I'm here to make sure you stay excited and ready.
But in the meantime, here are a few helpful tips that are a MUST!
- Wear LOOSE fitting clothes to the studio to avoid marks on your skin from tight fabrics. (i.e Jeans, Tight Bras)
- Use CLEAR deodorant instead of white if you can.
- IF you decide you want to get a wax before your shoot, schedule your wax at LEAST a week before your shoot to avoid bumps and redness.
- Don't fast! I know you want to stay "slim" before your shoot but really, it'll make you feel/look worse. Eat something light but DO NOT STARVE.
- Drinks LOTS of water, and take a shot of tequila to ease your nerves if you want ;) But definitely drink lots of water the morning of your shoot to keep your healthy glow.
- STRETCH! Seriously, you will regret it and feel like you got hit by a bus if you do not stretch before your shoot. I will literally be making you bend in all kinds of ways you wouldn't even imagine you being able to do. So stretching is a MUST!
What the F%CK Do i wear?
Helping clients choose their outfits is one of my favorite parts! The options are seriously ENDLESS! I love jewel tones and neutral colors (white, black, cream, navy etc) best but have even had some ladies bring a few colorful pieces that were lots of fun! You can also incorporate some of your own personal style/hobbies into your session and I'll do my best to work with whatever you bring with you. Below is a list of my favorite shops for lingerie!
92% of the time I refer my clients to Amazon because of the fast shipping, reviews on each product, and it’s all around cheaper when looking for lingerie.

How long will my session last?
Your session (if not a mini) will be about 2 hours long-that includes makeup and hair time if chosen. I've found that this time limit is perfect for choosing outfits, changing and getting just enough variety of outfits, poses and set ups for you to have plenty of images to choose from!
Should I wax or spray tan?
When it comes to waxing and spray tans, I always encourage clients to only do something they are used to doing. If you get waxed regularly and know how your body will react, go for it! If not, I suggest avoiding it. We dont get super upclose and personal in those areas usually and most stray hairs can be edited out. However, super red rashes and/or burns cannot be retouched very easily and could make for not so pleasant posing for you as well. When it comes to spray tans, I recommend NOT using a booth or self tanner. Always use a technician that hand sprays you and that is highly recommended.
I don’t know how to pose! Will you help me?
One of the most frequently asked questions is "I don't know how to pose! Will you help me?" and the answer is YES! I pose my clients 100% the entire time, seriously from your hair to your toes. It will not be left up to you to figure out how to pose. I pride myself in having done lots of research and lots of practice with posing any and all body types. I know what angles and poses will look best.. That's what I'm here for!
Should I bring anything?
What should you bring with you to your session besides outfits (if you choose to bring your own).. Well, you aren't required to bring anything at all but if you want to make your session more personal here are some options to consider.
-Shoes, jewelry, Brides may bring shoes, jewelry or veil, or anything personal to you or that fits your personality well. I have many women bring a mens button up shirt or jersey. You may also consider hobbies such as guitar, work out equipment etc!
Most of all, RELAX! You're in good hands! I hope this guide
