We have been asked to describe how a typical photo session develops during the course of a shoot. All shoots are different, but we’ll try our best to describe how events unfold for those who are curious about this.
When you arrive we offer you tea or coffee to help you relax. We then go upstairs to the bedroom setting where the lights, etc, are already set up in advance. You unpack the clothes and lingerie that you’ve brought, and together we decide which outfits you’re going to wear during the shoot. Having chosen four or five sets of lingerie and accessories, the photographer then leaves the room to give you privacy to change into the first set of clothing. We always offer the option for you to start fully dressed, and gradually work down to your underwear. For this we recommend something easily removed like a suit, blouse and skirt, or button through/wrap-over dress to avoid pulling it over your head and perhaps spoiling your make-up or hair. Starting fully dressed also gives you the chance to conquer any nerves, get used to being in front of the camera, and gives your photos even more variety.
Some women worry about posing, but there’s no need for you to be worried, because we’ve done this hundreds of times and we know which poses work best. You will be gently and patiently guided through a range of poses designed to make the most of your best features. If you have any ideas you particularly want to try, please tell us. We are here to help you get the best from your session.
So, starting from fully dressed we work through a range of teasing and, ‘naughty but nice poses,’ gradually undressing. For instance, wearing a blouse, you may open a few buttons to show the lacy fabric of your bra, or simply cross your legs, revealing a careless but ‘unwitting,’ glimpse of stocking tops. By this time you’ll be concentrating so much on creating beautiful pictures that you’ll probably have forgotten how nervous you were just a short time ago. Being photographed in your lingerie will feel like the most natural thing in the world.
For those who take it to the next stage and wish to add some topless photos to the mix, let us assure you that it is all done on a very gradual basis, giving you plenty of time to get used to the idea. We want you to be happy and comfortable at all stages, and we’ve found that this approach is best for the majority of our clients. If you have any further questions on this topic, please don’t be afraid to ask.
