HOW TO FEEL SEXY AND RELAXED WHILE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED
- Focus on having fun during your shoot- if your goal is to get great shots or you have never done anything like this before, you may feel more nervous or even overwhelmed. It is my job as your photographer to get great shots. The only thing you need to do is trust me, relax, follow directions and BREATHE!!! Enjoy being a woman and being pampered. If you are genuinely having a great time, you will have an extra sparkle in your eye and you will love your images so much more. If you are not relaxed, it will show in your images.
- Visualize- Visualize your shoot ahead of time. Don’t focus on your nerves or feeling awkward. Instead picture yourself having a good time, feeling relaxed and looking sexy. If you feel really stressed, please, please do not take any stress relieving drugs like Xanax before you shoot, if you can help it. You don’t want to have that spaced out look in your eyes, you want them to sparkle!!!!
- Show up and give it all you’ve got – If you want to feel sexy during your shoot, you’ve got to really be into the moment and open. Posing is my job. But posing is only half of it. Confidence will show up in your photos and you have to bring that. Even if you are just faking it. This will be easier if you trust the photographer that you are working with. Also, bringing a friend along to your shoot for moral support is also great. My photo sessions are tailored to your comfort level. You can show as little or as much skin as you would like.
- Remember the context- The sheer fact that you are willing to be in front of the camera being photographed is totally sexy! It’s powerful and vulnerable at the same time.
5. Be yourself- Honor who you are, in this moment. The time is now. You are sexy and beautiful just as you are
6. Arrive on time and Don’t make plans for right after your session- Leave your day open, make sure you baby sitter is available for more time than you need. Arriving late to your session makes sessions rushed and stressful. And if your session is running overtime, you do not want to be stressed about having to leave because you have made other plans. Your main goal is having fun, so put all other agendas on the back burner.
