Preparing For Your Shoot

Now that you’ve booked your Boudoir session, here are some useful tips to follow that will make your experience and photos the best they can be!

One Month Before Your Session

Inspiration

It is never too early to start planning for your Boudoir session, and this planning should be a fun part of the process!  Think about what kinds of outfits you’d like to wear and get them together.

  • We do have an extensive lingerie and boudoir props wardrobe at the studio, but you’re welcome to find clothing, sexy heels, accessories and props to use in your shoot
  • Order your outfits and accessories way early for your shoot
  • If you are using hair extensions, order them now
  • If your shoot is of a pinup or Hollywood style nature, shop for your size and order your outfits ahead of time
  • Lingerie is nice and definitely sexy, but sometimes a tight t-shirt, soft sweater or over-sized button-down shirt can be even sexier
  • Using something meaningful to your significant other is a great way to personalize your shoot: A favorite tie or button-down shirt or Sports fan jerseys, hats and gear!
  • Visit our Pinterest page @christinawehbe for inspiration and ideas we collected for you
  • Feel free to send me your inspiration photos to my email before the shoot christina@christinawehbe.com

Two Days Before the Shoot

Ladies, it’s time to pamper yourself!

  • If you wax, do two days before your shoot
  • Make sure your eyebrows are nicely shaped and groomed
  • If you’re planning on getting a haircut or color, give yourself a few days to make sure you are happy with it
  • We highly recommend a salon manicure and pedicure for a flawless finish
  • Stay out of the sun – while a base tan will be nice in photo’s, red skin will not
  • PLEASE – NO SPRAY TAN
  • Drink plenty of water for luminous skin
  • Watch your salt intake if you’re worried about retaining water
  • Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly; remove all tags and labels with scissors

The Day Before

Relax and Be Ready

  • Shave and moisturize
  • Double-check everything you will be bringing the night before and make sure that you leave plenty of time to get to the studio without stressing – lingerie, accessories, special bras, heels, hair extensions and props
  • Have a nice and relaxing evening with no stress and try not to have more than one drink
  • Get a good night’s sleep – Seven to eight hours is great

The Day of your Photo Shoot

Get ready for a wonderful experience

  • To avoid marks on the wardrobe Use clear deodorant or none
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your session to avoid red marks on your skin (no jeans, tight bra straps, tight socks or tight clothing), we do have robes at the studio for you 🙂
  • Eat something light but filling before you leave the house, protein bars are a good idea
  • Come with clean dry hair and a clean face
  • Have your final Boudoir Session payment ready (check, Chase QuickPay, or cash)
  • Stretch, maybe yoga, walk on the beach, the aim is to RELAX – it is completely normal to be nervous, but don’t worry because you are in very good hands.  Our hair stylists and make-up artists are the best in Laguna beach and orange county, and they will make you look amazing.  Your photographer Christina has several years of experience, and she knows exactly how to coach you, pose you and make you comfortable throughout the shoot.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most clients – enjoy it!

Transformational Portraits :: What is a Makeover? What does it look and feel like?

Transformational Portraits :: What is a Makeover? What does it look and feel like?

Have you ever went through a transformation in your life? It’s letting go of an old mindset or look and embracing a new one that represents who you really are. I went through many transformations in my life. When I was a teenager I went through my first transformation that wasn’t guided or informed, and nowadays I still experience transformational experiences that change my life and makes me see and get to know who I am better.

A transformational experience is a very conscious thing to go through. At our photography studio in Laguna Beach Orange County in California, we help our clients shed their old image off and embrace who they are today, who they are becoming and show them the best version of who they are. Sometimes my clients need their photos for personal branding, sometimes they need it to create a legacy album for themselves and their families, sometimes they just need a headshot and since all of our portrait photography studio experience include hair and makeup styling, our clients always opt to have some portraits done and they absolutely love the experience.

We start with the consultation. Our consultation is an informative session. We show you what the experience is like, we get you comfortable with the studio. Most of our clients are normal people like you and me and not celebrities who are used to having their celebrity portrait done on regular bases, now that I’m thinking I can surely say that most of my clients haven’t been in front of a professional photographer in the last 10-20 years.

Sometimes my clients opt to have a celebrity style experience, it’s what we call a Vanity Fair Magazine style experience, where all of their portraits are photos that are over the board, props, makeup, dramatic sets, and poses, or sometimes they opt to have character portraits done, and that’s what they get. I personally always advise my clients to have a multi-genre portrait session. In the multi-genre session, we start with the headshots, then we move to portraits then we do one boudoir set, then I create a piece of art of them out of one set, this is the photographs that turn heads when they frame it and enlarge it on a metal print or big canvas in their homes, this is what I call their personal MonaLisa 🙂

 

 

 

A transformational portrait session isn’t about the hair and makeup styling, or about the dress or wardrobe or props, it’s about your attitude and your new you that you are ready to embrace and show off to the world. It’s about owning your powers and #OwnYourFemininity and loving who you are becoming and growing into. We often change and transform in our lives and It is fantastic to have memories of the transformation every 3-5 years. My personal transformation takes place every two years, I grow out of my old Christina Wehbe and I embrace what I’ve learned and became in the past two years and I own it. Owning your femininity and knowing the effect of your transformation is a powerful thing to know about ourselves.
