GET READY WITH US
Everything you need to know before your Femme Fatale experience
What to wear
Grab a glass of wine, put on your feel-good playlist and create some looks you love.
Planning your outfits is a fun part of the experience. Whether you're splashing out on a shopping spree or raiding your wardrobe for forgotten treasures, your outfit options are endless. We suggest 3 - 5 outfit choices and your birthday suit!
Whether you want to keep it classic with a trusty matching set, channel your inner Britney with a school girl look, accentuate your killer curves or perhaps wear nothing at all, our team are here to put you at ease. If you're feeling a little nervous about revealing your body in front of the camera, be sure to pack an oversized shirt. Starting the session with a less revealing outfit is the perfect way to get into the swing of things. Jewellery is the perfect finishing touch, think about whether you would like to be wearing a necklace that has a significant meaning, statement earrings or perhaps no jewellery at all.

Normalise the nerves
A boudoir photo shoot is a big deal and it isn’t something you do every day. 95% of our clients have never stepped foot in a studio before, let alone take their clothes off and pose in front of a stranger. It's natural to feel nervous and we’re here every step of the way; full of tips, tricks and ideas to help you nail your shoot. 'Femme Fatale' means 'Lethal Woman' and this is why it's our premium service. We want you to walk out the doors with your head held high, feeling confident and empowered.
It's time to fall in love with yourself and inject some body confidence into your life.
HAIR AND MAKE UP
Have you thought about ideas for your hair and make up? When deciding on your make up, try to consider if you want your look to be natural, high fashion or vintage. Maybe a subtle change would work for you, such as a smokey eyeshadow, eyeliner or dark lips. With regards to hair, think about if you favour straight, wavy, or curly and if you would like it styled half-up or vintage for example. Perhaps you would like to arrive pre-styled and that's fine too!
PREPARE WITH A PAMPER
We have the hair and make up covered but it's the little things that go a long way towards making you feel like a queen!
Exfoliate and moisturise that skin, check your brows are on point and pop to the hairdressers. If a manicure is your thing, then be sure to get your nails done before your shoot, or simply check they’re clean and filed. If going au natural isn't your thing, then don't forget to shave, thinking about your legs, underarm and bikini area as well!
On the day of your shoot, please arrive at the studio with no make up on and your nails as you would like them. Arrive with clean, dry hair and if you require the application of lashes or extensions, please have them ready to apply. Do bear in mind that these are optional services and you will need to forfeit other parts of your makeover due to time restrictions.
CHOOSING YOUR ACCESSORIES
Have fun and get creative! We care about making every shoot unique and full of personality, which is why we ask you to bring items that mean something to you. The first thing that may come to your mind is your favourite jewellery, but there are so many more options to make your shoot unique. You can add some mystery with a mask and go all 50 shades with a whip or handcuffs. You may want to give your shoot a feminine touch with flowers or petals or incorporate your passion with a guitar. Alternatively, a simple scarf, shirt or fabric will do the trick. For a little more inspiration, why don't you browse our blog?
YOUR PRIVATE VIEW
Get the tissues ready... Time to see yourself as never before. You'll be invited into your own private viewing room to see your beautiful photographs for the first time. You'll view them all in a presentation slideshow that's sure to blow you away with dimmed lighting and music playing. Your image consultant will then help you select the ‘keepers’.
Don’t forget to bring some form of payment on the day, as you may want to purchase more images from your session. We can offer up to 10 months interest free credit and there is no obligation to spend and no hard sell – you're the boss!
