I often get asked to what extent I will retouch images. Also, the next followup question is that they have never posed before and will I be able to work with them. These are great questions so I created this blog article to show you examples of both.
Retouching can be quite aggressive or just a light touch. I always retouch anything that is considered non-permanent. This would include but not limited to acne and bruises. I will soften or remove cellulite when requested. My philosophy is to keep it as minimal as possible. I will not change your body shape, however if a bra strap is too tight then I will fix any bulges that result. This is where properly fitted clothes is essential.
Preparing for a session can help to minimize some concerns. Drink plenty of water at least a week before, avoid tan lines or get a professional tan spray the week before, and make sure items fit properly. I highly recommend seeing an Esthetician to discuss breakouts and dry skin. This can take several visits to really take care of your skin.
Remember that hair + makeup is provided at the studio before your boudoir session. I use amazing artists in the area that will discuss the look you desire.
When I mention my job I usually get a response like, “I could never do that, I don’t have the right body shape” or “I wouldn’t know how to pose”. Boudoir is for EVERYONE. You are posed from head to toe. I even hop on the couch and show you the pose. This usually gets us laughing because I am a dork. Below is an example of what an un-posed butt looks like and then the after. It is all in the arch for this image. If you cannot arch then I will show you how to get close to a similar pose by pushing with your knees.
