      Not long till your shoot do you have everything all together?
      OMG wednesday is coming round sooooo quick!! I think I'm as sorted as I'm ever going to be...but that's not necessarily as sorted as I should be! just panicking I think....I'll be glad when I've done it and I can forget about it. I've spent so long stressing about this - I'll love it, i know that, but I will be relieved when it's over.

      • Have your eyebrows waxed or tweezed a few days prior to your session to avoid red skin and puffiness (same for the bikini area)
      • Moisturize your skin the morning of your session. Don't use self tanners or body oil at that time since those can damage or discolor your lingerie or the photographers furniture and fabrics.
      • Tell your photographer what you like best about yourself and if there is an area about yourself that you'd like to minimize.
      • Have your hair and makeup professionally done.
      • Don't party the night before your session.
      • Don't wear tight fitting clothes to your session. Lines even from socks around your ankles can take hours to disappear.
      • Don't get a sunburn before your session. Tan lines will show. If you've never visited a tanning booth or used a self-tanning lotion, try it once before doing it for the first time before your session.
      • Bring some of your own music for the photographer to play during your session.
      • Have Fun feeling Sexy, sweet, playful, sultry and beautiful!

        Katie, just relax - you're going to look amazing & have a fabulous time!! Come back & tell us how it goes! :)

        btw, girls, I didn't end up wearing any jewelry except my e-ring & a pair of diamond earrings and I didn't use any props (except the furniture, beaded curtain, & mirror that she had there). The pics are great & I didn't feel like anything was missing when I looked at them w/ Jen (photog). So no stressing necessary to find the "right" props. :)
