Bad Tan Lines/Sunburn – If you have not been tanning recently, don’t tan just before your session. You can get sunburn or really bad tan lines, which are not flattering in photos. Also avoid spray tans at all cost, as they tend to photograph poorly.
Getting intoxicated before your session – If you are nervous about your session, it’s OK to have a glass of wine or two to rest your nerves. That said, don’t get intoxicated before your session. This is one of the worst things you can do. Your eyes will be blood shot and droopy and it’s just a recipe for disaster.
Choosing the wrong sized outfits – Choose lingerie that is just the right size for you. You don’t want loose lingerie that gives your body no shape or hides your beautiful curves. On the other hand, lingerie that is too tight can be unflattering.
Heavy Makeup – You don’t want to slather the makeup on too thickly. It’s more about accentuating your natural features and making you feel – and look – stunning. Try to avoid glitter and oil base makeup. Consider having your makeup professionally done. Most makeup artists are familiar with the type of makeup that is most appealing on camera.
Forgetting to shave/wax – Always remember to shave or wax any exposed area that needs to looks smooth and sexy. The ‘au naturel’ look is so ‘70s. Unless you’re going for that vibe.
