But, it’s not just about the external preparations, your inner glow is just as important. Its important that you feel amazing on the inside so you radiate on the outside. These are some good tips for life as well as boudoir! First and most important is hydration. In the days leading up to your boudoir photo session, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. It’s important in maintaining radiant skin and hair as well as leaving you feeling refreshed and vibrant. Drinking plenty of water also helps your liver and kidneys filter out toxins in your body and improves your overall wellbeing!

Up next, you guessed it. Sleep. In the couple days leading up to your shoot, it is important to prioritize a good night’s rest (or day’s rest if you’re a 3rd shifter). Think about it as your natural battery charger which will help you wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready to conquer the world. It’s important to establish a calming bedtime routine, indulge in relaxation techniques and to create a peaceful environment that promotes restful sleep. Now lets talk about fueling your body.

Prioritizing a diet that is healthy and balanced is important not just for your boudoir session, but also for your life! Regarding your photoshoot, it’s important to avoid foods that make you feel lethargic and bloated (for me its dairy). Its important to know and understand your dietary triggers so on the day of your shoot you feel energized and comfortable. Regarding life, a balanced diet with all the good things in moderation is essential to feeling good all day, every day.
