What to Bring
My shoots usually involve 3 - 5 looks from casual to intimate lingerie or nude, so it is good to bring some variety of outfits, especially if you also want photos suitable for social media.
Here’s what I recommend:
Sheer or Lace non-padded bra, panties, and lingerie, in black or white. Other colors can also work well, such as green, red, or pink. Avoid fluorescent or hot colors. Please remove tags and labels before the shoot, as the branding may be distracting in the photo.
Fishnet stockings or full-body suit. These lend themselves well to more abstract photos that show off curves with tantalizing detail.
Silky or sheer robes or kimonos. These are perfect with lingerie underneath, or without.
If you already know you would like to shoot nude, I recommend wearing loose comfortable clothing with no bra or underwear before coming to the shoot, as they may leave red marks on your skin for several hours.
Bring one pair of flats for walking outside, and one pair of plain high-heels. I usually do not show footwear in my photos, but heels do change the posture so I encourage you to bring a pair.
Finally, bring what excites you. Whether it’s your favorite baseball team’s hat, a T-shirt with a cheeky message that you just love, or a black leather harness with chains, bring it. I guarantee the photographs will be that much better with something you love.
Hair & Makeup
I’ll have a hair & makeup artist for the session, so you can come clean faced. If there are specific products you prefer or accessories such as fake eyelashes, bring them along. If you have any skin allergies or other concerns, let me know in advance and I’ll notify the makeup artist.
My studio is a small house in a quiet part of west Los Angeles, and you have already seen it in many of my photographs. It has excellent light throughout the day, which lets me use natural light from morning to evening.
There is usually street parking in front, and you are welcome to park in my driveway.
Can I bring a Friend or Partner?
Yes, just give me advance notice. I’ve had some issues in the past with friends being distracting to the session, so I may ask them to hang out in an adjacent room.
Do you only shoot Black and White? How about Color?
My personal style is black and white, but I do love color as well. I will provide color and black and white edits of your selected images, and whether the book is color or black and white is up to you.
What if I don’t look like your models?
I work with people of all shapes and sizes. The people you see in my portfolio are the ones who have allowed me to share the work we made, as I only post photos of clients with their permission.
