Dear next client,
I love your skin. I think you’re gorgeous. Your melanin amount is not the wrong amount.
Please, do not change your natural beauty for a boudoir session.
Now, I want you to know that I hear you. You may like to be tan. You may want this for your pictures, but there is absolutely no need to. Mainly because I edit in earthy tones. This will make you look naturally a tad darker. Also, you can opt for white, ivory, or light colored outfits to assume a darker looking skin.
Keep in mind that I offer a complimentary wardrobe consultation with any booked session and would love to help you choose the perfect outfit!
If you feel the NEED to change the look of your skin before a session and cannot be swayed- here is my advice to you.
1. Schedule your session for mid-late summer to achieve a very natural tan that will compliment your session. Natural is just better and this is my number one recommendation for tanning. However, please do not sit in the sun and burn on my account hoping for a fade-in tan. I care so much that you are healthy over tan. Truly a healthy woman, is a gorgeous woman.
The only danger here is funky or intense tan lines. If you wear fishnet stockings everywhere or love your super strappy bathing suits, then this is not a great option for you. I can soften some of those lines in editing, but I cannot remove them completely without an extra editing cost (and nobody wants you to have an extra cost). Especially if you’ve got some deep crisscross applesauce going on over your entire body.
2. A tanning booth. This is not a recommendation to go tanning. I stand by my opinion that you are already beautiful and I believe that tanning beds are terrible for your skin. But, if you must do something artificial, do this.
3. And, of course, the monster under the bed- or rather, smeared on it. Please for all that is good in this world- do not spray/wipe on tan within 5 days of your session. You may love the look you get from these tans but they are often blotchy on your hands, feet, elbows, or crevices (especially in editing). They also will end up looking orange, editing or not, because cameras don’t read good intentions. These tans will smear and stain. They will be left behind for some very intense stain removal processes that are in no way easy. I will appreciate you so much if you do not go this route.
Finally, remember that tanning is an additive as much as a prop is in these session. Don’t let someone pressure you out of achieving beautifully natural pictures. No matter the occasion, you will also be seeing these for years to come and I imagine, as you look back, you will love you just as much naturally as you would with a tan.
