CLOTHING AND OTHER THINGS TO BRING


You should bring along clothes as similar as possible to what is shown on the moodboard.

I suggest you send me some pics of the clothes you’ve chosen at least 7/10 days before the session – also some selfies in the mirror of you wearing them are fine and can be sent to my Telegram.

These are a must for any shooting:

  • A pair of black high heels: even if they are not seen in the images they help to slim your body
  • A short black dress
  • A strapless black bra
  • A buttoned shirt or shirt of light material, like a see through type of fabric, open front
  • A shirt with a wide neck off the shoulders
  • A dress or cardigan open front

For clothing use a color in contrast with the color of your hair – if you are blonde wear these garments in black (which I love!) or a dark color; if you have dark hair bring them in a light color if you can, otherwise black is fine too.
When in doubt, ask me!

As for the shoes, I prefer black, but if you have a pair that you love to use in another color send a photo on my Telegram.

You can see some examples of clothing on this page.

Other useful things to bring:
  • Lotion or coconut oil or, alternatively, massage oil or baby oil – in doubt, Johnsons Baby Oil is perfect
  • Makeup
  • Make up remover
  • Lip gloss
  • Hair styling accessories, such as elastics, bobby pins, hairspray, etc.
  • Curlers / hair irons
  • If you have a preferred music, bring an MP3 player or bluetooth phone – I always have bluetooth speakers with me
  • A kimono or bathrobe to stay indoors and warm during breaks
  • Accessories such as jewellery, scarves, bracelets – large jewellery generally works well in pictures

If we planned to create also some glamor and/or boudoir images:
  • Lingerie (whatever you have that looks nice)
  • Nylon stockings, fishnet stockings, suspenders
  • Various clothes, usually any elegant garments will do. But also think unconventionally: a short jacket and a thong could be perfect

AT YOUR OWN

With experience I understand that each of us has one or two pieces of clothing in which we feel “at home”, I mean totally at ease.

I’ll ask you to bring them along even if they have nothing to do with the moodboard of the session – especially if you don’t have much experience in front of the camera, so we can use them to get started.
