Your Dream Shoot Planner
We hope you are as excited as we are for the ultimate luxury photographic experience. We have created this detailed dream shoot planner to help you along your journey. Through a passion for photography and a desire to help clients discover their inner and outer beauty, we have cultivated a strong business presence helping clients to truly believe in their beauty and themselves.
At Gold Coast Glamour Photography, we provide professional hair and makeup services not to make you look better, but to help you see that you are gorgeous.
It’s not about how you look but rather how you feel about the way you look. Confidence is truly a beautiful thing. Confidence is what we all need. Confidence, self-acceptance, and personality are what we bring out in the clients we photograph. You are perfect now. It is our job to coach and find the model within you that has been there all along.
Some of us forget what it’s like to feel beautiful and strong along the way. We get too busy with our lives, our family & our jobs.
This experience is for you to feel that again… because you truly are perfect right now.
WHERE DO I START?
Once you arrive our professional hair/makeup artist will be ready to create the perfect look you’re going for! All you need to do it show up! Your retainer fee includes your professional hair/makeup services and we have sets/props that will create a variety of looks within your photoshoot. While you are in hair and makeup, we will go through your wardrobe and plan out your shoot. We use flattering lighting and of course we retouch (more on that later). We will pose you from the angles of your head the whole way down to your feet! As you can see there’s nothing to worry about, we’ve got you covered!
With our all-female staff you’re in good hands, and we can’t wait for your shoot! Once you book your shoot, we’ll send you a fun questionnaire where you can tell us exactly the look you’re going for! On the day of your shoot, your stylist will be prepared to create the perfect look for you!
Professional hair and makeup is such an essential part of the boudoir photography experience; it can make or break your photoshoot and that’s why we only work with the best makeup and hair artists! We have two professional hair/makeup stylists who know how to give you the perfect look you’re wanting, but most importantly they know how to do makeup for the particular lighting and retouching techniques we use.
Do you have a specific look in mind? In addition to your questionnaire, feel free to create a Pinterest board and send us the link! email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
One of the most common concerns about doing a glamour or boudoir shoot is, what will I wear? We ask our clients to bring 4-6 different looks, not including jerseys or button downs. Jersey’s are cute, but not cute enough to shoot a whole set in. Also remember to bring a variety of items. Things to change up the shoot like casual, formal, sexy, swimwear, jeans……
When you book, you will start to receive a bunch of emails, spaced out from the time you book to the date of your shoot. It will include a guide that lists our favorite websites and also has information about different types of lingerie. We have a good number of outfits and accessories at the studio that you can borrow. However, It is very important that you bring your wardrobe so you know it fits you properly. Fit is SO important. We can not fix ill fitting lingerie or clothing in Photoshop.
If you have lots of ideas and outfits and you’re having trouble narrowing them down then we always recommend you bring it all! It is better to have too much than not enough.
We have photographed hundreds of clients of all shapes and sizes. We will tell you everything to do, from the angles of your head the whole way to your toes. You don’t need to worry about a thing, you just need to simply show up for your session.
We have years of training in posing to ensure that you are always posed in the most flattering ways and under the most flattering lighting. Once it’s time for your shoot we will just ask you to do simple things such as: “bring that shoulder towards me, bring your chin forward a bit, now look up at me with your eyes, put your hand here, etc.” It’s super simple and again you don’t need to do anything to prepare for this.
“Do you use Photoshop?” This is the number one question we are asked. The answer is “YES”. You can rest at ease knowing that we’ve been in business for a long time and our customers love how we do this! You will still be YOU, just a retouched glamorous version of you!
