5 things to never do before a photo-shoot.

1) Go on a Crash-Diet to lose a few quick pounds.

Food is energy, and posing takes energy. If you are not used to posing you will notice that it does take work to hold glamorous poses especially while trying to keep pleasant facial expression. Trying to lose a few quick pounds right before your shoot will only leave you with low energy, hungry, and with a little patience. Plus, and the difference will not be noticeable. One thing that the camera does pick up is your mood. But, I know what you are thinking, if I eat, my belly will show. Know this: I will pose you in positions where your body looks the best and in combination with the lighting, I can edit your body, but I cannot edit your expression or low energy. You are perfect the way you are now! A photo-shoot is not a 10-minute weigh-in that you are in and out. This is at least a half-day event from start to finish between the hair & makeup and getting ready.

2) Stop drinking water/fluids because you don’t want to be bloated.

Unless you are a professional bodybuilding athlete and are going to be shooting for a muscle magazine, you should never try to lose water weight before a shoot. Water keeps your body functioning right and together with proper eating and rests water helps your skin and face looking fresh. If your shoot is outside or at the beach, the heat here in Miami Beach is overwhelming especially if you are not used to standing in the sun for a long time. You will feel dizzy and weak if you poorly hydrated and it will be more difficult to hold your poses and to have a pleasant expression. Plus you can even faint. I have had it happened to a girl I was shooting. She banged her head when she fainted.

3) You are in South Beach, so hit the clubs and the drinks and stay up all night. The make-up artist will not come till 6:30 am so you have plenty of time to party!

No, no, no! If you read point 1 and 2 you will have already figured it out why you need to be well rested and feeling healthy and strong for your photo-shoot. If you are shooting at the beach, you will have an impossible time trying to keep your eyes open. This is the number 1 most common challenge with my beach shoot is girls not being able to open their eyes at the beach even if it’s in the shade. If you have sensitive eyes, then you need to rest even more before your beach/outside shoot.

4) Apply a Self-Tanning lotion before your shoot because you look too pale.

Applying Self-tanning cream/lotions on your skin look terrible in digital photos. They leave an orange tone on your skin that looks un-human and it is very difficult to correct. Plus, your skin will look plastically because the self-tanning cream/lotion covers the natural skin glow. Also, self-tanning cream/lotion rubs off on your clothes, and anything you touch or lay on –it ‘s a big mess! And, your face will not match your body. It’s better to look pale and human than orange (unless you are impersonating Donald Trump). Instead, tan yourself 1 week before the shoot 3-4 times at the beach or at a tanning spa to achieve a natural tan color, but don’t overdo it and show up with red skin or face! I rather you do nothing than risk having a sunburn for your shoot. The best option if you are too pale is to have a professional spray tan, but you must follow their steps and preparations to have good results for a photo-shoot.

5) Do not shave/wax or get a fresh manicure and pedicure.

The photo-shoot is about you looking the very best and glamorous. This includes some pre-shoot preparations. Yes, have a fresh manicure and pedicure. The camera will pick up that your nails need to be filled in, and that you have not shaved in your delicate areas in several days. To look beautiful it’s all in the details from your head to your toes. When you look at a luxury product it doesn't have cheap parts. It's well made of the finest products in all details. These details on a woman include being freshly wax or shaved under your underarms, legs, and bikini area. WebMD recommends: “To avoid irritation, don't work out or wear tight clothing immediately after grooming. Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.” You should shave the day before to help prevent a developing a rash.

Now that you have these 5 tips you are better prepared for your next photo-shoot.

Should you Shave or Should you Wax

Today's digital professional cameras capture every detail of your

smile, body, and curves in high resolution, and if your feminine body parts are not well groomed from your head to your toes and everything in between, it will be noticeable in the photos.

Yes, this can be edited in photoshop, but why give your photographer extra retouching work on something you should have taken care of before the shoot? So, after you have selected the sexy lingerie and the hot bikinis for your next photoshoot, don't skip over your bikini area.

Now the question is should you shave or should you wax.

Shaving Tips

Start by trimming your pubic hair with scissors or a bikini trimmer.


Trim everywhere but avoid your lady parts and leave the hair less than 1 inch long. If you are happy with your hair after trimming, and if this is the look you are going for in your photos, you do not need to do anything more or shave anything. This is all up to you and your personal choice.
Before you shave, soak in the hot shower for 10 minutes or in a warm bath before moving to the shaving.
Lather up with soap or shaving cream, and use a clean sharp blade and shave with the grain the first time.

Do not shave the same spot more than a few times to avoid irritation.

Dr. Julie Harper

Clinical associate professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham and a spokeswoman for Philips says you can avoid irritation by following these tips:

“Treat razor burn and ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the affected area with a washcloth in the shower, and avoid shaving -- until the redness and irritation have subsided.”

“Resist the urge to perform DIY surgery on razor bumps and ingrown hairs. The bump could get infected and you might be left with an ugly scar. You can try gently lifting ingrown hairs with a toothpick, but don’t use anything too sharp. If the hair doesn’t lift easily, stop, and if the area is tender or hot to the touch, see your doctor.”

To avoid irritation, don't work out or wear tight clothing immediately after shaving. This also includes having sex. Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.”

For these reasons, shave the day before your beach bikini shoot, not the day of.


Waxing Tips

Many women prefer the longer-lasting results and choose to get a bikini wax. As with many things in life, waxing does get better the more your do it.

Your hairs will start to grow less thick and hurt less when waxed often, and your skin will stay smoother longer as long as you get waxed on a regular basis.

Stop shaving for about 5 days or more.

Before waxing your hair needs to be about 1/4 of an inch long or the size of a grain of rice. The wax needs something to grab onto so you need to have some hair down there for it to work best.

Traditional/Standard Bikini Wax

A traditional bikini wax focuses on the front and sides. It removes the hairs that would be visible in a swimsuit. Most of the time, you can leave your underwear on during a standard/traditional bikini wax.

Brazilian Wax

A Brazilian wax removes more hair than a traditional bikini.
The Brazilian wax removes the hair from the front, sides, back, and everything in between, often leaving only a strip of hair in the front or none at all. 
For a Brazilian wax, you won't wear panties. Yes, you will be completely exposed. Remember that your waxer is a licensed professional and this is what she does all day several times a day.
She will not judge you. Her focus is on doing her job and leaving you smooth. 

A Brazilian wax will leave your skin smoother for a bikini and a lingerie photoshoot. 


After your wax.

Wear cotton loose panties, no thongs, and nothing tight especially tight jeans.

Skin can be extra-sensitive to bacteria, moisture, and chafing from your workout clothes.

Do not do anything that will involve rubbing, or sweating on the day you get waxed. Yes, this includes having sex and having a beach photo-shoot.

Buy Ingrown Hair Serum

Apply it twice a day to keep your skin smooth and prevent ingrown hairs or to treat them if you already have them.  

Get your Bikini wax at least 24 hours before your hot beach photoshoot.

Don't take hot showers or baths for several hours after removing hair. Water that's too hot can irritate pores, causing unwanted bumps and discomfort. 

My wife says waxing down there really doesn't hurt as much as you think it will.

Your waxer will put hot wax on you, which actually feels great, she says. It's warm and soothing. When she rips it off, it does hurt (it stings), but that pain only lasts a few seconds. 


The more you go, the less it hurts. She told me that as you go more often, the root stops growing in and there isn't as much hair to pull out. So don't worry about it and start waxing!

How to look sultry, seductive, and sexy in your photos - Part 1


Have amazingly sexy results from your next photo shoot by just following these steps, and you will arrive at your next shoot fully prepared so that your photographer can capture mind-blowing shots of you.

Start Weeks Before Your Shoot Day.

Step 1: (select images)

Pick out and save your favorite images you see on-line or from magazines that have the expression that you would like for your photos. These photos will be your inspirational images.

Step 2: (get your mirror)

Spend 5 minutes every day in front of the mirror to practice smiling, showing sexy confident looks, and copying the facial expression you see in the magazines/online photo that you have selected. Practice with the mirror until you know what your face feels like in each expression. Then, practice so you can do it without the mirror and still nail the right expression.

Step 3: (target audience)

Don't know which expressions you should be making for your photos? Think about what will your photos be used for, and who is your target audience. What is it that you want the persons that see your photos to instantly feel and react to about you? Focus on just them, and on sending the right facial expression to them.

Step 4: (imagine)

Imagine yourself in the situation where you would be making the expression you want to show on your face to your target audience. For example, if what to have a seductive expression, imagine that you are in making eye contact with a man you would like to capture his attention and seduce. You already know how to do this automatically, but now you need to bring that expression out in front of your mirror. Close your eyes and think of this expression and see yourself how you look in the mirror. Remember to practice this until you can do it over and over and without the mirror.

The photographer can pose you and can edit your body, but your expression is yours and it cannot be edited. Your facial expression is the most challenging part of your shoot, but with practice, you can achieve amazing results. Just practicing this step will help you tremendously during the shoot. This way you can give the camera different expressions and not have a deer-in-the-headlights expression or a facial expression that does not go with your sexy outfit.

Marilyn Monroe's  Pre-Orgasmic Expression

Marilyn Monroe's sexy expression on her face and her body language were what sociologist call a pre-orgasmic expression, and she was the master at it. Her sexy facial expressions did not come automatic, though. She studied iconic Hollywood women and then she dedicated hours practicing her body language and facial expressions in front of the mirror every single day. She worked hard at making sure her facial expression would seduce any man.

If you carefully study her facial expressions on every picture, you would notice how kind and open she looked. Also, if you look at her pictures and ask yourself how do they make you feel, you will probably find that her facial expressions evoke feelings of love and warmth. Men want to hug and kiss her when they look at her pictures.

Practice smiling like Marilyn Monroe. You will notice that whenever she laughed she tended to tilt her head up a little bit, so the teeth will be seen. Her eyebrows would always be slightly raised while her eyelids would be slightly down, so her eyes are half open.

Lowering the eyelids while simultaneously raising the eyebrows and looking up and slightly parting the lips is a combination that women have used for centuries to show sexual submissiveness. Research has shown that this is the expression many women have before an orgasm, and men's brain pick up on this subconsciously. This was her secret. Pay close attention to her facial movements. Ask yourself: "How do her eyebrows move? her lips, her eyes?"

Now you know how to look Sultry, Seductive, and Sexy in your photos, so go and practice it.

Lingerie for your Body Type - how to balance your curves


Just as there is that particular outfit of clothing that when you put it on you feel confident, powerfully, and happy, every piece of lingerie you slip on should leave you feeling this same way plus intimately more powerfully sexy.

Not all lingeries styles look the best on all body types and knowing which type of lingerie to wear can make all the difference especially for your glamour photoshoot. Fashion experts today have created 11 categories to give you more precise advice when choosing your best lingerie.

Find the body type that is most similar to you and read below the tips for lingeries that help balance out your body shape. Know that your body shape is beautiful, and you need to focus on your best assets and highlight them while keeping in mind what works best for you. Although you can wear many different types of lingerie below are the tips on what you need to include so that your body shape is showed off in the best light. Read through the tips especially for your body type.

Apple Shape Celebrities: Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta Jones

Women with apple-shaped bodies have a waistline that is your widest measurement, and your hips and bust are not as wide in comparison to your midsection. Lingerie that elongates the line of your body will work great on you — bodysuits lingerie with deep V-necks are for you. The one-piece alternative to a bra and undies will highlight your décolletage and show off some tasteful skin, too. If you’re busty, look for options with side boning at the breasts, or underwire for extra support and coverage. Avoid any lingerie that will add volume to your mid section.

Ballerina Shape Celebrities: Model Karlie Kloss, Natalie Portman in Black Swan

This is a gorgeous long, lean build. You have legs that go on for days and understated curves. You are slender with a muscular frame and can wear longline bras, high-waisted underwear, and other eclectic lingerie with ease. Knowing you have ample room to experiment, recommended is the slightly edgy, totally sexy halter-neck bra for your next romantic night in — its sporty silhouette will definitely vibe with your frame. Paired with a matching thong or brief, the combination will highlight your athletic limbs — and your style prowess. Choose a shaped bust inset and halter neck to broaden your shoulders and highlight your bust. Try out an empire waist to show off your long lines.

Busty Celebrity: Kate Upton

A lot of "sexy" lingerie isn't designed with the busty woman in mind. Know your breast type — whether it’s splayed, wide-set, a combination of the two, or something else. Fashionable underwire options are available to you — as long as you know where to look. A balconette or demi style bra for your shape; the lower-cut cups will tastefully showcase your natural curves. As for bottoms, try ones with thicker waistbands, like high-waisted briefs or boyshorts, to help balance your larger top. You have beautiful curves, with your bust being proportionally larger than your hips or waist so show them off.

Short Torso Celebrity: Solange

Your waist is naturally high and your legs extra-long. Steer clear of high-waisted bottoms that will shorten your torso; instead, craft the appearance of a longer midsection with low-rise underwear. In the spirit of "sexy lingerie," try hipsters as a sassy alternative to more basic, low-rise bikinis. The added fabric they provide along your sides with help elongate your line, too. Congratulations, you have long, gorgeous legs! A longline lace bodice will elongate your upper body.

Carrot Shape Celebrity: Angelina Jolie

Your body is wider on top and gets slimmer on the way down. Try switching up your standard matching bra-and-thong routine and layer on a babydoll chemise or slip that will flatter your broader-set shoulders. Not only are they practical intimates to pair with see-through dresses, the addition of lace and other romantic details makes the pieces alluring when worn alone. The trick is making sure that whatever intimate you choose has a flared bottom to help promote symmetry. You're blessed with slim legs and ankles, broad shoulders, and a waist and hips that are relatively similar in size. It's also sometimes referred to as an inverted triangle shape. Think Old Hollywood glamor - insets at the waist and bust will emphasize your curves, and lace at the hem balances out your shoulders while showing off your legs.

Small Chest Celebrity: Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus

If you don’t need much in the way of support on top — and sometimes just go braless altogether — you have more flexibility than most in the underwear department. That said, it's possible the bras you do wear have constantly slipping straps that ail you on date night. Either way, recommended are T-strap and racerback bralettes; they're slightly sporty, flirty, and comfortable enough to wear all day. Feeling comfortable in your intimates really does make all the difference. Whether you’re long and lanky or otherwise curvy, your bustline is petite.

Long Torso Celebrity: Kendall Jenner, Olivia Wilde

If you have a long torso and short legs, the lingerie style best suited to you couldn’t be more on-trend this season: high-waisted underwear is all for you. The retro silhouette is flattering on a number of shapes. For yours, it’ll shorten your midsection and elongate your limbs — it's a no-brainer. Shop a few playfully printed bottoms, then pair them with a black bra on top for an effortless, put-together look. All this means is that, overall, the top half of your body - from your shoulders to your waist - is longer than the bottom half. It's also sometimes called "long-waisted.”You have a defined waist to be envied! Pick a lace bralette insert or an empire waist to highlight your elegant proportions. Take advantage of being able to wear a long flowing skirt with spaghetti straps to emphasize your upper body.

Ruler Celebrity: Gwyneth Paltrow

As the name suggests, ruler-shaped bodies are straight throughout — without much variation between one’s shoulder, waist, or hip. The key is finding undergarments that'll subtly enhance your curves. Unlike traditional bras with bands that are an inch or 2 wide, longline bras and bralettes extend farther down the torso for a retro feel will help fill out your shape a bit. They're the crop tops of lingerie and, like high-waisted underwear, are often viewed as an intentional fashion statement. The good news for you: You have a fabulously long, straight line with similar measurements from shoulder to waist to hip like a supermodel. Choose an elongated lace bodice but make sure it features lace insets at the hips to give a little definition.

Hourglass Shape Celebrity: Kim Kardashian

Hourglass figures are easy to identify because they’re symmetrical: Your chest and hips are equally proportioned, and your waistline is your narrowest measurement. Use your “classic” shape to your advantage, and add a suspender belt to your bra-and-panty set. The fancy adornment (its original, intended purpose was to keep one's stockings from slipping) will place the emphasis firmly on your narrow waist. The finished look it creates is classically sexy, like your shape. You have a classic pin-up girl shape with a nipped in waist and full curves in your chest and hips.

Petit & Compact Shape Celebrity: Ariana Grande

If you’re petite all over, you can get away with wearing less-supportive styles that bustier and fuller-figured women might shy away from — lingerie sets with soft cups, for example. While underwire offers great additional shape, for you, wireless bras are by no means a deal breaker. They might actually be your preferred style. So, go ahead: You have the opportunity to shop the less "functional" pieces some ladies can merely admire from afar. Like a gymnast, petite and compact women are small and mighty in all respects. Look for spaghetti straps and a deep V-neck inset to elongate your neck and torso.

5 MORE THINGS NEVER TO DO BEFORE YOUR GLAMOUR PHOTO-SHOOT

.


6)Try to do your own Makeup because you don't think a pro makeup artist is worth it

This is a professional glamour photoshoot, and you should look polished and not how you typically look every day. Yes, professional makeup makes all the difference and is worth the investment. High definition photography and strobe lights will capture more of your beauty and flaws, so you need to have your makeup done professionally. Some women believe that nature makeup is the way to go since they do not want to have much makeup in their photos. To achieve the beautiful natural make-up look like the ones you see in magazines and in all professional sites, you will always need a professional makeup artist. A Pro Makeup Artist uses the right colors and a combination of make-up pigments that glow in a smooth, flattering way. There is no such thing as having a little make-up and achieving a natural look on your own. A natural makeup look involves more advanced steps which include applying the right makeup that conceals your blemishes and dark spots, contouring and sculpturing your facial features, and thinning out your face as well as warming up your skin tone in the spots needed. Then, a highlighter is added on your cheekbones which bring them out and gives a subtle glow to the face. Eyebrows are filled in and defining as well as the lips while making sure the t-zone stays matte for a glowing finish. Remember that photography is not real life. Many things are not noticeable in real life but that will be noticeable in a photograph that you can stare at forever. Go all the way with a professional Glamour look!

Achieving Professional Photos that look amazing from top to bottom is my passion, but you just can't show up unprepared to have great results. A professional photo-shoot include having the right outfits, locations, backgrounds, lighting, makeup, angles, styling, manicure, and many other details than just taking a regular snap photo. Check out my before and after of real women to see my final results.

.

7) Wear Jeans, tight socks, or any other tight outfits on the day of your shoot

You want your body and skin to be as flawless as possible and any type of clothing that is not loose fitting will leave Marks on your skin that can take over an hour to disappear. These marks will be fully visible in high-resolution photos, so please wear loose fitting clothes to your shoot. Yes, they can be photoshopped out, but the more your skin needs to be edited the more work it will be and the harder it will become to leave your skin looking natural.

.

8) Buy a bikini for your shoot that covers-up more because you are not feeling 100% confident about your body

Choose a swimsuit that lays flat on your body with No excess fabric wrinkling. The material should lay flat like a tight pair of jeans. It needs to be right for your body type. The colors and prints need to enhance your natural skin color. Go for solid colors that look sophisticated. Keep in mind that the focus is on you and not your bikini (unless this is a bikini catalog shoot). Tops need to have good support if you need a natural lift. If your body is not very toned, do not choose a string bikini because the strings and thin straps will cut into your skin. If you are planning for a sexy photo shoot for a Victoria’s Secret or Sports Illustrated style, I always recommend choosing Brazilian-Cut swimsuits. This is not the time to wear something conservative, traditional or something you would wear with your family. Choose a sexy, classy, elegant bikini. The best brands carry the best quality; they are stylish and have a cut that is modern, sexy, and not wide. No full bottom bottoms, please! This is a sexy glamour shoot and not a family shoot. You are in Miami where less is more, and if you want your butt to look bigger wear a very small cut bottom so that the curve of your bottom is easier to be captured in the photos. Remember that your photos will be edited and together with my lights and photography you will look fabulous!

.

9) Buy/bring the wrong lingerie to your shoot for your body type

You need to know what your body type is so that you can wear the right lingerie and outfits that will best balance your look. Not all lingeries styles look the best on all body types and knowing which type of lingerie to wear can make all the difference especially for your glamour photoshoot. Fashion experts today have created 11 categories to give you more precise advice when choosing your best lingerie. Are you and Apple, Pear, Long Torso, Hourglass, Short Torso, Ruler, Carrot, Ballerina, Busty, Small Chest, or a Petite body type woman? Read the full article on women's Body Type here to know what goes with you.

10) Ask your photographer for a Sunset Beach Shoot here in Miami

Remember that the sun rises in the East and so here in Miami Beach, we have only Sunrise beach shoots but no Sunset beach shoots. The Sun at sunset is behind the Miami downtown buildings and the lighting on the beach is very melancholy and not colorful. A Sunrise Beach shoot is fantastic because you don't have to worry about it turning dark in the next 15 minutes, but it does mean very early setups if you want to have a Sunrise Beach shoot. We would need to be at the beach ready to shoot by 5:30 am during the summer hours. The best times to shoot at the beach, in general, is early morning or late afternoon when the sunlight's angle is more flattering, and the lighting is softer. Remember you will need clear skies and low winds so please check the Miami Beach weather and with me a few days before your shoot.
