Pre-Glamour Shoot: 10 Common Mistakes to Avoid

1) No Crash Diet: Eat Healthy and Plenty!

Desperate to drop a few pounds for your upcoming photoshoot? Think again!

Don't worry about those extra pounds. As a professional, I have all the right angles, lighting, and editing techniques to elegantly shape and slim your body. Besides, even losing 5-10 lbs will not be noticeable in your photos. Instead, a crash diet will leave you drained, impatient, and unable to hold those glamorous poses.

2) Avoid the Dizzy Route: Stay Hydrated!

You might think drinking less water will help you appear less bloated during the photoshoot. In reality, it can lead to weakness, dizziness, and even fainting. Hydration is vital to your well-being, especially during a photoshoot. (Yes! I have had a client faint during a shoot because of dehydration.)

3) Save the Miami Party for After the Shoot!

We get it. You're excited to be in Miami! But remember, a well-rested model is a photogenic model. A photoshoot is several hours long and can be physically challenging if you are not used to posing. You need your body to be ready for the shoot's physical activities, especially if you're shooting outside, where the heat and elements drain your energy even faster.

4) Avoid the Orange Skin: Skip the Self-Tan!

Are you thinking of using a self-tanning cream? Don't! 

It usually leaves your skin looking unnaturally orange and blotchy in digital photos, which is challenging to fix post-production. Don't worry, though - I'm here to provide alternatives.

5) Pampering Yourself: Shave, Mani, & Pedi!

High-resolution digital cameras catch everything, right down to the fill of your chipped nails or a missed shave. So remember to Invest time in a fresh shave or wax, manicure, and pedicure. For the best results, take care of these grooming tasks a day in advance to avoid any potential skin irritation ensuring the camera captures nothing but your best. 

6)  Leave Makeup to the Pros!

Our professional makeup artists are here to give you celebrity-style, luxury-glamour results. They know how to help you look your absolute best, hiding blemishes and accentuating your features in a way regular makeup might miss. Yes, they are experienced in all skin tones and ages, guaranteeing you're photo-ready. Investing in professional makeup is the standard of a luxury glamour shoot.

7) No to Tight Clothes: Yes, Sundress!

Avoid all clothes that might leave marks on your skin. These will be visible in high-resolution photos and are challenging to edit out. Opt for something like a loose sundress for your pre-shoot outfit. No jeans, leggings, fishnets, boots, or clothing holding onto your skin on the day of your shoot.

8) Avoid multicolor or Traditional Swimwear:  Pick the Perfect Swimwear for your body.

Choosing swimwear isn't just about style; it's about fit. The fabric should lay taut and flat, and you want something that accentuates your natural beauty, not distract from it. Our stylist is here to help you make the right choice.

9) Lingerie Missteps: Why Knowing Your Body Type Matters!

Not all lingerie styles flatter all body types. Understanding your body type makes a huge difference, especially in a glamour photoshoot. Your lingerie should compliment your body type for a balanced look.

10) No Last-Minute Rush: Plan to Succeed!

Don't leave anything you need to do or buy for the day of your shoot. This only adds stress to your day and increases the chance of having something not ready. A relaxed and stress-free you will result in better pictures. Remember, photography is an art, and art cannot be rushed.

Are Professional Photos Really Worth the Investment?

For this post, I interviewed web designer/webmaster David Allen from David has over 25 years of industry experience specializing in escort websites and adult model marketing. So, I know he talks from experience.

What's your professional recommendation when it comes to photos on any website?

Get the best photographer you can afford! From all my year's building sites, I can tell you that my job just became much easier when you have excellent photography. It's simple. The better the images are, the better your site can look. I can create the best custom state-of-the-art website in the world, but a bad photo will still look bad no matter how nice a site you have. Although an amateur might take a good snapshot, a professional has additional skills like posing, lighting, and Photoshop to ensure the perfect result. Having great images on your site can make a massive difference to your conversion rate, and ultimately the income your website will generate.

1) It shows you are serious about your business

Nothing says amateur like blurry, poorly lit, bad photos. And who wants to do business with an amateur? Pro Photos show that you are a serious business, and your customers will see the value in what you are charging for your product or service. The top charging escorts always use high-quality photography that complements their websites. Every serious escort business needs a great website, and I would argue that you can't have a great website without great photography.

2) Helps your business stand out

The online market is now highly competitive, not like when I started building websites 25 years ago. In the current digital age, you need any edge you can get. Online potential clients are bombarded with over 5,000 images every day, and the average attention span has dropped down to less than 8 seconds. That's all the time you have to make an impression, and regular photos are just not going to cut it.

Pro Photos stop people in their tracks and capture the attention of your visitors. You want your potential clients to pause and take a closer look. This is why you must choose escort photography specializing in the type of glamour photography you'll like to show on your site. If the photos make you stop and look, it will also make your clients stop and look at you.

3) Defines your Target Clients and sets the mood for them.

They say a picture is worth 1000 words, and this is still true and even more crucial when it comes to an escort's site. As an escort, you are selling a fantasy to men, and a man's fantasy starts with what he first sees. Which fantasy do you want to set in your potential client's mind?

High-quality professional luxury images will evoke a feeling of your escort service being exclusive. In contrast, bad/regular photos will evoke a sense of cheap escort service to your potential clients.

The quality of the photos you use will directly reflect the quality of the service your clients will expect to receive and also the amount they are willing to invest in your escort service.

Marilyn Monroe's Secret

If you carefully study Marilyn Monroe's facial expressions in many pictures, you would notice how kind and open she looks. If you look at her photos and ask yourself how they make you feel, you will probably find that her facial expressions evoke feelings of love and warmth. Men automatically want to hug and kiss her when they look at her pictures.

Marilyn Monroe was a master at reproducing on command what sociologists call a pre-orgasmic expression. She would elevate her eyebrows, narrow her eyes, and opened mouth as if in a breath of pleasure. Together with her body language, this facial expression sends subliminal messages that hit the sexual pleasure points in every man's brain.

Combine her orgasmic expression with an element of innocence, and you have the perfect recipe for seducing men at the sexual level and the male provider and protector level. Whether in the company of men or in front of cameras, Marilyn Monroe could turn on the seduction and charm at will.

Marilyn's irresistible facial expressions did not come automatically, though. She studied iconic Hollywood women, and then she dedicated hours practicing her body language and facial expressions in front of the mirror every day. She worked hard at making sure her facial expression would seduce any man.

Practice smiling like Marilyn Monroe. You will notice that whenever she laughed, she tended to tilt her head up a little bit so that her 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 brains pick up on this subconsciously.

This was her secret.

Please 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.

Have amazingly sexy results from your next photoshoot 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 photos you see online 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 your photos will be used for and who is your target audience. What is it that you want the persons who see your photos to feel and react to you instantly? 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 you have a seductive feeling, imagine that you are making eye contact with a man you would like to capture his attention and seduce.

You already know how to do this automatically when your own emotions push you. However, practicing in front of a mirror helps you learn how to bring out that same expression on command. 

Close your eyes think of this expression and see 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 edit your body, but your expression is yours, and it cannot be adjusted in photoshop. Your facial expression is the most challenging part of your shoot, but you can achieve amazing results with practice. 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 look or a facial expression that does not go with your glamorous theme.

How to Shoot Better Selfies for your Social Media


1: iPhone/Smartphone
2: Selfie stick with a tripod
3: Wardrobe Styling that fits your client's lifestyle

Tip #1
Think like a pro photographer.

Get into the frame of mind that you have an actual photoshoot session. You should plan out the details of your selfie shoot's looks ahead of time and based on your target clients' lifestyle, just like any other photoshoot for your business. But, this time, you are the photographer.

Tip #2
Use a tripod to set your iPhone farther away from you.

Have you ever noticed that your nose looks more prominent in a handheld selfie? Moving away from your iPhone helps resolve the side effect of making anything near the lens look larger than it is in real life. Plus, a tripod lets you make better selfie compositions —helping your selfies to look more professional.

Tip #3
Use your back camera.

It's the best camera on your iPhone. You can mirror your iPhone screen with your laptop to view yourself, or you can place a mirror next to your phone to see yourself. In the last case, you can take some photos, check what you have, and make adjustments as needed. I know it's easier to see yourself on the front camera, but it's lower quality, and you want the best possible quality.

Tip #4
Use a remote to trigger your iPhone.

With a remote, you can take your own selfies while you vary your pose and expressions. Plus, it’s much easier to shoot yourself while not having to go back to your iPhone after you’ve set everything up. If you don't have a remote, use the 10-second timer and press the volume up button, but you can only take one shot at a time. I’ll cover in another post how to mirror your iPhone to your laptop or tv.

Tip #5
Shoot all your selfies outside during the day. 

iPhones cameras have software that can adjust to most daylight conditions, but the quality of photos they capture with low light is still inferior and screams out selfies. Sunlight is the best light source we have, and photography was designed around sunlight, plus it's free. You need good lighting for good photos.

Use Soft Lighting —it makes soft or no shadows, and It's the most flattering type of light because it hides skin imperfections. To capture soft lighting, shoot on a sunny day, early morning, or late afternoon when the sun is at lower angles. 

Tip #6 
Shoot in the shade if the sunlight is too harsh or too high up.

That way, you can avoid hard shadows, especially under your eyes. Overcast work, too, since the clouds diffuse the sunlight and give lots of soft light. Afternoon when the sun is at lower angles. 

Tip #7 
Shoot inside only during the day with lots of window light. 

Our eyes' pupils adjust to the change in lighting conditions, so there is usually not as much light inside as we think there is. So, shoot in spots where there is lots of window light falling on you. Window light is soft and wonderful for selfies and portraits. The larger the window, the better it will wrap around you and give you a more 3D illusion. 

Tip #8 
Check and double-check your background. 

The best photos have either interesting backgrounds or very simple ones. Does everything showing in the frame make sense for your business (check your notes)? If not, take it out. Fewer items in the background are usually best. Everything in your selfie should look clean, neat, well-kept, with elements that go with your target client's world. 

Tip #9 
Glam up your look to match your client's lifestyle.

Wear only outfits that line up with your ideal client's lifestyle, including accessories and shoes. The proper styling can take your selfies from simple to spectacular, so dress to impress. Glamourous life is usually not casual or comfy outfits. If your persona is a high-end luxury market, your outfits should always reflect this. 

Tip #10 
Use Gridlines  

Two vertical and two horizontal lines layout what’s called the rules of thirds in composition. The parts where the lines cross each other are the strongest points of interest in your photo. Put the most interesting part of your selfie on one of the crosses for a more pro look. Also, use the gridlines to help you keep your selfies straight when aligned with any vertical or horizontal items in your frame.

Bonus Tip

Change your iPhone to the below camera settings. iOS 14.4 

Go To: Setting (scroll down) then Camera, 

change the settings on your iPhone to match these below. 

Go To: Setting (scroll down) then Camera, Preserve Settings. 

Change the settings on your iPhone to match the below. 

Go To: Setting (scroll down) then Camera, Formats

change the settings on your iPhone to match these below. 

Use these settings for better control and quality during your selfie photoshoot. When you open your camera, you’ll see the grid and controls as in my cat photo. Use these settings and remember to adjust the exposure as needed for each composition.

Now you know that if you post selfies as part of your business, they should be of the best possible quality and style. So, only post the best selfies you can take that fit your target clients.

5 Things to NOT do before your Glamour Photoshoot (Part 2)

1)Your Own Makeup - You don't think it's worth it.

Professional cameras, lenses, and lights capture more details than you notice in real life. Unfortunately, they also capture more of your blemishes.

So, unless you're a pro makeup artist, don't do your makeup. We want you to have our celebrity-style luxury-glamour results.

My professional makeup artists have extensive experience working with women of all skin tones and of all ages. They will contour your face, and your skin will be photo-ready. 

Remember, you're shooting for your business, and you want to show your very best quality to stand out from your competition.

A Pro Makeup Artist uses accurate colors and a combination of makeup pigments that make your skin glow smoothly under professional lighting. Yes, professional makeup makes all the difference and is worth the investment.

2) Wear Tight Clothes - leggings, jeans, socks, on the day of your shoot.

You want your skin to be as blemish-free as possible for your shoot, and clothing that is not loose-fitting will leave marks on your skin.

Skin marks will be noticeable in high-resolution photos, and the more your body needs to be edited, the harder it will become to leave your skin looking natural.

The best clothes to wear on the day of your shoot is a loose sundress that you can change in and out of.

3) Buy the wrong swimwear for your shoot.

Choose a swimsuit that lays flat on your body like a tight pair of jeans with no excess fabric folding over.
Plus, it should be suitable for your body type with colors and prints that enhance your natural skin color. - my stylist will help you with this.

Solid colors look more sophisticated than busy prints. Remember that the focus is on you, not your bikini.

Tops need to have good support if you need a lift. If your body is not toned, do not choose a string bikini because the strings and thin straps will get lost in your skin. I always recommend choosing Brazilian-Cut swimsuits.

Choose a sexy and elegant bikini. The best brands carry the best quality; they are stylish and modern, sexy, and not wide cut. No full bottom bottoms, please!

4) Buy the wrong lingerie for your body type.

Your lingerie and outfits should be ideal for your body type to balance your look. Not all lingerie styles look great on all body types, and knowing your body type can make all the difference, especially for your glamour photoshoot.

Fashion experts have created 10 categories to give you more precise recommendations when choosing your best lingerie.

Is your body shape?





Short Torso

Long Torso



Small Chest

5) Something last minute.

Although we will have a photoshoot schedule, leaving something you need to do for the day of your photo session is not a good idea because you may run out of time.

If you leave something you need to buy or something you still need to do for your shoot, like getting a manicure, picking up flowers, or looking for the last outfit, you can quickly run out of time or not find what you need.

Plus, It will only add stress to your already eventful day and increase the chance that you will not be fully prepared for your shoot.

You want your shoot day to be as stress-free as possible so that you can be relaxed and give your best expressions with the emotions that will resonate with your target clients.

Also, don't plan anything for right after your shoot. You don't want to stress about rushing to end your shoot because you have something to do.

I take my time shooting each of your looks. Photography is an art, and art can not be rushed.
I don't change looks until I'm sure I've captured several poses that, when edited, will look fabulous.

Want to avoid all planning stress and these amateur mistakes?
