Keeping it smokin' hot in the cooler months- Panama City Beach boudoir

It may be getting cooler in some parts of the country but here in Panama City Beach, it’s nice and hot!- and so is the weather ;) Ms. M here is amazing. She’s such an incredibly hard worker and bikini competitor, wife, mama to two sets of twins, and beautiful heart. She came into the studio for an anniversary gift (some of those fabulous shots are for her husband’s eyes only but she ROCKED those too) and also because she she recently competed. I am so proud of her and who she is. Love spending time with her and hearing her story and completely blessed being constantly surrounded by strong, courageous and honestly badass women. Here’s just a few of my favorites from out of the studio!

A gift Celebrating You- Panama City Beach Portraits

My mindset of a woman’s age has changed over the last few years. I see women in the 30s, 40s, 50s + becoming more confident and sexy. No longer 20 (thank GOD) we start to stand firm in who we are and exude confidence without trying. Women become sexier with age, it’s something i’ve blogged about before and this woman is no exception. This fabulous, spunky, hard working, stunning woman visited from out of town and in celebration of turning 50 she worked her fabulous butt off. I love spending time with women through the portrait process. From our consult and chatting, to the makeup and hair, and really connecting during the shoot, I am so lucky to have a little insight to their big bold lives. Women I believe in and the conversations we hold are both light and full of laughter and sometime sharing past hurts and triumphs. What a beautiful thing, and I hope she looks back and sees the fiery goddess she is.

so in honor of this woman i’m suggesting two books on amazon (using my affiliate code) Daring Greatly and Great Rich Lucky Bitch!

Two Books i’ve suggested in the past but Daring Greatly is for men and women and if you check her out on netlfix, I guarantee you’ll love this author Brene Brown. It’s about her extensive research on vulnerability and it’s a must. Get Rich Lucky Bitch! by Denise Duffield-Thomas is another I couldn’t put down and really how it’s not luck it’s hard work but oh so worth it! so click the links above to get yours today!

How to prepare for your boudoir photoshoot

For those of you with a boudoir or beauty photoshoot ahead, first of all- so proud of you, an expression of self-love, bravery, and badass-ery! (it’s a word now.) Here’s a few preparation tips so your shoot can go as smooth as possible! Below you’ll see 10 boudoir preparation tips and also 5 day of tips!

**Wardrobe is a whole different blog post, so click HERE if you want some tips on what to wear and where to shop!

10 Boudoir Preparation Tips

Take this time to pamper yourself, you’re worth it.


1- stay away from junk foods and alcohol for a couple days prior or foods you’re allergic too, it’ll help with bloating.

2- If you get your nails done, make sure they’re fresh, or if you don’t wear any that’s fine too! As long as they’re not chipped, believe it or not, it is distracting in photos.

3- Getting your hair done just a few weeks prior is always a good idea, touch up your color, roots, or whatever fabulous style you have!

4- try to schedule it days away from your period or days surrounding your period when you know you retain more water or bloat.(midol can help though)

5- refrain from spray tanning especially close to the date. It ends up looking orange in camera, and if you do tan, try not to get burnt too close to your shoot! Although UV tanning is more harmful, it does look better in camera.

6- False eyelashes- um yes please! Most of my makeup artists will add them to their fee, but if you get them done, go for it!

7-Keep drinking lots of water to flush out, and to keep your skin looking full of natural glow

8- Wash your face before bed (especially if you don’t) starting a few nights prior, you’ll notice a huge difference in how your skin looks when you wake up!

9-if you are waxing/shaving do it a few days prior so red bumps aren’t an issue.

10- overpack your lingerie bag!- We’ll go through what will look best in camera, and it’s always good to have a few extra pieces.

5 Day of Tips

1- eat a lighter breakfast, don’t skip it all together!- you’ll need energy for all that posing. It’ll feel like a light workout, holding all those muscles.

2- wear loosely fitted clothing. Tighter bras and shirts tend to leave red marks.

3- wear clear deodorant

4- clip out all tags from lingerie. a lot of sheer pieces have the tag right on the booty, and it can be a process to edit out.

5- Relax and enjoy your session! I know it seems like a lot of instructions, just want you to feel your best for your photoshoot. I’ll be there the whole time helping with posing and making sure you feel comfortable and gorgeous!
