this was my favorite shot from my shoot with a pro photog (i won the session in a contest)

and ironically, it shows just about nothing– but the implication is there, which is what I love so much about it =)

I also played around with lots of hats (fedoras, baseball caps, etc) and wore some of his dress socks/ dress shirt for a fun, flirty, sexy feel

dont heistate on doing dark dark makeup, it fades a bit in photos & there is always a way to “hide” certain trouble spots– just play around with posing/ camera location.

Maybe look up some advice for poses online. My photographer posed me and knew how to make you look good since she’s been doing it so long. There has to some advice on poses somewhere and how to angle shots.

I don’t think you need much in the way of props. I’d say some chunky/big necklaces to play with, maybe a tie, heels, and that’s it.

Attire would be matching bra panty sets, any lingerie, mens shirt and matching tie, maybe a jersey.

I would look for some textures for you backgrounds. Like a velvet or highly textured blanket, pillows, a lovely couch, a window, or just a simple bed. That’s pretty much what we worked with.

I had my makeup done but I would highly advise making sure you can make your makeup look amazing (your face should be the focus of plenty of shots) and definitely do false eyelashes if you can. It makes a huge difference.
