With that in mind, here are the 5 Reasons - and the before/after proof - why you don't just need, you want professional hair and makeup for your boudoir photo shoot, below.

1. Get Luxuriously Pampered and Polished

Just like you would like to sit, take time for yourself and get pampered and polished before say, a wedding or a red carpet moment or your TV premiere, same is great to get done before your boudoir photoshoot.

And I understand. Sometimes taking time for yourself is hard. But it's essential both for your well being as well as your mindset coming into getting sexy photos done.

So relax and enjoy your pampering luxury boudoir experience. Because darling, you are going to feel incredible with your fabulous hair and flawless makeup . And yes, you are so worth it and every second you get to yourself to luxuriate!

2. Be Camera Ready

Did you know? The camera is strange in that it can pick up or accentuate things the naked eye can't see - like redness, uneven skin tone, makeup that photographs differently than what you see in the mirror, etc.

And that's why working with a great professional hair and makeup artist like those on my team, who understands the camera and what looks good on camera, is key.

Armed with the right tools and knowledge, my team of all women experts are here to make you look stunning in each and every look we will be photographing - making you camera ready! Unlike other makeup applicators, they know to blend well for boudoir photos (you want your face tone to match your neck and your bosom too, don't you?), use the right tones for the lighting we will be using for your customized shoot, and create sexy hair looks that provide movement while staying sexy.

Then when you see your photos, you only see your beauty shine through.
