Webcam Session Prep Guide

We're Going on an Adventure...

 

These Webcam Sessions are to play, collaborate and feel inspired! Together we'll create images that are spontaneous, beautiful, and a documentation of this strange and stressful time in our lives (and beyond). More than that, this unique experience is for you to feel empowered, confident, and put a put smile on your face!

Here are a few things you can do to prepare for your virtual quickie...

EQUIPMENT

For me, the best combo of equipment we'll need is a fairly well lit room + a newish phone.  That being said, you can also use a laptop or iPAD/tablet as well! Facetime is ideal (or zoom),  If we're using Zoom, roughly 10 minutes before your session, I'll send you an email with a link to join me then we're ready to go!

EXPECTATIONS

It’s important to have little to no expectations about the outcome of the images, because let's be real about this whole thing: they will not be the ultra high-quality sharpness of a full in-studio session, and that's part of the point!  

The images will be what they are: grainy, moody, spontaneous, and not really meant for print.  I'm going to get artistic and sometimes weird.  This is about the experience and having a document of our time with visual souvenirs for yourself!

WARDROBE

Ultimately, wear what you want:  something silky, lacy, sexy, cozy, or nothing at all!  If you want more specific guidance, think about the location we'll be doing your webcam session. If it's your bedroom, anything from a comfy sweater and panties to complete nude will fit; if we're poolside or in the tub, then maybe a swimsuit, or a towel - or nude works there too!  Ultimately, wardrobe isn't all that important for this style of session,  so choose something you are comfortable in and makes you feel good. 

HAIR & MAKEUP

Don’t stress about how glam or not you want to get here.  Light hair & makeup is enough because (as mentioned in the expectations part above) the quality of the images won't get that detailed. I would, however, avoid strong highlight and contour based on how these types of camera grab the light.  You could (like I did for mine) use this as an excuse to pamper yourself and spend time on and for you, doing hair and makeup just because you feel like it and it makes you feel good. There's no 'rules' here. 

LOCATION

First, no, you don't need some fantasy dream home or to turbo-clean every part of your place. I'm not judging, believe me.  I can make anything work and as long as we have a few places you can stand/sit/lay (wall, bed, couch, floor, chair...) we are good to go!  Like my friend Teri once said “crap adds character” and it really, truly does.  This is about you and your life, in your space: it’s fun documentation.  At bare minimum, I'll need a window or a lamp nearby and we're going to make magic literally anywhere. 

That's it!  I can't wait to virtually see you and make something special!
