Loving Hands

Prior to any session, most clients are focusing on what to wear, how to pose, and on occasion they will have made plans to get a facial and the ceremonial mani/pedi. I'd like to believe that through my process of creating your personal Mood Board; finding your best location and styling you, that you are encouraged to focus more on self-care.

Most of us spend a great deal of time caring for others leaving ourselves neglected. Your thought is, "I'll book myself a boudoir session and I'll feel good about myself". This idea has a lot of potential to come into fruition if all of the steps to self-care are taken leading up to the day of your session. If your hair, skin, and nails are all janky, no amount of styling will save you.

In this particular step we go over loving our hands. I, still, suggest scheduling a mani/pedi 2-3 days before your session, however, in the time leading up to your session, hopefully, these steps will inspire and motivate self-love.

You can purchase most of these products over the counter for between $4 and $15 or make your own.

Below are some quick and easy steps with DIY recipes to create your own home care for your nails and hands.

  1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Making a concoction that includes coconut, almond, and olive oil with vitamin E. Slather thick layers on your hands multiple times a day, especially after washing.
