Hey Avid Artistry Fam! Boudoir season is upon us, and with it comes the age-old question: should I get a spray tan before my shoot?

We all know that feeling of confidence a sun-kissed glow can bring. But when it comes to capturing your inner goddess in boudoir photos, a spray tan can be a double-edged sword.

Let’s break down the pros and cons to help you decide what’s best for you:

Glowing for the Gram (or the Gallery):

  • Bronzed Beauty: A strategically applied spray tan can enhance your natural curves and give you a radiant, healthy look that photographs beautifully.
  • Confidence Boost: Feeling good in your own skin is key to a successful boudoir shoot. If a tan makes you feel like a million bucks, go for it!
  • Subtle Contouring: In the hands of a skilled technician, a spray tan can be used to subtly sculpt and define your figure, adding an extra layer of dimension to your photos.

Things to Consider Before You Bronze:

  • Orange You Glad You Didn’t? Self-tanners and unprofessional applications can leave you looking more “Oompa Loompa” than “ooh la la.”
  • Patchy Problems: Uneven application is a bummer, and blemishes caused by a botched tan can be a nightmare to fix in post-production.
  • The Tan Line Tango: Boudoir poses often involve strategic placement of lingerie, and let’s face it, tan lines can be a real party crasher.
  • The Staining Struggle: Beware of bronzer transfer! Spray tans can stain your clothes and bedding, so be mindful during and after the application.

The Final Brushstroke:

The decision to tan is ultimately a personal one. Here are some tips if you choose to go for the glow:

  • Pro Power: Invest in a professional spray tan artist. Their expertise can make all the difference in achieving a natural, even application.
  • Communicate Clearly: Discuss your desired shade and any contouring wishes with the technician beforehand. Don’t be afraid to show them inspiration photos!
  • Timing is Everything: Schedule your spray tan 2-3 days before your shoot. This allows the color to develop fully and any excess product to fade for a more natural look.
  • Embrace You: Remember, boudoir photography is about celebrating your unique beauty. You are a radiant goddess with or without a tan!
