First we have Monica’s “Girl Next Door”, then we gave you her “Diva“. For the last look, I thought we could be a bit more Flirty. And for myself in particular, I really wanted to focus on getting her to move her body!
One of the hardest things to do as a photographer is to get your subject to be comfortable in front of the camera – especially when they’re half naked! I can imagine the first thing that comes to fruition is that feeling of overwhelming dread when you realize the bits and pieces you hate or what you believe to be are your “worst” parts are exposed to the ENTIRE Universe!! Well, first I want you to calm down … breatheeee. Yes, you have to be a bit braver should you decide your going to shoot in a bra an undie set or a piece of exposing lingerie BUT, after you’ve made that choice, you can leave the rest to me. The main piece of advice I give to women who are really anxious about the whole lingerie thing, is this:
“Let’s make pretend I’m not even here. And this camera, my camera, is your boyfriend, husband, or hot guy across the street who’s attention you really want to get right now. How would you flirt with him? How would you playfully reel him in?”
Once we’ve got your confidence in check, wonderful things can happen …
