Stafford Boudoir Photographer | To Tan or Not To Tan, a Spray Tan Experiment

Being a boudoir photographer is awesome. I get to meet a lot of amazing women who trust me to make them feel wonderful about themselves. I get a lot of the same questions, can you fix my tan lines, photoshop my stretch marks, make me look more tan?

I was recently at a networking event and I once again ran into Jasa of 2bTan. She had mentioned wanting to offer my boudies special deals on spray tans for their sessions but I was hesitant. I had heard lots of bad things in my boudoir groups, and had experienced someone who had one and it did not go well. Jasa explained why various photographers had these experiences and we decided to test it out.

The lovely Christa was our experimental boudie. A great model and boudie addict, she was totally on board! We met at 2bTan in Stafford where Jasa herself sprayed Christa and handed over a bag of goodies to maximize her tan. She came in to the studio three days later. YES! This is the biggest thing! Your tan looks best 3-4 days AFTER you get it sprayed! Before that, it’s still setting. Here are a couple of the images from her shoot with her tan compared to how she normally looks.

Now, I want to say something before I share these images. Christa typically has porcelain skin, which is absolutely gorgeous. This is not a slight against her normal skin tone, as I adore it. This is showing you the difference and you can make the decision of which you’d prefer for your own photos.

Overall, Christa having a spray tan was a success. It shortened editing time, she looks like she just spent the week laying on a beach, and it really showed the perks of having a spray tan for your boudie session.

I highly recommend Jasa at 2bTan!
