How to prepare for your Photoshoot

You may have browsed through The Experience page on my website and learned that when you book your own portrait session you get to experience a makeover on the day of your photoshoot.

But what can you do before you arrive to prepare for your upcoming session?

Here are a few things you might want to consider:

A Few Weeks Before:

- If you regularly color your hair, consider having your stylist touch up your roots before the big day.

- Make sure you have your outfits selected, and/or get your shopping done (you can also borrow from a friend!) For more detailed information about wardrobe, you can read this post here.

The Week Before:

- Nail Prep! Make sure you either have bare nails (no chipped polish), or are getting a fresh manicure. This is something that is easy to overlook, but making sure your nails look fab can really tie in a look.

The Day/Night Before:

-Steam and prep your wardrobe. Make sure everything you're bringing along is ready to go!

- Hydrate and get your beauty sleep! When you come in bright eyed, energized and well rested, it shows in your photographs!

- Moisturize your skin and lips- this provides the perfect base for any makeup we'll be applying.

Morning of:

- Enjoy a hearty breakfast. You've got a few hours of pampering and a photo-session ahead of you!

And that's it! You're ready to come in and have your beautiful portraits created!
