Defining Your Style
Be true to yourself and pick outfits and props that really reflect the true you. My goal is to capture gorgeous portraits that show the best version of yourself. If getting all dressed up is your thing that’s great, and if it’s not, that’s okay too! Everyone if beautiful, so don’t stress about it too much! Just be yourself and have fun! Choose at least two outfits, but no more than four. Try to make sure that your outfits are different from each other, to give your images variety. For example, go with a dressier outfit, a casual outfit, and something in between. Try to choose colors that coordinate and suit your skin tone. Make sure your outfit choices mesh well with the location and season of your shoot. If your location has a lot of color, try to stick with neutral clothing. It you’re being photographed in a more neutral setting, throw in some color to stand out. Make sure all clothes are clean, wrinkle-free, and hung up a few days before your session.
Accessories are great way to add extra touches of personalization. Fun necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are great as long as they don’t distract from you! Make sure nails are freshly polished or bare. Avoid nail polish that’s too bright. Remember, shoes must be clean and stylish, too! Hair can be one of your best accessories! Consider wearing your hair down for part of your session, then adding a hat or headband, for another part, and then wearing it up or in a loose braid for some more variety.
Here’s your checklist
– Book your hair and make up appointment, if applicable
– Get some early nights, it will do wonders for you
– Drink plenty of water, it hydrates the skin and makes you look amazing
– Ensure your garments are ironed and hung up
– All accessories and props are packed and ready to go
– Allow enough time to get through the shoot
– And remember to have fun and enjoy yourself!
