One of the major keys to a successful shoot and the most beautiful portraits you have ever seen of yourself is PREPARATION!! I have put together this guide to help eliminate the stress of preparing for your shoot so it will be an experience you’ll never forget!
Schedule an appointment with your salon if you need to touch up your roots, freshen up your color, get a hair treatment to smooth out your hair, or get a trim to get rid of split ends.
*Avoid any drastic hair cuts or color changes before your shoot!
Wash your hair the night before or the morning of your shoot and come with dry hair.
Gently exfoliate your skin and face a day or two before your shoot. Drinking lots of water, moisturizing, and eating
healthy, nutritious meals will give your skin a healthy glow. Don’t worry about bruises, stretch marks, scars, or cellulite. We do skin smoothing in post processing to give your skin a beautiful, even glow. But prepping the “canvas” definitely helps! Come to your shoot with a clean, fresh, moisturized face.
Shave, wax, or trim any unwanted hair before your shoot. Wax, trim, or thread your eyebrows. Waxing should be done a couple of days before your session so that your skin isn’t irritated.
Tanning is great for a bronzy glow, but we don’t recommend it unless you prefer yourself with a tan or if you have harsh tan lines from being out in the sun. We do not recommend getting a spray tan done or using self-tanner if this is your first time getting a tan.
If you would like, get a Manicure & Pedicure a day or two before your shoot. Pick a color that will go well with all your outfits or go with a French tip or neutral color.
Pinterest is a great tool in preparing for your shoot. You can create a secret Pinterest board and pin poses, outfits, and hair and makeup ideas that you like. It will also help YOU figure out what styles you are drawn to and what outfits you like! You can also share your board with us before your shoot
