HOW DO YOU DREAM OF BEING PHOTOGRAPHED?
This is your chance to feel like a model for a day. Let's plan it to perfection.
BRING 5-6 OUTFITS
Because you have the opportunity to wear several different outfits, you can wear a variety of styles. Try and bring outfits that are unique in color and style and mood. This could be a combination of gorgeous dresses, a lovely blouse, your favorite jeans, or even lingerie.
Pay attention to textures (like lace or sequins) and necklines (like sweetheart and v-neck) to add variety to your shots.
KEEP IN MIND
Clothing that fits your shape works best for photography for any body type. Outfits that look best hug your curves. Flowing skirts are wonderful and photograph beautifully, but try and choose tops that are snug.
Avoid high-contrast patterns or prints. These can be distracting. Unless the logo or graphic is especially important to you, these should also be avoided.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Another way to add variety to your images is to look at sleeve length - something strapless, something short, something long, and maybe in-between. Or, if arms are a trouble-area for you, stay away from clothing options that emphasize your arms. An option for showing some shoulder without exposing your arms is to bring a scarf or cardigan to be draped over.
Some outfits have different undergarment requirements. If something you've brought calls for a strapless bra or a nude panty, please do bring these. Black bras are recommended under dark clothes, and nude under white.
Accessories are great for your shoot! Jewelry, hair accessories, scarves, and wraps are all great additions for your outfits.
Don't worry about shoes. Unless you are very interested in full body photographs, your feet will not be present.
HOW TO PREPARE
Several days before your photo session, fully plan and organize your outfits and accessories. Try on your outfits to make sure everything fits.
Do laundry. Remove any lint and press clothes, if needed.
Polish your jewelry to really get that sparkle.
Organize everything by outfit, and maybe pre-assemble pieces on the same hanger.
Arrive in comfortable wear. We'll look at your outfits when you arrive and plan accordingly.
