Once you have your theme in mind you can begin to think of the details like your hair, makeup, tan, nails, accessories, outfits and overall colours. We work with makeup artists and hairstylists in case you don't want to look after those details yourself. Practice your facial expressions and poses in front of the mirror – it may sound strange but you will be happy you did. All of these details add to the success of your images (plus they are part of the fun!).
Depending on the length of the shoot, you may want to pack some food so you stay on top of your healthy eating. Avoid tight fitting clothing that may leave marks on your skin. We have weights in the studio so you can pump up before we actually start taking photographs.
Always bring more accessories and outfits then you expect to wear because you never know what might pop up and you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity. If you are doing your own makeup, or having it done before you arrive, bring your hair spray and your makeup bag for touchups.
We often ask you to sign a model release so that we can use the photographs for studio display, website and social media use, but this is totally optional and don't feel pressured into signing it. Most clients, however, are flattered and look forward to seeing their photos displayed. On the day of your shoot you are welcome to bring someone with you.
Lastly, have fun! If anything you will gain experience in front of the camera and end up with some fabulous shots of all your hard work that you can show your kids (or grand-kids)!
