The secret behind great photos is to wear what you love, pick clothing you feel comfortable and confident in. It is a great idea to even take your outfit out for a spin before your session day! Prepare your outfit ahead of time and try to find colors, tones and patterns that are complimentary, rather than matching. Complimentary and contrasting colors are great ideas, especially neutral and earth tones. Try to avoid logos, neon colors and pinstripes.
Watch out for wrinkles! Take the time to iron and smooth out your clothing the night before your session. Be sure to take your phone and wallet out of your pockets, and remove any hair ties or bands from your wrists. I'll be carrying a bag for us during your session to hold your items.
Consider if you would like to have multiple looks and pack an outfit change! This is a great way to capture the different sides to your personality. I recommend having a more formal outfit and a casual day wear outfit - don’t forget to style the shoes! This will give you more variety in your photos and lots of options for when it comes to selecting new headshot or profile picture.
When it comes to hair and makeup there are two schools of thought.
Either way - you do YOU! I recommend doing what you are most comfortable with and besides, your smile will steal the show anyway.
I treat all my clients with tremendous care, I want you to genuinely feel comfortable and confident in my hands. I will take the time to get to know you and discover what is important to you and for your photos. No need to worry about modeling and posing, I'll will give you an easy crash course on posing and throughout our session I will give you direction and fun prompts to get you acting natural. All you need to do is smile and let the day be about you!
