Just a few things to remember before your upcoming session!
Hands & feet should be clean and manicured. Nudes or light colors work best (less distracting).
If you are the greasy/oily type, then wash the day of the session, but hair must be completely dry. If you can get away with a day dirty, then wash the night before.
Coloring and touch ups should be handled at least 3 days prior.
IF I AM STYLING YOU
Clean & moisturized
If you have any sensitivities or allergies, please notify me immediately. You may also bring your own foundation.
Be careful with facial waxing, give yourself a few days in advance for that as well.
Think about where you're going to hang your portraits. What types of colors are on the walls or in the room? You want everything to coordinate seamlessly into your home.
What’s the vibe you’re going for? Winter, fall? Spring, summer? Fancy or casual? Lifestyle or Vogue?
Like a good movie, the wardrobe is an important character in the story as well as the location.
IF YOU ARE DOING YOUR OWN HAIR + MAKEUP
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. If you are NOT a stylist or makeup artist, it’s important to try your look and take some test shots inside and outside to see how the colors may show up.
Do not be afraid to go slightly more dramatic than a day to day look. You lose a lot of color in camera.
Pinterest and YouTube are your friends, but try to find artist with similar hair and skin tones to you or their recommendations may not look their best.
If I am there primarily for photography then I can help offer up tips or opinions, but unless you’ve booked me as your stylist, then I contractually cannot step in to do it.
