Everyone needs a few good images of themselves, be it the entire family or just you taking a picture for your mother. Choosing your photographer for this session is an important factor, but preparing for the shoot is just as important.
Here are a few quick tips:
It is always a good idea to ensure you hair is looking fabulous, if you are a guy ensure your hair is neat and trimmed. For you ladies, I would recommend a to die for style, unless it is a professional headshot for your place of work. If you are going to get it coloured do that at least a week before the shoot.
Make sure your nails are trimmed, neat and tidy, you now have the perfect excuse for a manicure, guys that includes you. For ladies a French tip never dates.
I would also recommend a good exfoliator, start a week before your shoot and ensure you are moisturized.
You probably like social media, if you don’t tell us your secret, so hit Pinterest or similar, type in Portrait photos, portrait photography, family photos/photography, whatever the genre is. Put a mood board together and bring it with you, we normally know what we are doing but you may just get a few ideas. If there is something unique and different tell us about it and we will endeavor to re-create your concept, just allow enough time for any concept shoots.
