How to Prepare for a Model Session
The colors that photograph the best are neutrals, like blues, greys, whites, maroons, mustard yellows and greens. If you wear something bright and crazy it can be distracting, so please stay away from neon colors. We want the focus on you not your clothes. When choosing colors choose a main color and an accent color when having more that one color in your outfits.
We recommend choosing 3-4 outfits, it is great to have options. If we are planning a stylized session we can help with outfit ideas needed.
The best shoes to wear is somthing comfortable and black, brown or grey. We do not photograph feet much but if you want to color pop that could be creative.
When chooseing jewelry you want to make sure they match with the color scheme or they don't stand out. If you love bright colors and glam it is fun to color pop, if you wear grey have your jewlery a fun bright color within the scheme of your outfit. Sun hats or favorite ball caps are also a great thing to bring to the session.
MAKEUP AND HAIR
The best thing to do it keep it a natural/bold go a little more than you normally do but not to much where you don't look like yourself.
Unless we are going for a more bolder style. For hair style a little more than you normally do. Unless we are going for a more creative look.
THE DAY OF THE SESSION
Drink plenty of water.
Give yourself plenty of time to get ready so there is no stress of rushing to the shoot or being late.
Also please don't put a hair elastic on your wrist it can leave a red mark on your wrist.
Have fun this is going to be a great experience for you.
