Hey guys and gals!
If you need a little inspiration... just check out your favorite online stores! You'll find tons of cool outfits to suit your personal style. You can also take a look at my pinterest boards to find even more inspiration!
~Don't forget to dress in complete outfits! Make sure you've got everything in your bag from your hat or scarf all the way down to your toes. Accessorize like nobody's business.
~Do clean up your nails. (Guys, too!) Take off that ratty old chipped polish! File those broken claws down! Stop chewing on your cuticles for goodness sake!
~Don't decide to get a hair cut the day before your session (or month depending on how slow your hair grows)! If you're thinking about changing up your 'do... please don't 'do it until after your session! It's just better that way in case you hate it! Make sure you have plenty of time for a fix!
~Do shave before your session! The 5 o'clock shadow and the day-old stubble will not be processed out of your images during editing... so unless you want it there permanently... shave it off! (And psst... guys, if you have a patchy beard that you like... trust me... shave it.)
~Do get mom and dad to approve your outfits. I don't want to have any heart attacks at the viewing session!
~Do wear some makeup. Even if you're usually au natural... please apply some light powder and mascara to even out skin tones, cut down on shine, and draw attention to your eyes. Please bring along your arsenal to change up your makeup (and hair, too!) for a different look for different outfits!
~Do wear contacts to your session instead of glasses. If you must wear your glasses, or if you'd like them in your photos, please wear contacts and pop out the lenses from your frames (you might want to take them to a pro to get this done), or purchase or borrow a pair of lens-less frames. Glare from eyeglasses is just not very pretty in photos.
~Don't come to your session unprepared!!! A few days before your session, get all of your outfits together, laid out, look at them, envision them on you, or even try them on for a friend! You can also email me quick pics of your outfits so I have an idea of what your style is! Maybe I'll have an idea for a great accessory or something that would really make your outfit pop!
