WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR PORTRAIT SHOOT

We’ve set aside the whole day just for you!

From the moment you arrive, we will take care of everything. Professional Hair & Makeup. Coffee, tea, spritzers, and catered healthy snacks. Your shoot is set around a co-created set of outcomes and pre-shoot discoveries about you! We will use the postures/poses that best flatter you. Then we will guide you into exquisite connections that release authentic expressions.

WARDROBE GUIDE

THIS EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT YOU, YOUR BEAUTIFUL PERSONALITY AND YOUR UNIQUE IDIOSYNCRASIES.

We recommend:

  • Simple form-fitting lines create the most complimentary body-lines.
  • Select your favorite 4-6 outfits from casual, lingerie to black-tie.
  • Include a pair of leggings and or jeans.
  • Don’t worry about your wardrobe matching the current season. 
  • Dig into your whole wardrobe or treat yourself to a fresh new garment.
  • Include your fashion pieces, signature, costume or heirloom jewelry, accessories, and even hats & scarves.
  • Select a garment in your wardrobe you rarely have the opportunity to wear (i.e. that dress you wore to the last wedding you attended).
  • Build coordinated (but not ‘matchy-matchy’), complementary and harmonious outfits for everyone included in the portrait.
  • We often use clamps to pull in here and there where needed whether it’s a garment that’s too big or too small but you love it. Bring it along anyway.

Super Helpful Tips:

  • For looking for your best ‘in camera’ choose well-fitted garments.
  • If you wear loose, tent-like garments you will add extra inches. Eeeeek!
  • Please make sure garments are clean and pressed.
  • Hang them in a garment bag and place the rest of your wardrobe in a suitcase.
  • Good control undergarments (Spanx for example) are brilliant for achieving great shapes and smooth lines.
  • Bring your toothbrush and toothpaste for after snacks.
  • Avoid logos, big patterns, and busy designs.
  • No need to worry about shoes as I never shoot below the knee unless you request it.
  • We’ve also got a few bits and pieces in our studio wardrobe.
  • Find inspiration: Colour palettes for portraits with a vintage feel, soft, muted, dreamy, and in harmony with nature.
  • Check out my wardrobe board on Pinterest  Or build your own mood board! We are happy to collaborate. 
  • Consider the tones and feel of your home decor so your printed products will feel and look harmonious in your home.
