6 Things To Know Before A Portrait Session

Portrait sessions can be exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. Whether you’re getting ready for your first photoshoot or you’re a seasoned pro, think about these six things you can do to make the most of your portrait session:

1.  Communication is key

Before the session starts, it’s important to communicate with me.  I want to make sure I understand what you’re looking for in the photos, whether it’s a specific style or theme. Be honest about any insecurities or concerns you have so I can help you feel more comfortable.

2.  Bring a few outfit options

Having a few different outfit options can help you feel more confident and comfortable during the session. Make sure you choose outfits that make you feel good and reflect your personal style. Avoid wearing anything too loud, trendy or flashy. I can help you choose the best outfit.

3.  Arrive on time

Arriving on time is important to ensure that you have enough time to change into the outfit you will be wearing, plus do final hair and makeup touchups. If you’re running late, it can put stress on everyone involved and may result in less time for the actual shoot.

4. Trust your photographer

5.  Relax and have fun

6.  Pay attention to details

Details matter in photography, so pay attention to things like hair and makeup. Make sure everything is in place and looking its best before the shoot begins.

In conclusion, communication, preparation, and trust are all key when it comes to a successful portrait session. By following these tips, you’ll be able to make the most of your time with me as your photographer and create some amazing images that you’ll treasure for years to come.
