Here are some frequently asked questions…

Where do I change?

When we are shooting outdoors, my clients change in any public restrooms we can find such as park restrooms, restaurant restrooms, hotel restrooms, or our vehicles (if you’re ok with that). If we are shooting at my studio, or at an indoor location than you will have a designated private area to change.

What happens if it rains?

Overcast weather is actually ideal for shooting. If it happens to rain on the day, we’ll find an indoor spot. I have lots of ideas. Regardless, we can have a conversation the day before the shoot to see what would work best.

Will I get close up & full body shots?

I recommend having at least one close up shot along with a full body shot, and what we call in the industry ¾ length shots. That means photographs from head to mid thigh. I like to get images of you looking into the camera, so we can see directly into your eyes and also some that are more candid and not directly looking into the camera. We’ll get a variety of photos.

What can I do to prepare?

Being relaxed is the most important thing! Have your favorite music ready to listen to or I have Spotify and can get that going for us. Get a good night’s sleep before the shoot. Maybe get a haircut and style your hair in your favorite way. Women bring makeup that makes you look your best and to freshen up during the shoot. Men bring moisturizer or any items to freshen up as well, a comb is always helpful! Talk to me about brining in a hair and makeup stylist. This will really make a difference.

“I don’t think I’m photogenic”

I have heard this many times Maybe you do look attractive in photos if the right person is taking them. My job is to find your best angle and guide you through the process. That’s my specialty.

Should I practice my expression?

Absolutely yes! Models and actors do it. So you can too if your up to it! Play in front of the mirror and see what kind of smile suits you best. If that feels weird, no worries, I will be there to guide you. If you are.. I will guide you along the way for sure.
