If you are still on the fence of what to wear, you can always send me pics of what you have and I will be happy to help. You are also welcome to come over the studio to either try my available outfits or to bring your own and mix with mine to help you find the perfect ''combination'' for your session.

 

Props 

•If you are a fan of the boho style I have a peacock chair (my most popular prop for maternity and senior sessions) and it can be requested by you to be used at the day of your session with no additional charges. If you have any interest just let me know and we will arrange that.


• Now would if you like to add some glam to your session or even fresh  flowers? If it's either a vintage mirror, a couch, a bouquet or if you have a set up in mind that you would like to execute but don't have all the props I highly recommend:   Diedra's with Every Last Detail

She has awesome pieces. Her rentals starts at $25.

If you would like to add confetti to your session please consider the biodegradable ones.

Purchase at least a couple ''Dual Events'' or ''Single Event'' as they last longer.

The week before your session

  •  If you’re including a pet, give them a bath!

  • Apply chap stick all week long. Chapped lips are impossible to photoshop – so this goes for you too guys!!

Details

Eye Glasses

Glasses can be a challenge in photographs often causing unwanted glaring and blocking important details of your eyes. If your comfortable I may ask you to remove your glasses for some shots. 

Tan Lines

Sunburns and spray tans. In the week leading up to your session be cognizant of your sun exposure. Fixing sun burns and harsh tan lines take extensive editing and require an extra retouching fee.

 

Nails

Please be sure that your nails are manicured, nothing fancy though just because your hands will make their way into the photos.

Appearance 

Wear your makeup 20% darker than what you would normally wear. It will help add depth and contouring.

Make sure your nails are manicured nothing fancy though just because your hands will make their way into the detail photos.

Two days before your session

  • All 4 outfits should be picked out

  • All clothing ironed or steamed and put onto hangers

  • Undergarments for each outfit cleaned and packed in your bag

  • Accessories and shoes for each outfit packed in your bag

  • Nail appointment completed or happening soon (avoid acrylics, neon colors or chipped polish!)

  • Guys – if you’re going to shave, do it at least a couple nights before your session to give time for any redness to go away.
