a few things to keep in mind while planning your session...
Pick out your outfits a few days before the shoot. This will give you time to run your outfits by a trusted friend or partner, and to check for wrinkles and stains. Choose a few pieces that work in different combinations such as jackets or blazers over blouses and shirts. Remember to add earrings, necklaces, or any other accessories that work with your outfit. I generally advise a minimalist look for jewelry.
Hair and make-up is best done before arrival. Please be sure to bring any make-up and hair brushes that you may need for touch-ups. Any outfit changes such as blazers and jackets, that may be used for alternate looks, should also be with you when you arrive.
Please do not bring purses, or any other valuables to an outdoor shoot. Please be sure that cell phones are tucked out of view. I try to avoid having cell phones creating unsightly bumps in the images by having them off of my subjects, not in jacket pockets or front pockets of pants.
And lastly, my BEST advice for all Photo Sessions is always to be sure to drink plenty of water during the few days in advance of your shoot. This will help your skin to look its best in your photos!
