As someone who partakes in photo shoots both professionally and just for fun I’ve had my
fair share of learning moments.
I’ve underprepared and over prepared more times than I can count and both are equally stressful.
So to help others have less stress and improve the outcome and experience I’ve compiled a list of best practices you may use to prepare before your shoot!
Book your shoot! 📸
Research poses and PRACTICE in front of a mirror👯♀️
Pick and layout outfits a few days before, try on outfits day before. 👚👗👙🩲
If you’re having hair and makeup done make sure you find a few inspiration pics of other people or yourself with makeup/hair styles that you like. 👀
Wash and deep condition hair the day before, air dry or blow dry DO NOT add any additional products other than leave in conditioner. 🎀
Come to the shoot with a clean, lightly moisturized face for your makeup artist. The will thank you. 💄
Stretch the morning before because posing is a workout! 🙆♀️
Do some breathing exercises to relax 😮💨
Come in with a positive attitude 😚
I hope you found this list helpful! If you have any other tips or tricks, feel free to comment and help others make the most out of their photo shoots!
