Behind the Scenes: Preparation

May 29, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Before your session, regardless of type, we talk about how you want to be photographed. What images will show you at your authentic, beautiful, and confident best? What images will best show the stories of you?

  • Beauty shoots: Are you a casual gal? Classic? Dreaming of some glamour?
  • Boudoir shoots: Are you shy? Or daring?
  • Business shoots: Are you formal? Friendly? Both?
  • Branding shoots: Are you a solopreneur who works at home? Do you have a team to spotlight? Is it a personal branding focus, or business only? There is a rather extensive list for us to go through together to develop our strategy.

Knowing these things helps us figure out your best wardrobe choices, makeup looks, locations/backdrops, lighting, and more. Knowing where and how the images will used helps me know how to photograph it: am I working for multiple images for an album, a few coordinated images for a website, or one epic wall piece or collage?

Preparation before our photo session helps ensure you get the pictures you want.
