Recommendations for the Day of your Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot Recommendations 

Take Care of Yourself

Drink plenty of water.

Get plenty of rest the night before.

Colors
Mid-tones are nice. Avoid bright, bold colors and crazy patterns. Avoid logos on your clothing – they can be a distraction. Simple is best. We want the focus to be on you.

Neckline
Remember that a v-neck lengthens the neck and a round neckline shortens it. A nice choice, although not for everyone, is a v-neck, button down with a few buttons opened. It is best to avoid turtlenecks as they hide the neck completely.  Ladies, here are tips on selecting a flattering neckline. 

Be comfortable
Wear something that makes you feel great, comfortable, and relaxed.

Jeans vs. Pants
Base your decision on how you are going to use the final prints. Bringing multiple outfits is always an option.

Jewelry
Limit jewelry. Keep it simple so that the focus is on you.

Accessories
Bring them and we’ll shoot some images with and some images without.

Be Natural
You do not need additional or heavy make-up. Keep yourself looking natural. Natural, unusual features make others notice you, don’t try to hide them. For life’s little imperfections feel free to use make-up, but know that the final image can be retouched if desired.

Arrival
Please arrive at the location of the shoot approximately 10 minutes early to ensure enough time to make any necessary adjustments in clothing, hair or makeup. If children are involved, please bring water and a snack that can be eaten neatly to keep them happy.

Professional Stylist, Hair and Make Up
Professional fashion stylist, hair stylist and/or makeup artist, are available for all sessions and are recommended for head shot sessions. Robyn will coordinate these services for a fee of $25 or, if you wish to use your own personal stylists they are welcome to accompany you, or, Robyn can give you recommendations and you can coordinate with the stylist directly.

Just be You and Relax and Smile!
