We all want to look our best when investing in having our photos taken. I mean, I think we can all agree that there is no worse feeling than looking back at your photos and wishing you had worn a different outfit or done your make up a little differently. Today, I am here to give you some tips to skip out on that feeling and to help you looking your best for your upcoming session!
No more fomo on amazing photos!
Practice Makes Perfect
Just like with anything, practice makes perfect! To practice taking photos of yourself at home, prop your phone up and set a timer. It may feel weird and awkward at first, but this helps you to find the most flattering angles for your face and body and allows you the time to get comfortable in front of a camera. As a photographer, one of my biggest goals is to work to ensure that you are comfortable. This means I will be your hype woman cheering you on the whole time and instructing you and your partner to do things like bumpy piggyback rides to get some genuine smiles and laughter!
That being said, an additional tip is to find a photographer that will work hard to ensure that you are comfortable and that it is an amazing experience for you!
Wear Flattering Clothes
Now if you are reading this in preparation for your wedding, feel free to skip this one! However, if you are reading this for any other kind of session, let’s talk outfits! One of the most important tips I can give is to ensure that you wear clothes that are not only flattering but also comfortable. If you are not comfortable in what you are wearing or not feeling confident, it will show, and trust me, we don’t want that! Make sure you set time aside days before your session to try on a ton of outfits until you find the perfect one. The goal is to find something that makes you feel happy when you look at yourself in the mirror. I am always here to help as well! When you book me, I will be available to you to send outfit ideas to so I can to either narrow them down or create a custom Pinterest board for you.
