Bring clothes you feel comfortable in and express who you are. At least 3 tops in different colors and bring different options so we change them if needed. Please check below for guys and girls specifications. I’m always happy to meet for a pre-shoot consultation or you can send me photos and we can talk on the phone about possibilities.

 

Girls:

We usually shoot from informal, fun, edgier, more stylish to pretty and more formal/feminine if booking a sunset photoshoot. If you are doing a longer shoot, think different scenes! Layers and textures. Looks that are more extreme from each other, casual but also formal and beautiful, edgy and feminine, boho-chic and sporty. Please bring flats and heels! Accessories are great! Kimonos, hats, shawls, jackets, scarves…

 

Guys:

athlete, something more traditional, something edgy, outdoorsy. (solids, stripes, plaids are tricky, but we can look at what you bring). Please don’t forget to iron shirts and bring clothes on a hanger if possible. If outdoors, blue, green and aqua look great. Jeans are good. Tank top or t-shirt under a shirt looks good. Brown shirts with tan pants. If you are bringing black pants, don’t forget black shoes. If you are being photographed in your uniforms, don’t forget to bring bats, helmets, balls. Some uniforms need to be checked out in advance, so please check this out beforehand. Razor please! Clean-shaven looks better in photos.

Hair?

Hairstylist on location is available. I will send list with rates and try to find someone depending on your budget. Otherwise, I have a list of salons I can recommend near your house or the photoshoot. I have a hair/makeup packet with some of these studios. Girls, if you do your own hair, please start with it down and we can pull it up or use hats as we go along. Hair should be clean and fixed, wavy, but not overdone.

Makeup?

Makeup artist on location is available. I will send list with rates and try to find someone depending on your budget. Otherwise, I have a list of salons I can recommend near your house or the photoshoot. I have a hair/makeup packet with some of these studios. If you will do your own makeup: false eye-lashes are tricky and can change the appearance of your eyes in photos that aren’t close up. I would just wear mascara or individual lashes on corner of eyes only. Use makeup to enhance your eyes, cheeks and lips, but not too much. Heavy makeup can accentuate lines, acne and give an unnatural appearance. It’s better to remove acne in post-editing and retouching. Don’t forget your nails please! Also, please be careful with clumpy mascara, better to have little, but make lashes look natural. Read below fashion tips for detailed information on make-up.
