Rock your photo wardrobe!
What you need:
- Choose 5 final outfit options ( 3 casual dress, 1 dressy, 1 work/conservative)
- Do whatever you need to do to find or source well fitting wardrobe. (If it’s fussy to begin with it will not transl:ate well day of photos and it will be a pain)
- Spanx or nude undergarments are HUGE, invest in good ones.
- Universal neutral jacket, loose vest; it will add versatility & texture (core neutral like a navy, cream, tan etc, denim.)
- Nude pump– I promise it’s all you need. A nude/neutral pump will be your new best friend.
- Bring simple jewelry that will not take away from YOU
- Belts, I love them and it can change an entire look. Be sure to choose the right one for you, typically stick to skinnier belt
- avoid “shiny fabrics”; if it is “shiny” on the hanger it will not look good on camera!
Prior to shoot:
- Shop 1-2 weeks prior; borrow from friends, whatever you need to do to have it FIT. Some local boutiques let you borrow wardrobe too if you can give them a big enough shoutout.
- Sketch, photo or write exact outfits so you have nothing to worry about or that you are missing goods, i.e purple shirt, gold necklace, dark denim, pump.
Find out which colors are best for you:
- Receive a color analysis (e-mail me!)
- Ask those closest to you (what colors really make me look great and pop?)
- Go through your old photos and see where you stand out, what are you wearing?
And, ladies & gents, bring your smiles, leave your worries at the door and enjoy a day dedicated to YOU.
I have been avoiding getting my pictures taken for awhile because, well, I dislike to be photographed. Being behind the lens is more fun for me but this time I had the right team and experts helping me along the way and it rocked. Thanks to photographer AJ Kane for coaching me and posing me, I am delighted with the end results!
