Have you ever had a photoshoot and you wish you did more to prepare. When I first started taking pictures for my blog I would come with my outfit choice at the last minute. However, the end result was good but it could have been better.
The first photoshoot I had it was great. I was so ready until the end. I felt sick. I had a throbbing headache and I felt nausea. I realized that I drink enough water and I did not get enough rest the night before.
1 : First and foremost drink lots of water.
Think of yourself as a grape… without water you dried up raisin. You need water to keep you going through you photoshoot
2 : Dress Rehearsal : Try on your clothes.
Please make sure you try on your clothes prior to your photoshoot. I normally try on my clothes a week before and the day before the photoshoot. I want to make sure I love the outfit I’m in to kill the photoshoot.
3 : Get plenty of rest.
You do not want to have shopping bag under your eyes or lack luster. No!! So that is why I make sure I get at least 7 hrs of sleep. I want to feel great at my photoshoot
4 : Be prepare
One thing I learn from being in the girl scout was to be prepare. I love to take pictures outside.. so you know you can never plan for the weather. I
So have a umbrella..and the show must go on..
5 : Touch up bag
Have a makeup bag on deck to keep your makeup looking fresh all throughout the shoot.
6 : Bring healthy snack
Storytime- At my first photoshoot I got very sick. I was so excited that I forgot to eat and drink water before the shoot. My advice is to remember to pack a few healthy choices with you to keep your energy up during the photoshoot. Juice, trail mix, whatever you need to keep your energy up.
7 : Being and encourage friend
I love bring my friends along to a photoshoot. They give me great ideas and they keep that positive sunshine over me instead of that great cloud.
