Preparing For Your Shoot

Preparing For Your Shoot


  • Focus mainly on tops, unless we have discussed doing a body shot.
  • Its usually a good idea to bring some shirts WITH collars and some WITHOUT.
  • Include some options that are solid colors (not just patterns).  
  • For any clothes than can wrinkle, bring on hangers, pressed and ready to wear (tshirts, tanks, etc are fine in a bag). If you are doing a business look, make sure your shirts and suits have been dry-cleaned and are crisp, clean and stain free.  We have a steamer on hand for touchups.  

Come with your hair blow-dried like you would wear it on a daily basis, and the stylist will go from there.  Women: The makeup artist will add product, curl, straighten or add volume, and help maintain flyaways but they do not do full blow outs.  

Show up with a clean face, if possible.  its a good idea that morning to use an exfoliator on your skin (or just scrub it really well with a washcloth) to remove dry/dead skin, and then apply a moisturizer. 

Women: you will have a chance to tell the makeup artist how you normally wear your makeup, so feel free to give her any input or bring photos of what you like.  You'll find my stylists very easy to work with and very open to collaborating to get it right for you.  She will have all of the makeup needed for every skin type, but if you have a favorite product, you are welcome to bring it. Note: The stylist does not do eyebrow plucking or shaping, so please do this ahead of time.   

Alot of clients ask about tipping the makeup stylist.  If you feel you were well taken care of, it is very much appreciated although not required or expected.  An appropriate amount can range anywhere from $5 to $25, and you can give it directly to your stylist or include with your payment. 

Looking forward to working with you!
