CANCELLATIONS OR RESCHEDULING
Due to the nature of the Personal Branding Mini Photo Shoot Event should you be running late or need to cancel your appointment - a reschedule will NOT be available.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
WHAT TO BRING:
Please bring ONE outfit that you would like to be photographed in. Should you want to add a layer or change accessories that will be allowed. However, a complete wardrobe change from head to toe will not be feasible based on the 15-minute time allotted to each client.
Pick out your outfit in advance along with all of the accessories you plan to add (earrings, belts, bracelets, necklaces, hair pieces, and shoes), I can't tell you how many times clients have arrived with items missing that accompany an outfit.
Pro tip - lay out each outfit prior to your photo shoot and collect all of the accessories in a ziplock bag and attach to the hanger. This will make the photo shoot run much smoother and you won't be missing any key pieces. Wrinkled shirts or dresses might like cool on a Pinterest model, but the thrown together look rarely takes shape in daily life.
If a piece of clothing doesn't fit or you aren't comfortable in it at home - leave it there! There is no need to be photographed in an outfit that you really don't like. If you don't like it at home - you won't like it in the photos either.
Don't break the bank styling yourself for your photo shoot - shop your friends closet, look at consignment shops or even your mother's closet - plus, I have an ever-growing studio wardrobe you are welcome to pull outfits from.
HAIR, MAKEUP & NAILS:
Arrive to your photo shoot with your hair styled and makeup applied. Professional hair styling and makeup application is NOT included in your photo shoot, but I can contract my hair stylist and makeup artist for your photo shoot. Her rate is $100 and if you would like to book with her please let me know by June 10th.
Skip chipped or trendy nail colors - opt for a basic manicure with nude or light pink unless your signature color is a bright red - make sure your toes aren't chipped either or are a crazy shade of teal!
SKIN CARE AND TANNING:
I highly recommend avoiding a day(s) of fun in the sun prior to your photo shoot. Excessive tan lines are never fun to cover with makeup or in post-production (photoshop). Should you want to tan a natural looking alternative Tan Towels might be an option for you to consider. (can be purchased at Trans4mation Salon)
Please drink water the week of photo shoot like it's your job. Well hydrated skin is so important for photo shoot.
If you are experiencing dry or problem skin I recommend that you schedule an appointment with my friend and incredible Esthetician, Leighanne MacDonald at Trans4mation Salon.
DAY OF YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
Please arrive at the studio at your appointed time. Arriving late can cause major scheduling conflicts for everyone evolved (myself, hairstyling, makeup, and choice of locations) including lighting.
I also ask that you leave possible distractions at home (to include husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, pets, etc) that aren't part of your photo shoot.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER PHOTO SHOOT
Once your photo shoot wraps up for the day - The editing process begins after your photo shoot. Each of the photographs from your shoot will be reviewed and a collection of photographer’s favorites will be selected. Those selections are the best representation of your photo shoot and will be retouched accordingly.
A note about retouching: As we know, retouching has become a visual standard and while Photoshop has the capability to drastically change the look of a person, my goal is to enhance your stunning features. Each photograph undergoes an editing process that includes: color correction, cropping, stray hair removal, removal of imperfections in wardrobe, along with skin and eye enhancement.
VIEWING YOUR PHOTOS
You will be given access to your online gallery about two weeks after your photo shoot to view your photos. Please keep in mind that you will be receive a WEB-SIZED digital file - High resolution digital files are available for purchase at $60 per file.
