Makeup that is well done is one of the best preparations you can make for your session. It will even out skin tones and help give your photos that extra pop for a model-like look. Even if you don’t normally wear makeup or wear very little, take the time to do it well and your photos will look their best.
Makeup should only be slightly heavier than normal. Mascara should be clean and not clumpy. Avoid makeup with an SPF because it tends to create a shine. Summer shine can be controlled by using translucent powder that knocks out shine without adding additional color.
I love bringing my own makeup artist to the high school. She is an expert makeup artist and designer, she knows how to make you look excellent for photography. When I shoot models, she is always with me, her services cost only $30 per student.
Girls, I cannot say it loudly enough. Wear heels! Whether pumps or boots, dressy or casual, plain or sassy, heels really make you stand out and look glamorous.
Flats can also work well if you mix them with the right outfit.
We will not photograph you in flip-flops. Yes, they’re comfy and we all love them, but they don’t photograph well.
Guys, I don’t expect you to get as excited as the girls about shoes, but bring a variety of casual and dressier shoes. Avoid gym shoes or flip-flops since these will appear too casual when viewing your photos.
Although we try to help with hair, it is hard to know what your hair “is supposed to look like.” Make sure you like the look or let the photographer know your preferences. Better yet, have your best friend with you at the time of your session and he or she can help. Hair style is ultimately YOUR responsibility. Any hair changes during the session should be quick and simple so you have as much camera time as possible.
Bring hair spray, clips, pins, and whatever else is needed to keep your hair out of your eyes. Also bring a brush and mirror for quick hair touch-ups.
Do not make drastic changes to your hairstyle right before your photo session. This could add unneeded drama to your life. Trust Me.
Guys, If you have longer hair, make sure it will stay out of your eyes during your session. Have it trimmed if necessary. Don’t make any drastic changes like shaving your head or dying your hair around your session date (think Dennis Rodman). Otherwise you’ll look back at your photos and wonder “What the %^&* was I thinking?”
Please come to your session cleanly shaven. Retouching stubble costs extra and won’t look as good as a clean shave. If you have facial hair that your mom despises, do her a favor and shave it off. I promise it will grow back.
