You have a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear! Or so you think. You don’t have to stress over buying a bunch of new things. Chances are you have great items in your closet already. If not, don’t concern yourself with spending a ton of money. A simple white camisole that shows off your collarbone works just fine.

Here are some guidelines for preparing for your photoshoot:

Choose dresses and shirts that are fitted & feminine. Avoid bold prints, but think of including lots of textures like lace, leather, silk, feathers, and glitter. Find tops with interesting necklines and various sleeve lengths.

I ask each client to bring the following:

  •  All black outfit or dress
  • All white or pale neutral outfit (white, cream, silver, pale rose, gold). You can pair this with jeans if you like.
  • An outfit with color – Preferably jewel tones.
  • A wildcard outfit-The outfit you would wear to your birthday party or New Year’s Eve party
  • Strapless bra or tube top
  • blazer, shrug, shawl or jacket of any color or style (this is an often overlooked essential)
  • A pair of natural looking false eyelashes
  • Coordinating bracelets, necklaces, earrings & accessories
  • Shoes will not be photographed, so no need to bring several options of those
  • If you have sensitive skin, please bring your own make-up for our artist to apply
  • If you’re taking group photos, make sure at least one of these looks coordinate

Before the session:

  • Visit the hair salon or have fun with a wig. Choose a style you love. If possible, a hairstyle with soft, flowing curls that frame the face is preferred.
  • Paint your nails & toes. Clear is fine.
  • Shave anything that needs shaving.
  • Starting a week before the shoot drink lots of water, avoid added sugar, reduce your intake of starchy foods.

Here are a few samples I’ve collected from my Pinterest Board.
