YOUR BEAUTY GUIDE TO BEING CAMERA READY FOR YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
It is a dream come true to have a photo shoot in a scenic destination far away.
Now that we are 100% in a digital age, one of our greatest acts of sharing is through visuals.
Our trips around the world, experiences of a lifetime and our most precious moments can be captured.

Once you have decided to take the jump and you have booked your photographer.
Then comes all of the little details like...
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I recommend wearing a bold color that best suits your skin tone and hair color.
Vibrant colors really add dimension and beauty to the photos. Try to stick to a solid color that also compliments the shades that your partner is wearing.
Use Pinterest for fashion ideas and inspiration.
WHAT SHOULD I DO FOR MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Having your hair and makeup done by a professional will make a huge difference in the way your photos turn out.
Not only that, it will give you confidence in front of the camera which is crucial to the outcome.
Makeup for photography is different compared to every day makeup. You want your makeup to last through your photo session and you want it to look radiant and fresh despite the outdoor weather conditions.
Going a bit bolder is wise, as professional photography will slightly mute the makeup.
There is a common misconception that the way makeup looks in person is how it will photograph.

To start, I recommend sending me a photo of yourself as well as, inspiration makeup and hair styles that you gravitate towards.
If you are not sure what you want and open to my guidance, then I am more than happy to make suggestions for you.
If you are particular and you have a clear idea of what you'd like, then please be sure to send inspiration photos.
Feel free to also send a photo of what you will be wearing. This allows us to come up with the look before you set off for your trip. It also prevents you from packing unnecessary items.
For hair styles, it's important to first choose your preference between down or up.
If you want your hair up, then think about whether you want something tight and contained for a extra sophisticated look or something loose and voluminous.
Try wearing a similar style that you can achieve on your own, just to get the idea of what it will look like.
If you'd like to wear your hair down, then go for something with a glamour wave or half up and half down.
This way if it is a windy day, your hair will move naturally and wont get tangled.
Also, hair accessories really add a special touch to the overall look.
