Preparing for your day

With the COVID 19 pandemic,

You may find some services are limited or not available.  

    Please check with your beautician MUA or Stylist or call us in the first instance 

Clothing

For your portrait shoot, we recommend that you bring 3 different outfits of clothing to change into. Experience has taught us this works well and lets us create options. Your paying for the session so why not make the most of it. We recommend something formal such as an evening dress something Smart casual and jeans and a nice top. 

The number one rule is; you have to love the item of clothing. If you don’t feel comfortable in it, you won’t photograph well while wearing it.

We always get asked what clothing colours work best, We find plain pastel colours and black or white items always work well, and they tend not to date, but it can depend on your personal preference, but you must feel good wearing it, so I suggest selecting a wide variety of colours and styles. everything from t-shirts, off the shoulder tops, sweaters and light jackets can work. We recommend staying away from bold patterns, and high fashion items as these will at some point go out of fashion and will date your images.

Ladies, please don’t forget about items you may need such as the appropriate underwear for the item, such as a strapless bra if you have an off the shoulder top.

For portraits flowing feminine dresses enable us to get beautiful romantic portraits, so include these items if you have them as well as the more casual look. so if you find yourself questioning whether or not something will work then please ask or just bring it with you.  

Women's make-up.

Most of our female clients prefer to do their own make-up, however for a really special day, we can hire specialists Make-up artists for you who understand how to get you looking fabulous for the bright lights of the studio.

Please note we only offer the service of booking The MUA for you and all payments for make-up are made directly to the MUA on the day pf your photosession. 

Spray Tans

if you intend to have a spray tan, we would recommend doing so around a week before your photoshoot. This gives it time to settle and will look more realistic in your images, than one which has been done the day before your shoot. if you do spray tan have it done professionally if it's not even the camera will spot it.  

Accessories. 

Remember any accessories that you have such as hair clips, jewellery, hats and scarves Shoes,                    

Men.

Haircuts should be taken a few days before your photo shoot. Shaving is recommended unless you want the rugged look in which case you will need at least 5 days of growth  Keep clothing simple and stylish and again avoid high fashion. Please bring at least one smart and one casual outfit with you.
