Portrait Prep Guide

The portrait prep guide answers a lot of the most frequently asked questions.  It also explains the do's and don'ts leading up to your photoshoot and will ensure you will look your best!  

This guide is best for glamour, headshots & personal branding, seniors, generations, mother & daughter, girls day out and most other portrait sessions.

Boudoir Prep Guide

The boudoir prep guide includes a lot of the same information as the portrait prep guide, but the boudoir prep guide goes into additional details surrounding the special needs and questions related to a boudoir portrait session.  

This guide is best for anyone doing glamour & boudoir in their session, couples boudoir, mature boudoir or any other sexy, intimate bedroom styled portrait session.  

Next Steps

Now that you've read through the appropriate prep guide, have you starting thinking about how you want to be seen?  Do you have a vision for your portrait session?  If you don't have a clue, that's okay!  Take a look at my portfolio to get some ideas!  You can check out my portfolio here.  Another options is to create a board on Pinterest.  First, follow me on Pinterest and then create a board under your profile.  Your board can be public or private; it doesn't matter.  Just make sure to invite me to the board (this part can only be done if you're already following me).   Then, add portraits that you are drawn to for any reason.  Maybe you like the hair and makeup, clothing, background styling, lighting, or the entire thing!  That way I can see what styles you are drawn to!

Still Have Questions About Wardrobe & Set Styling?

Don't worry!  I have you covered!!  We will be having a wardrobe & design meeting where I will answer all of your questions surrounding what to wear, what to do and I'll probably answer questions you didn't even know you had yet!  Plus, we will talk about your set styling and the options available to us.  This meeting needs to be scheduled at least 2 weeks prior to your portrait session, so be on the look out for the link to schedule this meeting!  It is usually found in the email that you received with the link for the prep guide.
