9 Top Tips for your Portrait Sessions

  1. Keep it REAL …do you really want images with those cheesy smiles?
  2. RELAX and be yourself...let the photographer capture the dynamics of your personality
  3. Have FUN during the session… be Playful with the photographer…as they say “dance like no one is watching”
  4. Interact with each other during the session – let the photographer capture those emotive encounters between you and your loved ones
  5. Wear clothes that express your personality (Fashion can sometimes prove to be a regrettable choice)
  6. Give consideration to your wardrobe selections for everyone. Don’t all wear conflicting patterns, or colours that scream at each other in the family shots
  7. Take props that tell who you are……… hats, jewellery, scarfs, musical instruments….
  8. Have professional makeup done – they know how to have you “camera ready”..with no shine!
  9. Postpone your photography shoot if anyone is unwell…our eyes mirror how we feel!
