Preparing for Your Professional Photoshoot
Professional photoshoots are your chance to build your brand. In today’s environment, showing who you are can be just as important as showing what you do. Beach location shoots have given our clients the perfect chance to create that balance.
To help you prepare for your location shoot, we’re sharing tips on how you can showcase the best parts of who you are.
Design Your Theme
Your shoot includes a consultation session where we discuss what you want to achieve. This is an important step in planning for your shoot and goes beyond determining what professional persona you want to showcase. Your personality as an individual is why business will want to work with you, so this is a great opportunity to reflect and determine how you want to represent yourself.
Plan Your Look
In addition to the aesthetic of your photoshoot, you’ll want to plan outfits, accessories, makeup and hair that match the vibe. You’ll want to do this at least a few weeks in advance of your shoot (our team will schedule a consultation with you to discuss). It is helpful to come prepared with some inspirational shots you have found on your own. This is a good time to think about how many outfits you will want and if you can reduce the number of changes by repeating certain clothing items or accessories with slight tweaks.
Take Care of Your Body
During the planning phase, you’ll have scheduled a date, set your aesthetic and planned your looks. One important step in preparing for your photoshoot is taking care of your body and preparing it for the day of. The week before your shoot, maintain a healthy, sodium- and starch-light diet to avoid uncomfortable bloating. We also recommend drinking plenty of water and limit alcohol intake (avoid it if possible) to help avoid dull and dry skin. Most importantly, get your beauty rest!
