Five Tips for Making the Most of a Brand Photography Session
✨ Book your session far enough in advance! The brand photo process, from start to finish, can take 6-10 weeks! For instance, if you book a May 1 session on April 1, we have 4 weeks to plan your session, including ordering any outfits, pulling together your signature item(s), and figuring out location logistics (if we are renting or borrowing a location other than my studio.). Then two weeks to deliver your images after your session for a 6 week minimum. I prefer to allow 6-8 weeks for planning, especially if we are doing a 2 hour or 1/2 day shoot! (More info on those here.)
✨ Invest in professional hair and makeup. Make this a date day for yourself! (Or plan a date with your significant other in the evening!)
✨ Bring a playlist that you gets you dancing – fun music makes a huge difference in the vibe of your shoot!
✨ Regardless of the length of your session, set aside the entire day for your session prep and the session itself. You’re crossing a huge item off the to do list!
✨ Don’t hold back your laughter – laughter creates the best, most natural smiles! Just a reminder that you don’t have to take yourself too seriously and there’s no such thing as too silly in front of my camera! 😉 (And if it feels weird, it most likely looks awesome!!)
