Here's what we'll be prepping for your shoot:
-LOCATIONS (if shooting on location)
COUNTDOWN TO YOUR SHOOT...
3 weeks before shoot:
-Tan Lines - Please be careful with tanning leading up to your shoot and watch your sun exposure! If you already have tan lines now's the time to work on them! Read here for how...
-Now is the time for Facial peels and treatments that are more intensive and require time to heal and/or recover.
-We'll begin brainstorming styling ideas for your shoot. I'll put together a mood board and send it to you. Styling will tie together wardrobe and location with hair, makeup, right down to your nails!
2 weeks before shoot:
-Location Scouting! As we finalize our locations that will help focus our styling choices for wardrobe, hair and makeup.
1 week before shoot:
Bikini & leg waxing
-Facial or light skin treatments
2-3 days before shoot:
-Nails *Hands & Feet* (choose 1):
1. Clean & trim/file nails if needed. Remove old nail polish with remover. Scrub with nail brush to remove dirt under nails. Cover with clear top coat or leave matte and natural.
2. Get a manicure & pedicure. Choose a color from your moodboard to match your wardrobe or get a French Manicure which is timeless & sophisticated and a Clear pedicure.
-Eyebrows plucked (if you didn't wax them)
-Exfoliate body & face 2-3 days before shoot (give a little recovery time). Remember to include your lips when you exfoliate!
Use a good moisurizer in the days leading up to the shoot.
Do an at home facial or use an over-night skin treatment that will give your skin some extra love for a deep glow.
Night before Shoot:
-Shower for clean hair.
-Shave body hair (if you didn't wax)
Sleep 8 hours
Don't drink or party the night before. Avoid smoking if you can.
Day of Shoot:
-Wash face and arrive moisturized and makeup free.
-Exfoliate lips for smooth plump lips!
-Wear loose clothing to avoid marks from straps and socks etc. This will also make it easier to change after your hair and makeup is done!
Voila! You are camera ready and your photos will reflect your most timeless beauty and deep down glow!
