You want to look like the best version of yourself on your session day.  Here are a few tips and tricks where beauty and fashion are concerned. 

1. Makeup appears differently on camera than it does in real life. Apply your make up more liberally than you're used to. Even better connect with a local Makeup artist. We have some great recommendations!

2. Think about all the details: nails, hair, teeth, skin, & eyebrows. Use a whitening toothpaste in the weeks leading up to your session, really look after your skin and don’t pick (we do offer free blemish touch up, though), and get a manicure the day before. If you’re wearing open toes, spring for the pedi, too. 

3. Practice your hairstyle in advance and take a few selfies to see how it photographs. Try to keep your true essence and don’t wear a hairstyle that’s “not you.” For example, if you wear bangs on the regular, don’t pin them up on your photo shoot. If you always wear your hair down, keep it down on your session day. 

4. Don’t make any major changes in the weeks leading up to your session. No faux tans that have the potential to convert you to oompa loompa status,don’t go from black to bleach blonde, no major haircuts that could incite tears, etc.
