Hair and Make Up
This really only applies to kids as obviously if you are an adult, you know what suits you best and of course you should be feeling your most fabulous for your session. However, for girls, hair is best down and loose (styled however you feel best suits them) although we may do some quick and simple hair styling change during the session. Decorative hair accessories are always good to bring along and definitely remember to pack a hairbrush for restyling between outfit changes.
Make up is a difficult area as everyone has their own style and lots of information will say that you should apply your make up more heavily for studio photography so that it shows up. However, I use quite natural lighting and so I wouldn’t go for any more than 10% more than you normally wear. I would definitely not recommend fake / spray tan before a session but again, of course if you have questions I’m happy to chat things over.
It is possible that you will be barefoot at some point during your session, particularly with kids, and hands will definitely also be on show so it is worth just having a quick check that any nail varnish is in good condition.
