I just wanted to remind everyone that I have posted a whole list of ways to prepare for an upcoming portrait session on the blog in the "tips for clients" category. I will be adding to this category periodically, but here are a few more portrait session tips for now.

How to prepare for your photo session...

Practice smiling and posing in front of a mirror. Seriously! If you know how it feels to give a natural, relaxed smile versus a posed, cheesy smile then you're more likely to do it in front of the camera.

Look through magazines for posing ideas. Pay attention to how models pose and practice a posing on your own. Try to memorize a few poses that look good in the mirror.

This is not the time to try out new beauty routines or hair colors/styles. Get a slight trim, touch up your roots, or get a deep conditioning treatment if needed.

Do not wax or shave less than 3 days before your session.

Get a manicure (and pedicure if necessary), but keep your nails natural and inconspicuous.

Stay hydrated, avoid salty foods and alcohol, and get plenty of sleep in the days before the session.

Avoid extra sun in the week before your session. If you already have tan lines then plan outfits accordingly.
