What to do before your Photoshoot


I have compiled an extensive list to help prepare and put you in the best position for getting the best possible photos. After all, I am a professional so I know what I am talking about. [insert shoulder brush]

Are you ready for it?

Are you sure?

Okay, here it is.

(Drumroll please.)


  1. Relax and Be Yourself


Okay, so apparently the list is not as extensive as I set it up to be.

Seriously though, it is that simple!


If you are still at a loss for what to do, here are a few more tips to help!

  1. Chat with your Photographer (Make sure you are on the same page for what you are looking for.)
  2. Wear something you love (Pick something that you feel amazing in.)
  3. Choose a location you love (Pick somewhere that means something to you - even if this is your own backyard.)
  4. Rest up (A good night sleep the night before will do you wonders!)
  5. Fuel up (Water and food before to keep the hanger at bay! This tip might be directed towards me...)
  6. Have fun! (The more relaxed you can be, the better the photos will be. Guaranteed.)
