How to Prepare the location?
The location for your photo shoot has been picked to suit you and your business perfectly. Let me share some tips to help you prepare your space to get the best results from your photographs.
Think of the location as a stage set, a glimpse into your business
If you are having the photoshoot indoors then give it the clean of its life, pay special attention to reflective surfaces, and hide clutter
Use props like fresh flowers, plants, books, etc
Include living props like a willing customer, your dog, or friends and family members.
Include your brand colors throughout your stage set
Bring along any branded products
I aim to CREATE an impression of space, airiness, clean sightlines, and photographs that represent your brand's personality and story.
Get at least eight hours of sleep the night before your photo shoot.
Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin and feel your best
Practice posing at home in front of a mirror
The more you practice the more you’ll feel confident on the day
Don’t forget your nails, this is a great excuse to go get a manicure
The night before, give yourself a little extra pamper so you’re feeling 100%
On the day of your photoshoot, give yourself plenty of time to get ready and avoid rushing.
