Dawn or Dusk hours for best lighting:
Midday lighting may be too harsh and leave a lot of room for squinting eyes, or eye shadowing, sweat, “backlit” subjects, etc. Of course midday is always doable, but for best results please remember these possibilities.
Arrive 10-15 minutes prior:
This will give you time to scope out YOUR favorite areas you may want as a backdrop, sign any last minute contracts or paperwork with SHOTS BY LC/Celene, and to finish any other preparations (toting props, etc)
Avoid drinking colored drinks:
Remembering to not allow yourself, or any children drink colored drinks before the shoot time will avoid stains on face or on clothing clothing.
Avoiding dark clothing will allow for a more bright, beautiful capture in the photos.
Be sure clothing fits to your liking, and is free of any unwanted wrinkles or stains.
Hair and Makeup:
Avoid wearing hats at the beginning of you session.
Avoid using an excess of powder products, to avoid flashback under bright lights/flash
EYES! Ladies, your eyes are often the main attraction, be sure that they pop!
