Do you have a photo session coming up? Whether you’ve scheduled family photos, wedding pictures, or senior portraits, you’ll be much happier with the final product if you’re well prepared beforehand. Here are 6 tips to help your photo shoot go smoothly. 

  1. Find an Ideal Location. The location is one of the most important decisions to make in preparation for a photo shoot. For starters, you need to find a place that is available and open to the public. If you are in search of an outdoor location, look for a place that has opportunities for sun and shade. Have a backup plan in case the weather is not ideal on the day of your photoshoot. For indoor locations, look for natural lighting (avoid fluorescent lights if possible) and plenty of space. 
  2. Plan your outfits. Decide what you and everyone else in your photo shoot will be wearing. If there will be group shots, it helps to have complimentary colors, but try to avoid everyone wearing the same color. Also avoid bold patterns that could take away from the subjects in the photos. If you are planning to wear multiple outfits, have them packed and ready to go, along with accessories like shoes and jewelry. 
  3. Practice your hairstyle. Plan how you want to wear your hair and practice styling it the day before. Don’t try a brand new hairstyle you’ve never tried before on the day of your photoshoot. It may not work out the way you want it to, and then you’ll be unhappy with the results. If anyone in the photoshoot needs a haircut, have that done at least a few days before in case any touch ups are necessary. Trim beards and clean up sideburns so that everyone looks neat and well groomed. 
  4. Wear makeup. Whether or not you wear makeup on a daily basis, makeup can help in a photoshoot. Flashes tend to have a wash out effect on faces, so makeup helps to define the eyes, lips, and cheeks. If anyone doesn’t want to wear makeup, especially men, at the very least a little face powder can take the shine off. 
  5. Make a shot list. If you have certain shots in mind, such as in family photos or wedding photos, make a written list. Examples for wedding photos would be: bride with her attendants, bride with parents, groom with attendants, etc. Examples for family photos might include: siblings, kids with grandparents, mother with daughter, etc. 
  6. Get a good night’s sleep. If possible, it is always best for everyone to get a good night’s sleep before a photoshoot. Being well rested prevents dark circles around the eyes and helps everyone to be in a better mood.
