5 Things to NOT do before your Glamour Photoshoot (Part 2)

1)Your Own Makeup - because you don't think it matters.

High-definition professional cameras, lights, and lenses capture more details than you notice in real life, including more of your blemishes.


Unless you're a pro makeup artist, doing your makeup yourself works well for your daily social and business activities, but it won't be polished enough for a luxury-glamour photoshoot where your audience can stare at your photo up close for as long as they want to.


And, with all the online images of beautifully made up and manicured businesswomen, you can't afford to be left behind. You always need a professional makeup artist to achieve flawless polished results, as you see in magazines and on all luxury sites.

You're shooting your photos for your business, and you want to show your very best because your competition is.


A Pro Makeup Artist uses accurate colors and a combination of makeup pigments that make your skin glow smoothly under professional lighting. Yes, professional makeup makes all the difference and is worth the investment.



2) Wear Tight Clothes - leggings, jeans, socks, on the day of your shoot.

You want your body and skin to be as smooth as possible before your shoot, and any clothing that is not loose-fitting will leave marks on your skin that can take over an hour to disappear.

These skin marks will be noticeable in high-resolution photos, so please wear loose-fitting clothes to your shoot. Yes, they can be photoshopped out, but the more your body needs to be edited, the harder it will become to leave your skin looking natural.

The best clothes to wear is a loose sundress that you can change in and out of.

3) Buy the wrong swimwear for your shoot.

Choose a swimsuit that lays flat on your body with no excess fabric wrinkling. The material should lay flat like a tight pair of jeans.
And it needs to be suitable for your body type with colors and prints that enhance your natural skin color.

Go for solid colors that look more sophisticated than busy prints. Remember that the focus is on you and not your bikini (unless this is a bikini catalog shoot).

Tops need to have good support if you need a natural lift. If your body is not toned, do not choose a string bikini because the strings and thin straps will get lost in your skin. However, if you plan for a sexy photoshoot for a Victoria's Secret or Sports Illustrated style, I always recommend choosing Brazilian-Cut swimsuits.

Now is not the time to wear something conservative, traditional, or something you would wear with your family. Instead, choose a sexy, classy, elegant bikini. The best brands carry the best quality; they are stylish and modern, sexy, and not wide cut. No full bottom bottoms, please!

4) Buy the wrong lingerie for your body type.

Your lingerie and outfits should be ideal for your body type to best balance your look. Not all lingerie styles look great on all body types and knowing your body type can make all the difference, especially for your glamour photoshoot.


Fashion experts have created 10 categories to give you more precise recommendations when choosing your best lingerie.

5) Something last minute.

Although we will have a photoshoot schedule, leaving something you need to do for the day of your photo session is not a good idea because you may run out of time.

If you leave something you need to buy or something you still need to do for your shoot, like getting a manicure, picking up flowers, or looking for the last outfit, you can quickly run out of time or not find what you need.


Plus, It will only add stress to your already eventful day and increase the chance that you will not be fully prepared for your shoot.


You want your shoot day to be as stress-free as possible so that you can be relaxed and give your best expressions with the emotions that will resonate with your target clients.


Also, don't plan anything for right after your shoot. You don't want to stress about rushing to end your shoot because you have something to do.  

I take my time shooting each of your looks. Photography is an art and art can not be rushed.
I don't change looks until I'm sure I've captured several poses that, when edited, will look fabulous.
