What to wear and the portrait photography styling consultation
The styling consultation can play an important role in the success of a Signature Session and the overall client experience.
When it comes to this stage of planning, this is when things start to get fun whether…
… you have a closet full of designer duds or your drawers flow over with Target.
… you are working on becoming more minimalist in both life and wardrobe, yet you still secretly want to raid a closet full of impractical only-to-be-worn-once, fancy items.
… you are you a total clothes horse
… if your idea of dressing up is changing from sweats into a pair of jeans.
This is a time for us to start getting to know each other. I’ll offer you a cup of tea. We’ll talk wardrobe and a little hair and make-up. I’ll ask you questions. You’ll ask me questions.
With 3 – 5 wardrobe changes, I’ll encourage you to consider your different facets. To consider who you are today, who you aspire to be, and who you dream of being, perhaps? A mix of casual, chic, and epic, maybe? How do you want to be remembered by your loved ones?
I encourage you to bring in some images you are inspired by. Follow me on Pinterest and we can even start a private shared board to start sharing ideas if you’d like.
No worries if you don’t have time for all that though! How I work with each client will take on its own shape.
During our time you’ll be able to check out my studio wardrobe and we’ll both see what captures your fancy. You may try on a couple of things, so we can figure out what will best work for you.
You will leave your consultation with some easy styling tips up your sleeve as well as both a Style and Beauty Guide with more inspiring images, timelines, and advice. I’ll follow up our meeting with an email with some more links and ideas for shopping or renting something for your shoot.
And for those moments when you come face to face with your closet and everything becomes a big blur, I’m only a phone call or text away.
When you are ready to talk about your own styling pre-shoot consultation give me a call! I love working with clients to plan their Signature Sessions! It’s a wonderful chance to get to know each other, get excited, and eased into the process.
Planning is the key to a fun and relaxing shoot!
