Your elite session will include full hair & make up. So be ready to relax and get pampered. There is still a few things you can do to prepare for your day...
Please come with clean, dry hair.
Arrive with a clean and moisturized face & lips.
The HMUA will consult with you before she starts to get an idea of what you want. This is about you and you looking natural yet flawless. Feel free to bring in any images of make up or hair styles that you love.
We will start with a more natural look. I will have a few lip colors so that we can change it up during the session if you want.
Make SURE your nails are either done or clean. Please don't come with chipped nail polish.
Please come with your make up done the way you like it best. This is not the time to overdue it just because you are getting your photos taken. You want to look like yourself.
Do NOT use a foundation with SPF. It has reflective particles that will look bad in the light. A matte foundation is best.
Try not to use too much eyeliner as it makes the eyes look smaller and dark. Using a powder on the bottom lash line looks more natural.
Avoid shimmer and sparkle eyeshadows and cheek color, it doesn't photograph well.
Come with your hair styled the way you like it most. We can easily change it up during the session to give you variety with different outfits. Annie will have hair accessories to change it up... so all you need to do is ask. Some fun ideas are messy buns, high pony, braids, etc.
Please get all haircuts and color done a week or two before your session so that it gives your hair time to settle in.
If your hair is frizzy... that WILL show in photos, especially if the sun is from behind. If this is an issue for you, please use/bring hair product to tame hair or consider getting a smoothing treatment a week before your session. Annie can fix a few flyaways in the editing process, but can do nothing about frizzy hair.
Please make sure your nails are clean or polished nice. Do not come with chipped nail polish. There is an extra fee to fix it in editing.
Please use lip balm a few days before the session so your lips are not dry and chapped.
