I squeezed this gal in last minute as graduation was approaching and her Grandparents were in town from India. What a treat it was to have 3 generations in her Senior Photos! So my new tip: Bring the Grandparents for one or two shots! You'll cherish these images forever!
Another treat at this session was we had the cap and gown which isn't always the case. So win/win here! We had such a lovely evening chatting and creating cherished memories.
And just food for thought, when preparing for your shoot, think about what you want your overall gallery to look and feel like. Who are your right now? What do you want to capture in your photos? Do you want an urban vibe? Then look at ripped jeans, cute booties and a leather or suede jacket? Want something a little more “girly” then think fitted bodice with flowy bottom on a dress. Movement adds a lot to your photos. Layers also add some interest and depth to your images. Think vests, scarves, denim or leather jackets, hats…wear something that reveals a bit of who you are!
Also think about WHERE you want to shoot around San Diego? San Diego offers so many backdrops from the beach, to something rustic, something a bit more urban. All good things to think about when we are planning your shoot.
And a few other tips I always mention are the following: haircuts at least a week before to give your hair time to relax into the cut for both guys and girls, clean nails - this doesn't mean you have to spend on manicures but clean nails are a must, and, for the ladies, think about getting your makeup done or adding a bit more than usual to add a pop! Another thing I mention to my people is that if you are going to get a spray tan, make sure you loofah and go to a reputable place so that it looks even. I actually prefer your own beautiful skin tone over the tans, but that's just me. :)
