Pre Shoot Check List

Excellent, so we're going to have a portrait photography session. I hope you're looking forward to it, as much as I am. I promise you, we're going to have lots of fun!

Now that you've seen samples of my Portrait Photography, whether it's at the studio used or on Location. I would like you to consider a few things before we get together on the day of the shoot. From experience, I find these pointers will help us get things going more smoothly.
I want you to think of it as friends getting together to take a few photographs. Ultimately it is YOU that I want to capture. Some of your and my favorite photos have been of when I catch you when you least expect it.

Given our time together during the photo shoot, I want you to be relaxed, comfortable, radiant and above all, just your wonderful self. As others see you.


Rest well before the shoot. After all we don't want bags under your eyes.


Do nourish and hydrate before and throughout the shoot. Especially on location in our wonderful sunny Southern Californian climate.


Consider what you want to portray and dress accordingly. You can change as many times as you like during our session together.


Consider how you want to look in the photographs. I always advise you to have fun in front of your mirror at home before the shoot. I try not to pose you, as I find it projected. I want you to be yourself. However, I will give posing suggestions as we go along.


If you wear makeup, take care to make sure it's a bit more toned down than usual, as photographs exaggerate colours. Sure I can do post processing but let's get it right in the camera first.


If you want an unshaven look, let's take them first.


If you're a baby. Have your milk, change your nappy and get some rest. Pacifiers are not provided to you, nor to your parents if you're groggy.


At the studio we have our space to do as we will but on location be mindful of your environment and surroundings. People and obstacles will be all around us. Site restrictions may apply and we'll have to comply. So I ask you to please take my directions promptly.
