Have you ever been to a photo shoot and didn’t know what to do or say? The anticipation of having a portrait taken of yourself or your family is always exciting. However, that excitement can quickly turn into frustration when the portrait looks nothing like the photo you fell in love with on the screen, or the experience itself isn’t as smooth as you expected.
This blog hopes to give you reminders and information to help guide you to having the most successful photoshoot possible.
#1 Look for inspiration online
Your photographer is a pro, but chances are they don't know exactly how you want to look in your pictures. A great way to get your ideas across is by doing a little research beforehand.
#2 Choose the right outfit
This one seems obvious, but it can't be stressed enough! You want to make sure you're wearing something flattering and comfortable, so you feel confident when the camera starts clicking away.
#3 Show off your best features
When you're posing for photos, no one wants to see a stiff mannequin-like statue staring back at them—show some personality! Also, try out different poses until you find one that feels most natural for what looks good on camera too--you don't want anything distracting from those amazing facial expressions or gorgeous eyes.
Lastly, you may not have ever considered the importance of having a photographer who understands your vision and helps you achieve it, but it's one of the most important elements of a successful photoshoot. Get your pre-shoot to post-shoot needs met by Firmin’s Photos
