1. Should I use a hair and make up team for my session?
Yes! Having your hair and make up done for your session can be a a confidence booster! It is a way to have a team of experts help bring out the best version of you! A professional hair and make up team can help bring our creative vision together ! If you are interested in using a hair and make up team please make sure to contact them separately. You will be responsible for scheduling hair and make up times with your schedule. Contact link for Blushworthy here
2. What should I wear to my session? How many outfits can I bring?
Outfits are SO important for senior pictures but the #1 most important thing for a senior session is be YOURSELF! Its fun as new trends can be keep in mind to stay true to yourself! Bring outfits that compliment your style and who you are! My personal favorite outfits are casual graphic tshirts, boyfriend style jeans, barefoot, layers, maxi dresses and flowy skirts! My big no-nos are neon colors, bright whites, tight fitted dresses and shorts, exposed bralettes.
As far as how many outfits I recommend styling 3-4 outfits but bringing 2 back ups! Lots of accessories and shoes!
3. Should I bring someone to my session?
YES! As long as you are comfortable posing around them and can be your full self! Being a parent my self I think your senior photos are something you should be able to do with your parent or guardian! A best friend or boyfriend always makes a great prop too ;)
4. Where are we going to take my photos ?
This is by far my number one asked question after we schedule a session! A location can determine a theme of a photo session! Picking a location much like your outfits needs to represent you! Don't like the sand or being dirty? Then the beach probably isn't for you! Your location should reflect you in every way! I have multiple location routes I love to use, after scheduling a date for your session we will discus your vision and I will help make it a reality! *Sessions scheduled downtown are an additional $30
5. How long does it take to get my photos?
My first senior gallery I delivered that night! All 120 digital files! It was amazing in my head thats what I thought it would always be! With Hey Pretty Baby's amazing growth photo sessions take anywhere from 2-4 weeks for full edits. You will receive 5-8 preview photos to upload to social media within 2 days of our session! Since there is a higher number of photos delivered it takes slightly longer to perfect every image for you!
6. What props should I bring?
Props props props! I love goodies! If you follow my work you know I LOVE CONFETTI! I also love glitter! I love clients who bring along their four legged animal friends as well! Sometimes in a session less can be more! Using our location and nature can be a perfect prop! I am not the biggest fan of chalk board and large over sized chairs. Simple stools or balloons are a great creative way to express a vision!
7 .What type of Camera do you use?
I started with a canon 60D and it was my baby for 7 years! I recently switched to the Canon 6D and my life is forever changed!
8. What is your favorite lens?
Such a tough question buuut my 50 1.2 L is my baby
9. What do you edit your photos with?
I use Adobe Lightroom for all my photos, I use custom presets that can be found in my store!
10. What time will our session be?
The best natural light is the first two hours of sun and the last two. We will schedule our session 2 hours before sunset or after sunrise!
