Before Your Session

Mini Make Believe is delighted that we will be shooting together. Here is a recommended guide filled with Pre-Shoot Information:

Here are some recommendations:
1. MAKEUP & HAIR: Please arrive camera ready. Hair should be well managed to avoid as many stray hairs as possible. Please bring a hairbrush and any styling products needed.

2. BODY HAIR: Feel free to remove unwanted hair at least 24 hours before your session to avoid redness.

3. CLOTHING: Clothing should not be unintentionally ripped, heavily washed/pitted, wrinkled or ill-fitting.  It is recommended that clothes are well fitted or tailored with little wear, heavy color fade, pulls or unintentional holes.

4. POSING: Please feel free to practice before the shoot. The best inspiration for posing would be to keep slowly moving, acting natural and be fluid.

5. FACES: Be sure to exaggerate any normal expression. Great inspirational keywords for are: regal, excited, vivid, wondrous.

6. EYES: Get plenty of sleep! If possible, please try not to arrive with bags under your eyes and avoid bloodshot eyes.

7. ESCORTS: If escorts are required, up to 2 escorts may stay during the shoot. If an escort interrupts in any way, all parties will be asked to leave.
