Ten Reasons to Book your Mod Bettie Portrait Session
You’ve really wanted to do something for yourself lately. Something as different, dynamic, and adventurous as you are.
You can’t stop thinking about snapping a picture of you that shows off your inner beauty and femininity. You’re so sick of seeing all those pictures of you on Facebook—stiff smile, awkward angle, bad lighting.
You work so hard taking care of everyone on the entire planet except yourself. You’re ready to to destress by getting dolled up. You’ve earned a day of pampering.
You honestly can’t remember the last time you felt AND looked beautiful—and that scares the hell out of you.
You don’t think you’re photogenic. (We can’t wait to prove you wrong.)
You need a helping hand (and lens) to find your confidence & carefree femininity again.
You’ll finally have a reason to wear THAT dress. (You know which one we’re talkin’ about.)
You’ve been hunting for that one-of-a-kind gift for someone special.
You’re stuck in a style rut, and want to know what you’d look like with an expertly-applied smokey eye.
You’ve always wondered what it feels like to be a true model for a day.
You know you need to let loose. Laugh. Be yourself. Dance around in your skivvies. And get it in pictures so you always have a reminder that you’re beautiful, as you are, right now in this moment.
THE 4 STEPS TO PREPARING
FOR YOUR SHOOT:
Research, research, research. It’s time to put your sleuthing skills to the test and learn everything you can about your photographer. Take the time to go over their images, noticing the different styles of retouching, lighting, and posing so you can compare with other photographers and find the style that suits you best.
Schedule a pre-shoot consult. This is huuuuge, and a big step in establishing trust & connection with your photographer. Ask to see the studio, look at more images, talk about your kids, and your favorite subject in the 3rd grade. (That last one is optional.) Plan on spending 30 minutes to an hour on your consult.
Glam it up. If you go with a studio that doesn’t offer hair and makeup before the shoot, make sure to book your own. If you look your best, you’ll feel your best—which’ll make the entire photoshoot go silky smooth.
More clothes. (As far as we’re concerned, “more clothes” are the magic words.) For your shoot, always bring more outfits than you’re told to. Each photographer (and stylist, depending on the studio), will help you decide what works best with the design of each studio set.
