Tips for the Shoot!


The most flattering light is at sunrise or sunset

-

Please remember that even the most talented photographer with a camera can only shoot what is in front of them

-

Not everyone wants to say cheeeeese! Your facial expression is yours to decide - smiling, pouting, serious or funny

-

Blinking aside... keep your eyes open - remember to try not to squint!

-

Dress how you would like to be seen, likewise with make-up

-

Relax, have fun, remain open and dont be afraid to request different scenarios

-

Follow or request the instructions of the photographer, they are here to help, but cannot decide for you how you wish to appear in a photograph

-

Pack a pair of flat comfortable shoes, there may be occasional walking!

-

If the weather is bad, I'll do my best to reschedule within our mutual time constraints.
However, Paris in the rain is a most beautiful place.
An umbrella can add a touch of class to the photographs, and the rain itself has a great side effect of clearing the most busiest of locations so you get it all to yourself.
The clouds create beautiful flattering soft light - perfect for portraits!

-

Please arrange for any props you desire; it's Paris!
Coffee and Croissants or Strawberries and Champagne!
Berets, Balloons or Macarons!
I can help you with getting into contact with local services - just remember the logistics of carrying oversized items such as five 60" balloons!!

-

Make sure you have Uber on your phone for shoots requiring transport - often quicker than hailing a cab.
If you prefer a private car (great for getting changed in as well as transport!) I can put you in contact with a private driver.

-

Create a mood board of your favourite type and style of photograph to bring along to the shoot.
