First off, if you're not comfortable with having your picture taken, THAT IS OKAY. I don't want to brag, but I'm a stud when it comes to photographing 'the awkward'.
Before your session, I will probably ask you how comfortable you are in front of the camera, and it is okay not to be!
Let me help you pick out your outfits! You can add me to your Pinterest board, jaybirdphotographyllc is my username, you can send me screenshots of shirts or dresses you have in mind, and you can even take me shopping with you!
PRACTICE, in front of a mirror! Especially if you are being photographed with your loved ones. Not only does it make you feel more confident on the day of the session, but it also helps you to learn what angles are your best! Everyone has different angles that they prefer for themselves! For me, I like to turn completely to the side and show my booty off (I know, so basic), and my husband likes to stand straight on with his arms crossed so they look bigger (hehe, cutie)! So practice what works best for you! Show off your goodies, and be PROUD!
At the start of our session, I will get you talking and laughing, allowing you to get used to the flash going off and having a camera in front of your face! So always prepare that you are probably going to have 15 minutes of getting comfortable in front of me, especially if this is our first time shooting together! But don't worry, you will warm up quick!
Other than that, you just let me do the rest of the work! All I need from you is for you to be clothed, and to FEEL confident!
