It depends on what kind of photoshoot Misty is doing for you. A few universal tips are:
Here are some things you can do before your photoshoot that will help you look your best for the big day!
Misty can absolutely photoshop you! But for best results, do a little grooming before seeing me. For example: pluck those pesky nose hairs, get your eyebrows waxed, put on a little makeup, etc.
I can't do 30 lbs, but how about 20?
Believe it or not, having proper posture can actually make you look 10 lbs skinner! Just remember to stand up tall and roll those shoulders back!
As for the other 10 lbs, Misty can take care of that in Photoshop for you!
Getting the kiddos to cooperate can be one of the most stressful parts of family pictures, trust me I know! But here are some things you can do as a parent to make the process go a little more smooth:
I get a lot of husbands (and occasionally wives) who absolutely dread going to a professional family portrait session. But at the end of our time together, they say something along the lines of "That was quick!" or "That actually wasn't too bad!" They tend to think that it's going to be this huge, time-consuming ordeal. But in reality, it doesn't have to be! They might even have FUN!
Absolutely! Misty always takes photos according to your vision. I would suggest bringing certain props that will allow people to see who you are! For example, real estate agents could bring a for sale sign, doctors could bring a stethoscope, etc. We can take the standard headshots using a white background, but we can also take fun ones with props to give you more flexibility and options!
Misty definitely has a bunch of suggestions! Here are some of our favorite locations:
You are NOT limited to these locations above. You and Misty can brainstorm about any ideas you might have, and together you can come up with a location that best fits you and your personality!
There definitely is something to be said about the consistency of having the same profile picture on each of your social media accounts. But, there is nothing wrong with using a different picture for different accounts! Some social media platforms have more of a fun vibe (like Twitter), and some have a more professional vibe (like LinkedIn). As long as the pictures were all taken around the same time, you should be fine! Misty can definitely give you some options to play with!
