Your photography session is a great excuse, ahem, I mean reason to pamper yourself! Just imagine… you, alone with your stylist, chatting about your life, getting loved on, and feeling beautiful.
I promise you, the more gorgeous you feel, the more gorgeous you look. And your amazing feelings about yourself, really shines through in the images.
Treat yourself to a new outfit.
Now I am the first one to say that you absolutely don’t need to spend money on new clothes, when you most likely already have the perfect outfit in your closet. However! This is a fun way to treat yourself. You can also look into online clothing rental companies as well. Rent the Runway offers a huge selection of expensive clothing that you can rent! Isn’t that super cool!
Have your make-up done.
Several years ago, I had my makeup professionally done for the first time for my own session. I felt amazing! And since then, I’ve had it done professionally every time. Pro’s know how to make you glow on camera, since they use special camera-loving products.
Get a manicure.
Your hands are such an important part of a photograph. So much is communicated through your body language, and especially hands. Make sure your nails look their best, and you’ll be ready for any shot we want to take!
Have your hair done.
It’s fun to simply gets some curls or a fun braid on the day of your session. A fresh color or cut can make you feel amazing too. Although I recommend having color services done several days prior your session, just to let it settle. Guys should do their haircuts several days prior to the session as well.
Take a bath.
Lock the doors. Turn off the phones. Make your bath a little extra, by adding essential oils, epsom salts, and some candles.
Get a massage.
I’ll be the first to admit, I really didn’t believe in massages…. Until I had a good one. Stress takes a toll on your body, in ways you may not even realize. Even a single massage session has been shown to significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels – all of which help reduce daily stress.
If you need any more reasons to pamper yourself, just call me! I can always think of a new reason to give yourself a little TLC!
