You're nervous, I get it! Very few people are amped to get their photo taken (< awkward blog post alert).
But let's talk through a session to relieve some anxiety over getting the best pics ever!
First things first, I delete the stinkers.
Take comfort in knowing that even if I deliver an image that you don't LOVE how you look in it, I did love it. I did love how you looked. Isn't that kind of amazing? Others see you in a new light. Let the fact that someone else sees you differently be a gift! You never know what photograph will speak to you today or in 5 years, cherish them all for the memories.
And communicate if you want something specific hidden - before the shoot and maybe even before booking!
So you see, we're looking out for you! When you're getting your photo taken, remember that we're on the same team and I'm aiming to get the very best results just as much as you are! And if there's one last piece of advice I can offer, find a photographer who makes you feel at ease. Talk on the phone, meet for a beer, FaceTime with some tea and chat to feel out their vibe. If you don't mesh, don't fret and go find a better fit.
