Photoshoot Day Expectations | What to Expect on the Day of Your Session

Are you gearing up for a portrait session but feeling a little nervous about what to expect on the day of the shoot? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Portrait sessions can be nerve-wracking, especially if you are not familiar with the process. However, with a little preparation your portrait session will be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. Rest assured you are in good hands! We will walk you through everything you need to know about your photoshoot day expectations to help you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera!

1. Hair and Makeup

YAY! The day of your photoshoot is finally here! Before the camera starts capturing your beautiful portraits, you will arrive at our studio for hair and makeup. Hair and makeup will take approximately an hour to hour and a half. During this time, you just sit back, relax, and get pampered. Hair and makeup is an important part of the process as it not only takes away so much stress, but helps relax you too. You will likely feel more confident too, which comes across on camera and in your photos!

Locations and Outfits

While you are getting pampered with hair and makeup, we will also discuss the location of your pictures. We know where all the beautiful spots are around Southern Louisiana, but if you have a special location in mind, let us know! We will also have an outfit consultation to narrow down your outfits and ensure that you feel your best and most confident self.

Finally, Session Time!

Finally, the best part of the day – the photoshoot! We will travel to the locations selected and find the best spots that complement both your personal style and your outfits. No need to worry about finding a place to change either; I’ll have a changing tent that you can use to change outfits in between shots!

After your session

Your session is over, but your portrait experience isn’t! After the session, a sneak peek will be posted within 24 hours. Then, within 1-2 weeks your pictures will be ready! I’ll reach out a that time to schedule your viewing party where you will see your stunning portraits for the first time. We will help you select your favorite images and create your perfect final gallery! 

Knowing what to expect the day of your photoshoot eases stress, which is one of our top priorities! We want your entire portrait experience to be enjoyable and one that leaves you feeling confident.
