  • Keep it natural

You want to look like YOU! This is not the time to go buy hundreds of dollars in new makeup to try for the day. You never know how your skin will react to something new. In general, stick to matte colors that aren’t too dark or sparkly.

  • Wear blush and lipstick

This is especially important if you aren’t used to wearing a lot of makeup, because It’s very easy to look washed out on camera. Add some peachy blush to the apple of your cheeks, light pink or nude lipstick, and an extra coat of mascara! This will make your eyes pop!

Pro Tip: Do a trial run before the portrait day! Do your makeup, try on a couple outfits, go outside and have someone snap a photo with a flash and without the flash. This won’t perfectly replicate what your photographer can do, but then you’ll be able to make sure everything looks how you want it to!

  • Avoid products with SPF

Sunscreen products very easily wash you out, It’s best to just leave those products out for the day. The last thing we want is for you to have a Ghostface!

  • Use primer

  • Eye primer, foundation primer, the whole 9! Especially if you don’t have smooth skin to begin with from acne or scarring, this will make your skin appear more smooth and fresh.

Shelby|Night-time Christmas Session|Scotia

Happy New Year! Most Sunday's I aim to post a senior blog. This one is a Super Soul Sunday blog. Something that ignites my soul. I had been wanting to do a night time shoot for quite a while. I had been so slammed with shoots during the busy season, that I wanted to reward myself with a shoot just for me. : ) I did a model call, and had a lot of great girls respond back. I have noticed Shelby has been following me for a while and liking my facebook and instagram posts, so I went with her. This girl ROCKED IT! She and her mom met my lighting assistant Laura and I at Hoby's Market in Scotia. (who by the way have the best Salami Dutch Crunch sandwiches).  I wanted to try and get something with Christmas lights. We started out with some shots before dark, and then shot into the dark.We shared some laughs, and some good times, and  I am so happy with how this shoot turned out! Thank you Shelby for doing such a great job! If you are reading this and would be interested in being a model for a future model call, leave a comment below. I have many ideas I would like to try in 2018!
