Mindset

Have fun! I am going to make you look great and you’ll have a great time. That’s why you chose AFP.  Relax! Lorrie will completely pose you, so there’s no pressure on you to figure out how to stand or what to do with your hands. Let me know your favorite type of music and I can play it during your session to help you relax. 

Arrival

Arrive early or on time to your appointment. Showing up late means you lose camera time, and neither of us want that. If you’re coming from out of town, give yourself plenty of time to find the studio. The construction on Highway 37 between Bloomington and Martinsville can be backed up at times. 

Style

You’re unique and beautiful. Follow the guidelines but be yourself in how you dress. Be fashionable. Wear clothing that’s stylish and put a lot of thought into your choices. This is a unique opportunity and we want you to look amazing! Bring along clothes you wouldn't normally wear to school.  You will have several wardrobe changes, so bring A LOT of options. The more outfits we have to choose from, the better. This will give us flexibility in matching your clothing to backgrounds and the surroundings. Group your outfits together on hangers. Make sure items are ironed and ready to go. Make sure you’re comfortable in your clothing and that it flatters you. This will ensure that you like how you look when viewing your photos. If you’re self-conscious about your arms, avoid sleeveless or cap-sleeve shirts and tank tops, as they tend to make arms look fuller. Avoid stripes and plaid. Solid colors photograph much better than busy patterns. Bring a variety of colors and mix the level of styles. Some should be dressy, some dressy-casual, and some casual. If you’re comfortable in dresses, bring them! They photograph really well and offer a nice variety from your other casual clothing choices. We can mix dressy and casual dresses for some great looks. For the guys try to bring along a dress shirt and tie to have a more serious look!

Shoes

Ladies- We cannot say it loudly enough. Wear heels! Whether pumps or boots, dressy or casual, plain or sassy, heels really make you stand out and look glamorous. Flats can also work well if you mix them with the right outfit. For the guys- make sure your shoes are clean. Take a few minutes and wipe the dirt off of them and feel free to bring several pair!

Hair

Although I will try to help with hair, it is hard to know what your hair “is supposed to look like.” Make sure you like the look or let Lorrie know your preferences. Better yet, bring your best friend with you for the session and he or she can help. Hair style is ultimately YOUR responsibility. Any hair changes during the session should be quick and simple so you have as much camera time as possible. Bring hair spray, clips, pins, and whatever else is needed to keep your hair out of your eyes if it’s windy. Also bring a brush for quick hair touch-ups. Do not make drastic changes to your hairstyle right before your photo session. This could add unneeded drama to your life. Also, do not get your hair cut the day before the session. While you want to look your best you do not want the just walked out of the barber shop look. 

Makeup

Makeup that is well done is one of the best preparations you can make for your session. It will even out skin tones and help give your photos that extra pop for a model-like look. Even if you don’t normally wear makeup or wear very little, take the time to do it well and your photos will look their best. Makeup should only be slightly heavier than normal. Mascara should be clean and not clumpy. Avoid makeup with an SPF because it tends to create a shine. Summer shine can be controlled by using translucent powder that knocks out shine without adding additional color.

Jewelry

Keep it simple. Big, shiny jewelry can distract from the important subject, you. If you have different jewelry for different outfits, you might put each set of jewelry in a plastic baggie and hang it on the hanger with that outfit.All that being said, the proper jewelry can really complement your outfit. It’s nice to have a variety to choose from and it doesn’t hurt to bring numerous options with you.

Props

They’re great! Bring props that help show who you are. Some popular choices are:

Sports equipment (soccer ball, basketball, softball bat, etc.)

Sports uniforms

Musical instruments

Activity related items (dance, art, school clubs, etc.)

Tanning

Tan lines are a distraction and take away from your photos. We suggest you use a tanning bed and varied swimsuit tops to minimize any existing tan lines. If you choose to tan outside or in a tanning bed, don’t overdo it. We don’t want you looking orange and leathery. Try to avoid spending extended amounts of time in the sun the week before your session.

Complexion

Makeup helps a lot here, but I will retouch mild acne so please don’t be concerned about minor breakouts. I will do our best to smooth out any skin concerns.

Friends & Parents

Friends or parents are welcome and often can be a help. However, if they distract you, it may be best to meet them when the session is over. You’re welcome to have a couple of shots with a boyfriend, best friend, sibling, or parent at no extra charge.

Undergarments

Please make sure the colors of your undergarment coordinate well with your outfits and don’t show through your clothing. If you need a strapless, please bring one to your session. Tucking or moving straps will not always work or give the most pleasing look.  Check ahead of time to ensure that undergarments don’t leave unpleasing lines underneath your clothing.

Finger & Toe Nails

If you paint your nails, make sure they’re done well for your session. Chipped nail paint will show and distract from you. Avoid bright colors that will distract from you and may not work with all your outfits. Instead, opt for basic or natural tones.
