Checklist for a Photography Session

October 02, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

The BIG SESSION is coming soon!

WHAT TO WEAR!  WHAT TO BRING!  I'M FREAKING OUT!

I suggest taking a deep breath and relax!  We've got you covered!

For my consultations before my session, I always share my "checklist" for a successful photo session with Kelly Stark Photography!  Have no fear--  I was a girl scout and I normally come prepared.  But, there are a few things you can bring that might help take the pressure of you (and your family) to be prepared and enjoy the session even MORE than expected!

Checklist for A Photography Session:

  1. Hair brush or hair spray in case you need to tame the mane
  2. Touch up make up (if needed)
  3. Water--  you'll be smiling a lot and your mouth needs hydration after all the smiles and laughing!
  4. Contacts/Glasses:  A lot of people have their sunglasses on from driving to a session--  take them off unless you normally wear them!  Also, if you wear glasses every day--  bring them.  There can sometimes be glare due to the time of day a session take place, but I try to angle your face so you won't see that glare in your images.  If you can take off the glasses and still see, you might consider leaving them at home or taking them off a few times during the session. When in doubt, wear contacts!
  5. Washcloth or rag to touch up any sweat on your face during the "comfortable" Texas heat.  Sorry, I try to book the best temps of the day!
  6. Wardrobe:  Wear what you feel amazing in! Your photos will be better because you are comfortable and the best version of YOU!
  7. Shoes: If you are wearing heels for the session, bring flats or comfortable shoes incase we have to walk on uneven ground or walk a bit from location to location
  8. Bug Spray: You never know when mosquitos will be out.  I suggest applying right before the session starts so it lasts (and spray your guests, too!)
  9. No cell phones:  Save the selfies and pictures for ME!  I PROMISE to take the most flattering, beautiful images of you and your family that puts any cell phone to shame!  (Even the #Iphone11, I promise!)  Enjoy the experience with me---  cell phone can actually create shadows with flash that can be seen in my created images!
  10. KIDS:  If you have kids (or even husbands) attending a session, give them snacks!  Feed them before and make sure you take a good bathroom break before the session!  But, bring snacks for the littles!  It helps with keep them happy and bribery goes a LONG way!  
  11. Bring the lovey!  Do you have a favorite stuffed animal for your child that is guaranteed to make them smile!  Bring Mr. Snuggles with you!  Not only is Kelly Stark absolutely hilarious and I speak "child," but Mr. Snuggles might help make the big scary camera seen a little less intimidating!
  12. Change of clothes for after the session:  I can't guarantee a rainless, dirtless session.  I try!  But if a session includes a seated session on a blanket or on natural ground, you might have dirt, leaves, bugs or remnants of our fun session on your clothes.  Most adults are fine afterwards, but kids can get a little antsy with stuff on their outfits! 

I think that covers it!  Don't worry about practicing your model face before a session.  I like natural, happy people in front of my lens.  Heck, I'll even take a serious face if you let me.  Just come to a session celebrating where you are in life and who you are with.  That's really all that matters, right?
