Top five tips to help you prepare for your photoshoot
A photoshoot with Chique is all about making you feel and look your best. However, we know that when you first get behind the camera – it can feel a bit daunting! Try not to worry though, as our friendly expert team are on hand to help and guide you every step of the way.
To give you that extra boost of confidence ahead of your photoshoot with us, we’ve pulled together our top five tips that will help you feel more prepared and camera ready!
Plan your outfits in advance
A good outfit can be the key to ensuring a successful photoshoot. This is because when we look our best, we feel our best! Ahead of your photoshoot, try to plan your outfits that you want to wear down to the last details. Plan everything including clothing and accessories such as jewellery and shoes. This will allow you to feel organised and confident ahead of your shoot as you’ve already identified the looks you want to capture. When choosing your outfits, opt for pieces that you feel confident and comfortable in, as this will help you feel more relaxed in front of the camera. Don’t forget you get three outfit changes with all our photoshoots – so we’d recommend planning four outfits in advance to ensure you’ve got a backup and a bit of variety ahead of your shoot!
Think about your poses
Our team will be on hand to guide you when it comes to posing as we know exactly what looks best on camera – we are the photography experts after all! That said, it’s always a good idea to come prepared with some ideas about poses you would like us to capture. Have a look on our social media channels to get a feel of the type of shots we do or you could even spend some time in front of the mirror to get a look and feel for the type of images and poses you like. We’d never want you to feel uncomfortable during your shoot, so planning ahead and thinking about the poses you feel relaxed doing in advance will help ensure you feel confident and comfortable during your shoot with us.
Avoid any beauty treatments
With every Chique photoshoot, you’ll receive a makeover with professional make up artists and hair stylists. Because of this, there’s a couple of things we recommend you avoid when preparing for your shoot. This includes wax treatments and fake tan. It’s best to stay clear of these for at least 3-4 days before your shoot as wax may cause redness and tan can sometimes go blotchy – neither will look great on camera! To ensure your photos come out as best as possible, leave the makeover to us and avoid beauty treatments when preparing for your shoot.
Get a good night’s sleep
Well, they don’t call it beauty sleep for no reason! The night before your shoot with us we recommend you try to get a good night’s sleep to ensure you’re feeling refreshed and ready to go on the day of your photoshoot. When we don’t get enough sleep, we can sometimes have puffy eyes and dark circles the next day which will potentially be heightened on camera. If you do struggle to get some rest the night before, try a cooling eye mask or face mask before stepping into the studio as this will brighten your skin and reduce any puffiness to leave you feel fresh faced and glowing ahead of your shoot!
Try to feel confident
If you feel uncomfortable or are lacking confidence during your shoot this will really show on camera and may result in your images not turning out the way you desired. Try to give yourself a little confidence boost ahead of your shoot – whatever that may be! Speak to a friend or partner to hype yourself up or listen to some music that makes you feel like a boss. Whatever you need to get you into the zone will be worth it! When you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin, this will shine through in your shoot and will allow us to capture stunning images. Our team are on hand throughout the day to give you a little boost if you might need it!
