1. What is my goal?
Discuss with your photographer the image you are wanting to portray: playful, professional, mysterious or sensual. According to Irina Simeonova, founder and owner of New England Fashion and Design Association, the topic of the photo shoot, the mood your trying to convey and your character will determine your color story.
2. Am I being me?
3. Am I comfortable?
4. Am I complimenting my complexion?
5. Color is key.
6. Get the right second opinion.
Before the photo shoot it doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion on your outfit. Just make sure you ask the right person. Your significant other for instance, might not be brutally honest and forget about asking your social media contacts. You want someone who knows you and is comfortable telling you what’s what. You can also seek professional help in this regard.
Ultimately you are paying for this experience and you want to get the most out of it. This isn’t a selfie you are going to post on Facebook. So don’t treat it that way. Taking some extra time to think about and plan your outfit in advance of the photo shoot will ensure you get the most out of the shoot. If you are still at a loss, I know a great stylist that would be willing to help.
