Hey (Client first name)!

I’m getting SO excited to meet you and take some AMAZING photos of you!! 

If you’re feeling nervous at all, try to calm those fears! Nerves are totally normal and mostly disappear by the time we get a few minutes into your session! However, even if you are nervous I can ensure that you will have an amazing experience! I feel confident telling you that because I've told dozens of women the same thing. We'll take care of you from: hair and make up, a second (and third) opinion on what you should wear and posing you so meticulously that we'll even tell you how to breathe. Girl, we've got you!! Since we do all the hard work, you just get to ENJOY; these sessions are so simple, full of laughter and excitement! 

Here are some tips and tricks for you to begin prepping for your session:

  • Make sure any outstanding payments are completed!

  • Increase you water intake! Try to drink extra water all the way leading up to your shoot, it is AMAZING for your skin and will allow you to shine bright like a diamond! :)

  • Lower your salt intake & avoid alcohol if you're concerned about water weight!

  • Stay out of the sun, or wear lots of sunscreen (Please DO NOT spray tan! It does not translate well on camera!)

  • Make sure your eyebrows are groomed.

  • Make plans to shape and buff your nails, or set an appointment get a manicure. (less than $5 at a drug store to buy a file and buffer)

  • Begin to use lotion regularly or more frequently

  • Add ALL your female friends to our Facebook Group! I'm not joking, they will FLIP when they sneak a peek, if you’re up for me sharing, and the way this makes you feel is incredible Allow yourself to revel in feeling beautiful! 

  • Start STRETCHING before bed! I'm going to put you in bendy poses, and they're easier to achieve if you're properly stretched!

Keep an eye out in the next week for additional emails indicating the address for our shoot, reminders about what to bring, and more tips to prep for your shoot! Let me know if you need anything else, otherwise we'll see you (shoot date) at (shoot time). Feel free to come up to 20 minutes early, but please don't be late!

Woo! See you soon!
