Booking a shoot...
So, you have decided you want professional photos done..now what?
Do some research. Pinterest is awesome for getting ideas of what to wear, “props”, backgrounds, etc. When you begin looking for a photographer the main things to keep in mind is price, what you receive for the price and if things such as web-hosting and photo rights are included.
Chat with your photographer, see how flexible they are, see if your personalities match and if they don’t its ok to move on. Think of it like therapy, you want someone that understands you and you feel safe with so you can relax... word of mouth is great since your getting first hand experience.
Outfits….if the photographer will allow an outfit change I would HIGHLY recommend it. Adding diversity to a shoot gives you more photos to play with and they won’t all look the same.
Picking where to shoot (I will post what I believe are the best places to shoot, depending on what you want, later)…so for now think of your vision. Indoors with lighting and a backdrop? Outdoors? Full set-up?... Your photographer should have ideas on all these topics but make sure you are clear on your vision because you have to look at the photos :).
Once all that is in place... relax. Take your time with the shoot and enjoy it!!!
Hope this helps :)
