Hair & Makeup:

  • If you have hired the hair and makeup artist make sure to bring your own foundation, and powder, all other items will be supplied. The artist takes approximately 45 to an hour. Come with a clean face, you make arrive in your foundation and powder but you should not have on any other makeup if artist has to remove makeup, there will be an additional charge.
  • If you are doing your own hair and makeup make sure to bring supplies with you to touch up during the shoot.

Props to bring:

Props can really help you during the shoot, not only do they give you something to play with to add some fun but they can also distract your confused hands from getting lost on what to do with a pose.

Prop ideas are things like: Sporting equipment like footballs and baseball bats, music instruments like guitars and microphones, umbrellas, rifles and guns, flags, etc.
