A day in the life of a SuperModel!

me photoNot as easy as it sounds but oh so much fun. So many memorable moments. It all started with an idea formed while traveling. The feed back from business associates was very consistent, “You look much prettier in person” these comments left me wondering if I take very bad photos.  I decided it was time to call in a professional. The experience was amazing. I discussed the look I wanted to achieve from location to wardrobe. He scouted out locations and we set up a one on one meeting at which time he presented photos of the area he felt would achieve my desired look, he also explained to me his rates and the time frame we would need to be available. I was asked to fill out a questionnaire. It included details such as, name 3 characteristics about myself in 10 seconds and my favorite movie. This gave the photographer a glimpse into who I am; happy, fun, caring, loves life, generous. His assistant contacted local restaurants and inquired about us using the restroom for wardrobe changes and the facility for staging. She also was on location the day of the shoot talking to me while photos where being taken. This put me at ease with the camera and within minutes  I forgot we were actually on a photo shoot. Down to bringing a small vase which fresh flowers were placed in and used on the table as a prop. This amazing team took care of every detail.

My objective was to capture my love for life. I wanted to show how I am able to mix business and pleasure into every aspect of my life. The photos would be featured on my blog www.LivingMyDash.com and for additional business advertisements such as social media, flyers and magazine articles.

 Tips for achieving the look you desire

  1. Research the photographer pick one that fits your personality. Look at past work, check social media presence, set a one on one consultation and discuss details for the photo shoot.
  2. Have a vision of what you would like the final shoots to portray – serious, happy, business, casual, b&w etc
  3. Select your wardrobe –  Layout the look not too bold, coordinate your accessories, iron all the pieces. If traveling hang items surround by plastic garment bag, De-lint all pieces
  4. Nails should be manicured – both women and men. Select a neutral color so the eye is not being draw to your hands or feet
  5. Hair should be cut and colored a few days in advance giving it time to relax
  6. Pack items in a rolling small suitcase such as mirror, lint brush, towel, additional shoes, jewelry, hairspray and makeup making it easy for you to  access while shooting
  7. Pick up a straw and bottled water – this will keep you hydrated and by using a straw your lipstick will require less touch ups
  8. Price of the shoot should be discussed prior to the day of the shoot – length of time – additional cost for travel
  9. Discuss the quantity of photos you will receive in the final package and a release form
  10. Most important HAVE A BLAST! The day will fly by enjoy the moment and just relax
