What happens before, during and after a photoshoot?

August 24, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I decided to write this post because I wanted to show people what happens during and after a normal photoshoot in my studio.  I hear all too often, women not wanting to have their photos taken because "I don't like my arms", "I never look good in photos", You wouldn't want me in front of your camera, it might break!"....and it goes on and on. Even the slimmest of people have areas they don't like.

When your photographed in my studio, I have a professional team of makeup artists that will accentuate those parts of you that you love and as a photographer, it is my job to minimise those things you don't like so much.  Posing and directing you so you look your absolute best is the aim so that you have the very best photos of yourself you could ever have. Sometimes though, a little tweaking in photoshop is used just to polish things off.  I never go crazy though, you should still look like you. 

So when you arrive, we go through your outfits & accessories to get an idea of how you want to be photographed and the makeup artist can get a feeling of how to do your makeup and hair to co-ordinate with your style.  A glass of wine to calm your nerves and then its into hair and makeup; this takes roughly an hour depending on your hairstyle and while your in getting pampered, I'm getting the studio ready for your first outfit.

During the shoot, I will direct you, you don't have to worry that you don't know what your doing...that's my job. I will guide you throughout the process and with plenty of breaks, my aim is to have you really enjoying the process, not just the final result. You go home with the pricelist and start to think about how you would like to display your beautiful prints or are you more of an album type of person...the choice is yours.

A few weeks later you come in for your "reveal" session.  We go through the images I took on the day and you choose the ones you love.  It usually only takes a week from then and your beautiful photos are ready for collection or delivery. 

If you would like to book a session or would like any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch via email kylee@Wilomark.com or 02 62804220.
