Check out these tips below

1. Bring Several Outfits With You and Have them Ironed or Dry Cleaned in Advance. On the day of your shoot you should bring several options for outfits with you.   Avoid busy prints and neon colors.  The attention should be on their face, not on their clothes. Try on your outfits a few days before the shoot to make sure they are comfortable and confident in their choice of clothing.  Have the items cleaned and pressed or ironed so there are no wrinkles. Avoid over accessorizing. Necklaces should not be too long or else they risk being cut off at the bottom of the frame of the image. If you have any questions about what your child should wear, don’t hesitate to call or email Vail.  She’ll be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail.

2. Make a visit to the hair stylist. Usually we look our best when we have recently had a haircut.  Roots should be touched up as well if your child regularly colors their hair. Don’t do a drastic change. If possible, have their hair blown out and styled right before your shoot or book a hair and makeup artist do their hair in our studio.

3. Tweezers are your friends. A few days before your session you should spend some quality time with your child and a set of tweezers to make sure that their eyebrows are well-shaped. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, try going to your local salon to have their eyebrows waxed or threaded.  You will be amazed at how this simple trick really makes eyes pop in a photo. Do not tweeze or wax the morning of their session as they may end up with some redness and irritation that may not clear up in time for your photo.

4. Avoid crying before the shoot at all costs! Getting ready for a photo shoot can be stressful for children and parents alike. Try to keep your child as happy as possible before the shoot in an effort from keep them from crying before the shoot.  This is extremely important because crying causes their faces to get red and puffy, and the whites of their eyes get red as well.
