Ask any of my clients and they’ll all tell you that I don’t allow the words, “sorry I’m so awkward” to come out of my clients mouths. I so want everyone to walk away from their shoot with a new respect for their body and love for themselves. Sometimes that’s easier said than done, but I know that if you walk into your senior pictures even if it’s with a false sense of confidence you’re likely to have a better photoshoot than if you walked in thinking, “these are going to be awful, I’m so awkward.” It just isn’t a good look for you. Now trust me when I say that I know it’s really hard to build up that confidence, even if it’s fake. While I have certain little tricks that help people relax during a senior shoot, I like to give you some ideas on how to walk into the shoot ready to go with a fab new outlook and self love. A couple of tips to help would be to play your favorite jam, bring your favorite support team, or grab your favorite drink before the shoot.
