Pre-Shoot Checklist / Tips

  • Finger and toe nails should be clean and bare unless very recently painted. Cracked or peeling polish doesn’t look finished on camera and is very tough to correct in Photoshop.
  • Bring a black leotard, black dance shorts and a sports bra as a start to your outfits.
  • Bring lots of other costumes to wear, it's better to bring too much, we'll work through a lot of outfits.
  • When selecting outfits, remember solid colours are going to show better in images than patterns.
  • Make sure your clothing for the photo shoot is clean and wrinkle-free.
  • Bring hair ties, and brush so we can change up your hairstyle during the session.
  • Warm-up and stretch earlier in the day so you’ll need less time during the session.
  • Gather pictures and ideas on poses and movements you would like pictures of. Feel free to email me some inspirational pictures.
  • Make sure you're not wearing a hair tie on your wrist or any jewelry you don't want in the pictures.
