How to prep for your photo shoot.

As the big date nears, here are the top 10 things that you should do to look & feel your best for your photo shoot!

Atlanta Portrait session WEA Photography

  1. Hydration – Make sure you drink plenty of water 24 hours before the shoot,  Being hydrated will give your skin a clean healthy shine. Try to get plenty of rest the day before
  2. Unless you’re working with one of my MUA’s (Make up artist’s) for the shoot, please have your hair, makeup, and lashes done upon arrival.  
  3. Do NOT wash your hair the day of your shoot, wash it the night before. Natural oils in your hair will help your hair style ‘hold’ better. If you must wash your hair the day of, don’t show up to your session with wet or damp hair.
  4. Wear loose clothing before the shoot so you prevent marks on your skin. Avoid wearing socks, tight jeans, underwear, or a bra to the session as well because these tend to leave lines on your skin and these are difficult to remove in photos.
  5. Use clear deodorant
  6. Don’t do anything drastic to your body/skin right before the session – IF you must have a haircut, hair treatment, facial, tan, wax, or tweeze; do this several days before to avoid skin irritation.
  7. Stop tanning at least three days before your shoot. avoid looking orange for the photo session
  8. Manicure|Pedicure recommended, avoid chipped polish, jagged nails
  9. Do basic stretches daily leading up to the shoot & practice pointing your toes. 
  10. Rest! Several deep sleeps are highly recommended as it helps increase your energy and skin glow

@the.allison.lee

Wife and I ventured to Florida for a couple days for a little work and R/R.   That’s where we met with several clients – Including the lovely Allison Lee.

Since It’s Thanksgiving day as I post this, we felt that it would be appropriate to share this kitchen table boudoir set that we shot with this lovely lady.   Enjoy

Recently had two boudoir photo shoots that we did for our client’s published in November’s fashion/beauty editorial magazine Ellements

Met this NPC nationally qualified physique competitor and incredible young lady when she retained my services for an off season shoot in December.  It was obvious from the start that we had the same work ethic as we knocked out a number of outfits in a short amount of time.
We teamed up again twice in May and the results were outstanding, here’s some from the 1st shoot in May.

Had an opportunity a while back to connect with Nardia via social media.  In addition to being a lovely model, she is also a flight attendant – so we had a chance to link up for a boudoir session in Atlanta while she was laid over for the night.

Summer session w/ Devyn Atlanta

The goal of most all photographers is to set their camera’s  during a shoot, so that the image is close to immaculate straight out of the camera (SOOC).  Reason being is so that less time spent during the editing process.
This was one of those shoots were everything came together, muse, lighting, colors and vibe.    Enjoy.       For additional images from this shoot & more,  visit our fans page.

Published Editorial What is Man? In Northside Mag

Just found out that a set that I shot almost a year ago was just published in Northside magazine vol 36 – which can be purchased here http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1588332. It was supposed to come out last August however I kept getting updates that it was pushed back.
Congratulations to Chris Covington and I the accomplishment.  You may remember seeing a set that I did of Chris and his beautiful wife Ariel posted previously –  You can see it here   . After having my work featured over 100 times last year – it’s always an honor.
The editorial was titled What is Man? Inspired from Psalms 8 – 4 which reads
4what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

Be inspired today
