Let's Talk Makeup!

1.  Be sure to start with a clean and moisturized face; nothing is prettier than beautiful skin! This is a MUST

2.  Apply your makeup near a window. The most natural light is streaming through your windows and will give you a better idea how your makeup is being applied.  This is essential to a good, even application of makeup. Your photographs are all done in natural light so this is an important step!

3.  Apply a primer! This will give you a great base and help minimized unwanted large pores, fine lines, uneven color and texture in your skin. This will help give you a smooth looking face and is  is just as important as a good foundation. 

4.  Please stay away from using mineral makeup for your portraits. Mineral Makeup is fantastic for everyday wear; however, in portraits it can give a very distinct and undesirable glow or shine. Always choose a matte finish on your face. Shiny faces look greasy and give an unfavorable glow in your portraits.

6.  Oh your eyes! Make them stand out! You should avoid shimmer or glitter. I strongly suggest using a matte neutral eye shadow  to bring out your gorgeous eyes. Trendy or dark colors can cause your images to look dated.  Golden browns looks great on everyone!

7. Don't go crazy with the eyeliner. Less can be best and try not to line your inner rim too heavily. 

8. Two coats of mascara will be perfect to put the finishing touches on those gorgeous eyes!

9. Find a neutral shade of lipstick and make sure your lipliner isn't darker than your lipstick. 

10. Makeup should be applied 25% heavier than your normal everyday wear. 

 

 

 

FAMILY GUIDE

FAMILY GUIDE


Rochester, NY Family Photographer

Think about the photography you want hanging up in your house. Do you want something posed and uncomfortable looking or do you want something more relaxed and natural? Of course I will get your standard portrait for your family but that is not what I will spend most of my time photographing. I want your children to run and play and I want them to have a genuine smile on their face. Don't worry about telling them how to smile or behave, you can leave all that up to me. This should be a relaxed and fun session for you and your family. Let's talk about what your family should do to get ready!

1. When choosing your family's outfit, try and make sure you are comfortable and that you don't put everyone in something they hate. If you never wear stiff and dressy clothes, don't put them in it. The outfits you choose matter in the outcome of your family's attitude and overall look of your portraits. ( I will send you outfit ideas and color schemes that work well together)

2. Don't choose a time that your children are tired. I shoot in the early morning and 2 hours before sunset. If you know that a family member will be tired in the evening, choose the morning session. 

3. Try not to show up with expectations. I certainly want to capture what you have in mind, but if you have little kids that want to run and can't sit still, a perfectly still and smiling picture might not be the picture you will capture at that time. I will always do my best but I think you will be surprised that the perfectly posed ones won't be your favorites in the collection. 

4. Have Fun! Smile and laugh with your family!
