“Mother’s Day Mini Sessions” April 29, 2017
Melo and Me Photography is offering a mini session event to celebrate Motherhood to honor how amazing it really is. After all, what would the world be without Moms? Total chaos. Yeah, I don’t even want to think about it. This is the perfect gift for the Mom who’s been feeling unappreciated and doubtful lately. Ask any mom in the world what she values most, and I’m willing to bet it’s the time and memories she shares with her family.
Time slots: 7:30am, 8:00am, 5:30pm, 6:00pm, 6:30pm
Take the time to get to know your photographer and I promise you will feel more relaxed and comfortable, than those who meet their photographer for the first time on session day. You can do this by scheduling a consultation, which is just a fancy way of saying we get to know a little bit about each other.
Bring yourself, as in BE YOURSELF 🙂
If you don’t remember anything else from this post, please remember this –be yourself. This includes being true to yourself and who you are. Trust me, if you’re not being yourself at the session, it shows. It’s okay to step outside of your comfort zone, but you definitely don’t want to display serious facial expressions when you’re normally smiling or goofing off. In order to get great photographs, it’s important that you’re relaxed and comfortable at the session.
Plan ahead of time.
It’s important that you plan for the session ahead of time. Waiting until the last minute to book a photographer, could leave you in the position of not having photographs to document this important time in your life. And, in the event that you are able to book a photographer at the last minute, there’s still so much planning that goes into a session. Trust me you don’t want to scramble through boutiques or stores trying to find outfits for your session with no guidance at all.
Dress to impress.
Clothes should be fitted prior to the day of your session, so that you know exactly how they fit. Make sure to get rid of the wrinkles prior to the session. Blouses and bottoms should hang neatly on hangers. Avoiding clothing with large logos or graphics because they take away from the person in the photo.
Don’t worry…be happy.
Last minute pimple show up the night before or day of your session, that’s okay! I’ll take care of your acne and blemishes so there’s no need to worry. All you have to do is show up to the session and have a great time -I’ll take care of the rest!
Professional hair and makeup artist.
A professional hair and makeup artist can completely transform your senior session. They are trained professionals and know how to cater to your needs. You’ll have less time to stress and worry about your hair or makeup, and more time to focus on being pampered like a queen!
*Bonus: schedule a makeup and/or hair trial a few weeks before scheduled session. We recommend professionals like:
Sports equipment, jersey or uniforms, musical instruments, and books are just a few props that can really tie your personality into the session. They can also add meaning and originality to your session. No props? Not a problem, you’ll rock your session either way.
Get a good night’s rest.
Often overlooked, many seniors tend to forget to get a good night’s rest; however, it’s more important than you think. The more rest you’ve had, the more time you’ll have to enjoy and have a great time at your session. You’re also more likely to feel comfortable and have more time to focus on the details.
Take care of the necessities.
This may go without saying for some, but it’s worth it to include anyway:
Clean shave. Unless of course, hairy legs and lots of stub are your thing.
Guys, it’s best to get a haircut at least 6-8 days prior to the session.
Bring a hairbrush or comb. It works great for fly-aways and touch-ups.
Nails should be manicured, while skin should be moisturized.
