How to get the most out
of your Session at Kim Jew
I wanted to tell you a little bit about what a session with Kim Jew Photography looks like. The first thing you should know is we love for you to have fun—that’s how we get the best photos! The following are some tips for making the most out of your photo shoot:
We Love it When You Get Involved
We love collaborating with you for your photo shoot! Feel free to get inspired by photos you see online. (Pinterest is a great resource!) Bring us your ideas and we’ll have fun with it!
Bring 5-6 outfits with you to make sure you have plenty of options. Solid colors photograph better than prints. If you have a print you really want to wear, something with vertical lines photographs well and is very slimming. Also, wear colors you like—those usually look the best on you. And look for textured fabrics—these add visual interest to the photo while keeping the focus on you! Bring accessories you love, as well. They enhance the clothing and help put your wonderful personality on display.
What Not to Wear
Busy prints take the focus away from your face and bring the eye to the clothing. Leave them at home! Also, sleeveless tops can make even the daintiest of arms appear heavier, so we don’t recommend wearing them. Finally, avoid colors that are close to your skin tone. They can make you appear washed out and takes the visual interest away from you, and we certainly don’t want that!
When you’re ready for your session, it’s important to plan ahead. Be prepared and have lots of clothing options. Make sure everyone is rested the night before. Try to avoid scheduling the session during a child’s naptime or mealtime, and bring snacks just in case. If you use incentives to keep a child interested, keep them positive! A piece of candy here or there can work wonders.
If you’re ready to bring out the best in you, call us today to schedule a session at our Eubank location (505) 293-6304. Coming up in our next email, I’ll tell you why family portraits are such a beautiful way to capture priceless memories. Bye for now, and thanks for reading!
