Remember you’re trying to sell yourself and your lifestyle.”To help her clients figure out what characteristics of theirs to put forward, Nelson sends them tips and a questionnaire ahead of the photo shoot.
She advises them to treat the session as they would a date, and thus prep for it in a similar manner.
Lesson one: if you want your photos to look natural so you have to mix it up, changing both locations and outfits.Wear clothes (and underwear) that make you feel good, trim your beard, bring props that showcase your interests.She also has them thinking about who their current inspirations are or when they are at their happiest.We were outside a cafe and a few passers-by were giving me the odd glance, but by this point I was starting to learn what to do, laughing at my invisible friend who was slightly taller than me and to the side. After seeing the snaps on Saskia’s camera I decided I didn’t like my skirt and top combo after all. Fortunately I had one more outfit with me, so hurriedly changed so as not to waste any more time - lesson three: you want to avoid harsh sunlight in the middle of the day for the most flattering light.The photos worked immediately, and I’m so glad that I used your services.
