You're booked!You're officially a Caitlin Chrisenee Senior! Now what?
Once you book your session, I will send you a questionnaire that will help me plan out your ideal session. If you have a location or anything in particular in mind, I can't wait to hear it! If you have absolutely no clue, head over to my instagram for some ideas and together we can create your dream shoot!
picking out your outfits
You know your style best and this is your opportunity to let yourself shine! I have put together a pinterest board of my favorite outfits that photograph well but I encourage you to wear what makes you feel good. You know when you put on an outfit and you feel instantly confident? I recommend picking outfits like that. Ones that you feel comfortable in, the last thing you want to feel during your session is discomfort or feeling self conscious. You can always send me different options for my opinion!TAKE ME TO PINTEREST
PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION
Get those nails done
I feel most confident when I have my nails done. It's that little something that makes me feel beautiful. It's that little thing that can tie the whole picture together, especially when your hands are framing your face! In the senior picture my mom chose that will forever hang in her house... my hand is right in front of my face and I am so glad I had my nails done!
Practice in the mirror
This is my secret trick to coming up with new poses! By standing in the mirror and turning on some music, I can see what angles and poses are most flattering to me. There's no judgement because it's just me and my dogs! During your session, I will pose you from time to time, but the majority of the poses will come naturally from prompts I give you. So this is the perfect way to feel confident going into your session and knowing your body and what is most flattering to you.
Pamper Yourself, YOU DESERVE IT!
It's not everyday you get to have a photoshoot of you and just you so take the time to treat yourself! Whatever that means to you! Put on some lotion, get your hair and makeup done, and drink lots of water the day before!
If you don't like wearing a lot of makeup, moisturizer and chapstick can go a long way and will make your skin look it's best in the camera!
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR SESSION
- Lipgloss, lipstick, or chapstick
- Undergarments - this is the most common forgotten item!
- Comfortable shoes to walk in
- Hair brush, clips, schrunchies etc. - Don't be afraid to change up your hair mid shoot!
- An extra outfit option
- Your dog!!! and dogs treats and someone to hold your dog when you're busy posing.
- Water or snacks
AFTER YOUR SESSION
FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM
I will put up 10-15 sneak peaks within 24 hours of your shoot! Feel free to repost them and share away, I just ask that you tag @CaitlinChriseneePhotography when you do!
3 weeks after your session, I will send you an online gallery with your images edited in both color and in black and white via e-mail. You can download the images to any device, order and prints or products, and share the link with friends and family.
SHOW THOSE PICTURES OFF!
My favorite day of the week is Sunday... mainly because I don't work on Sundays but also because I love waking up to #SeniorSunday posts! I can't wait to see which shots are your favorite so make sure to tag @caitlinchriseneeseniors!
