Where should your photo shoot take place?
This all depends on your vision of what these photos will represent. Calm, exciting, everyday mayhem. The choices are many. To help you decide before the day of the shoot, we would discuss what is called a mood board.
What should you wear?
Always something comfortable, Clothing that allows you to stand, sit and move around without the need to adjust yourself or family members constantly. If you want Fido to wear outfits, make sure he has had them on a few times before shoot day to get him comfortable.
I hate how I look in pictures, what can be done?
First off, know you are not alone. Second: Practice, yes practice. Check yourself out in the mirror and practice your smile, how you tilt your head, your eyes. Practicing this gets you comfortable with looking at yourself and realizing just how expressive you can be. This also builds confidence that will show up in your photos, making you enjoy seeing yourself.
