photoshoot day – Periscope series

By SOLO

At this time of year, many of my clients are gearing up to have their photoshoot – a celebration of their progress, their journey, and themselves. [Read more about why a photoshoot is an awesome idea].

I decided to join in as I had to get a new set of headshots done for my coaching profile, and take those of you who wanted to come along, and show a bit of a behind-the-scenes.

The morning starts as usual – herding cats. And drinking coffee.

Because the photoshoot is scheduled in the second half of the day, I drag my butt outside for a trail run. This is epic for me – I can’t remember the last time I ran in the morning. Oh, the power of accountability!

Packing my bag for the shoot. Don’t forget wet wipes and food! And another trick – clear nail polish does wonders if your stocking rips – just put a bit of nail polish to prevent it from running further. [Am I the only one who still wears stockings?]

The before face. Lovely Mina promises a smoky eye with a nude lip.

Dramatic eyes! Don’t forget that the camera will wash you out, so ideally make-up will be heavier than usual.

My first mistake was to book hair AFTER make-up. Totally made sense in my head, but I realized it was a wrong way to go, as soon as the hair stylist started washing my hair – I had to touch up a bit of foundation around the hair line. [Gold blonde for me? What do you think? Could I pull it off?]

Now off to the studio! I look good, but omg, this took a lot of time. 🙂 Allow extra time for everything.

Meet Tim, my photographer, and get a bit of a behind-the-scenes action on the shoot!

My friend and colleague Lisanne is in the process of getting her action shots. Yoga poses create beautiful angles and lines. I love the Warrior poses, especially.

Phew! We are all done, and are heading to post-shoot celebration sushi.

It was a loooong day. I’m excited to share some of the best shots with you soon. 🙂
