No Worries, this is fun!! We’re going to make you look great and you’ll have a great time. That’s why your looking into Aphrodite Videography $ Studio's.
Relax. We like to think that we can be cool and fun to be with!. Plus, we help you with posing, so there’s no pressure on you.
Arrive early or on time to your appointment. Showing up late means you lose camera time, and we don’t want that.
If you’re coming from out of town, give yourself plenty of time to find your way around.
You’re are one of a kind. Follow our guidelines but be yourself in how you dress.
Be fashionable. Wear clothing that’s stylish and put a lot of thought into your choices. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we want you to look your best!
We give you unlimited wardrobe changes, so bring A LOT of options. The more outfits we have to choose from, the better. This will give us flexibility in matching your clothing to backgrounds and the surroundings.
Group your outfits together on hangers. Make sure items are ironed and ready to go.
Plan on changing quickly. The faster you change, the more time we have to photograph and the more photo choices you’ll have later.
Make sure you’re comfortable in your clothing and that it flatters you.
Quick Note: If you’re self-conscious about your arms, avoid sleeveless or cap-sleeve shirts and tank tops, as they tend to make arms look fuller.
Avoid stripes and plaid. Solid colors photograph much better than busy patterns.
Bring a variety of colors and mix the level of styles. Some should be dressy, some dressy-casual, and some casual.
If you’re comfortable in dresses, bring them! They photograph really well and offer a nice variety from your other casual clothing choices. We can mix dressy and casual dresses for some great looks.
We cannot say it loudly enough. Wear heels! Whether pumps or boots, dressy or casual, plain or sassy, heels really make you stand out and look glamorous.
Flats can also work well if you mix them with the right outfit.
Although we try to help with hair, it is hard to know what your hair “is supposed to look like.” Make sure you like the look or let the photographer know your preferences. Bring your best friend or your mother/ step mom with you for the session and he or she can help. Hair style is ultimately YOUR responsibility.
Bring hair spray, clips, pins, and whatever else is needed to keep your hair out of your eyes if it’s windy. Also bring a brush and mirror for quick hair touch-ups.
Do not make drastic changes to your hairstyle right before your photo session. This could add unneeded drama to your life.
Makeup that is well done is one of the best preparations you can make for your session. It will even out skin tones and help give your photos that extra pop for a model-like look. Even if you don’t normally wear makeup or wear very little, take the time to do it well and your photos will look their best.
Makeup should only be slightly heavier than normal. Mascara should be clean and not clumpy. Avoid makeup with an SPF because it tends to create a shine. Summer shine can be controlled by using translucent powder that knocks out shine without adding additional color.
They’re great! Bring props that help show who you are. Some popular choices are:
Don’t worry about clouds because they actually even out the light and make for ideal shooting conditions. But falling rain is an issue and we will have to reschedule.
Please make sure the colors of your undergarment coordinate well with your outfits and don’t show through your clothing. If you need a strapless, please bring one to your session. Tucking or moving straps will not always work or give the most pleasing look. Check ahead of time to ensure that undergarments don’t leave unpleasing lines underneath your clothing.
