I’m going to be in a photoshoot! A real legitimate studio one too. With proper lighting, a great camera, a super photographer and even a dressing room with a mirror that had those stage lights around it. My excitement is barely containable on this page.
Heres the story.
To get photos and video footage for the Lifester I need professional photos that are very high quality. So I called up my friend Suki who owns a gorgeous studio in west London, asked our multi-talented marketing manager to put on her photographer hat and went to town planning and styling the shoot.
This part came easy. I’ve had a fashion blog for over 4 years so dressing up and posing for the camera is not outside of my comfort zone. Planning the hair and makeup to match the outfits, that’s easy too. Here’s a photo of the fun I’ve been having while making lists upon lists of possibilities.
The hardest thing, surprisingly was to whittle down to a possible few select shots and outfits from the thousands of combinations that were popping into my mind. Another challenge was to ensure that I was staying true to my personality because when the photos would be used to make a connection with my audience, the last thing I want them to see is a wannabe fashion blogger instead of the chilled out, happy, confident and assertive personal coach and business builder that I am.
The shoot is scheduled for next week and I am nervous and excited. Do you have any tips to help prepare for it?
