For men: Preparing for your photoshoot | Fernanda Kenfield Photography

Advice for men preparing for their experience. 

Short Hair: Have a hair cut a good week before our session. You want to appear crisp, but not newly shaved! 

Longer Hair: If the clean-cut isn’t your look, then a little prep and styling so you understand how it should look on the day is terrific.

Clean Shave: As well as the usual shave (use a new razor to avoid nicks) simply make sure the hard areas, like just under the jaw bone are well done too. 

Stubble: If you are going for the stubble appear, then don’t shave on the day – we need more rather than less for it show up in images.

Beard: Make sure it has a good trim – it is often worth getting a barber to do this for you. Shave any strays at the edges of the beard.

Good Sleep: I would recommend getting a good night of sleep before your session, this helps the face hugely, so no heavy drinking the night before!

Smile: Men seem to have a bit more trouble on getting an unaffected grin – women find it really effortless. Just think of something that genuinely makes you grin. If the smile happens in the mind then it happens on the face.

Clothes: You want to decide on 2 or 3 outfits for the shoot. Get them prepared ahead of time and make sure they are all wrinkle-free. Please avoid logo’s or text – that can be really distracting in photos.

Shoes and Socks: Remember to choose footwear and socks that go with your wardrobe.

Props: If you are bringing any props, instrument, sports gear, hobby stuff, get that organized in advance too. 

I hope this helps you to be ready for a fun and stress-free photo session!
