·      7 Days before your session: Book your appointment with your Hair and Makeup artist

o   A professional artist can not only ensure that you look and feel incredible during your session, but I find that the little bit of extra pampering helps add a little more luxury to the day!

·      6 Days before your session: Focus on those pearly whites!

o   At home whitening kits work wonders and help add a little bit of confidence to that smile for photos you’ll love!

·      5 days before your session: Decide what everyone is wearing, ensure all clothing, shoes, and accessories fit and look great.

o   If you have everything decided by today, you’ll avoid the stress, pressure, and indecisive panic that will dull even the best location and lighting.

·      4 days before your session: Look at the driving distance

o   Speaking of fabulous locations, today would be a great day to ensure the driving distance from your home or hotel to the venue J Some locations are a bit longer of a drive than you’d expect with traffic!

·      3 days before your session: Relax! 

o   You need a break! J

·      2 days before your session: Eyebrow waxing, hairstyle, and makeup look decided

o   Any last minute grooming needs such as haircuts, eyebrows, eyelashes, manicures, and pedicures

·      The Day before your session: Drink lots of water, pack snacks, and discuss any bribes you’ll need to make!

o   Sometimes, a little package of tic-tacs, skittle’s, or even offering a “post-session treat” can help provide positive reinforcement for little ones to give a quick smile.

·      The big day! Woo-hoo!: Ensure you rest and relax and that your kiddos nap on time! LOL!
