PORTRAIT

Session Guide

PREPARATION
We recommend having a good night’s sleep the evening before your shoot. 
Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water on the day of shooting.
Just before the session, we’d always advise both men and women to apply lip balm- it can be rubbed off when shooting begins (it is very common in Scotland and the UK for lips to be chapped, and can be visible in a portrait.)



WHAT TO WEAR
Come dressed as you’d like to be photographed. If you’re unsure what to wear, we recommend dressing for the job you want, or wearing what you’d wear to a job interview in your professional field.
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. 
You’re more than welcome to bring a change of shirt/ top/ jacket etc if you’d like a couple of options for your pictures.
We can advise if you’re still unsure.

TIMING
Our portrait sessions generally lasts from around 25 to 45 minutes, but we save a full 2 hours for each session.
Before starting, the photographer will take 5-10 minutes to find out exactly what you’re using your portraits for, to give you pictures best suited to your needs.
If you are short on time, let us know in advance and we can trim the whole session to 20 minutes (though we’d always recommend our full-length session where possible.)
