I have not taken any professional pictures for a long time and over the weekend,I decided to get a few pictures taken. Preparing for a photo shoot takes some time. I had to find an exceptional photographer(Radek), book an appointment and also get an exceptional make-up artist (Toony).
Before I went for the shoot I had to figure out what look I was going for,what outfits go with that look and what to do with my hair. Last but not least,have a friend with you at the shoot to help you change,zip up clothes or even keep you smiling.
The day of the photo shoot.
9am: I went through my photo shoot list just to confirm if everything was ready and packed .Things that I always remember to carry are: baby oil, lotion, pocket tissue , wet wipes, a wide array of shoes , drinking water , wigs , heeps of accessories, the outfits to be worn and chocolate or sweets to keep me energized.
10am:This was the time when I was supposed to leave the house but my friend kept me waiting for 30 more minutes for him to pick me up. I like being on time, so I got a little pissed but nothing was going to spoil my day.
11am:The whole team met at Galleria (on time) and it was interesting to hear the photographer and make up artist say that most clients are not usually on time. I was happy to be on time.We went to the shoot location in Karen, Toony’s studio.
11:30am: The set-up was done fast and Toony was ready to transform me to a fashion goddess.
Toony is not only an amazing make-up artist but also an entertainer. She always knew how to keep my spirits up and was also my pose look book. I wanted to look different in this shoot and I think It came out perfectly.
Radek was also busy doing what he does best,taking amazing pictures.
Here are the results.
The first look was a wedding inspired look.The make up was natural and I had on a head piece that completed the look.
OUTBURST OF COLOR.
I had so much fun shooting this because we were going for a more fun and colorful look.
THE ROCK STAR.
I saw this skirt at MR Price and fell in love with it.I just had to wear it for this shoot.
3pm : After a long 3 and hours ,we got amazing shots.Although I was hungry and tired,I had fun and I cannot wait to work with them again. That was an amazing day.
