3 Tips for Preparing for a Birthday Shoot

1) Theme:

It’s your birthday! Come up with a fun idea or theme for your shoot. This gives you tons of inspiration to pull from Pinterest. It also helps you with outfit and location selection. Balloons are cute, but how can we take it up a notch? What do you like to do? Where do you like to go? Have fun with it!

2)Step out of your comfort zone: 

Don’t be afraid to step out the box a little. I mean, it’s your birthday! You get to do what you want. Find a team that can really help you ENHANCE who you already are. Treat yourself to a fresh hair do, get your face beat by your fav local MUA, find a stylist that can help you nail your outfit.

 

 

3)Invest:

 It is okay to invest in yourself for your birthday! Those are the best gifts! Don’t be afraid to spend some money on this shoot. Invest in a photographer that who is just as excited about the plans for your shoot as you are. You only turn this age once! It’s okay to show up for yourself, break the internet with your amazing birthday pictures and step into this new year of life like a BOSS.
