WHAT TO WEAR?

WOMEN: 7-10 SOLID TOPS (WE WILL NOT USE THEM ALL). NO DISTRACTING PATTERNS OR VISIBLE LOGOS. NICE, OPEN NECKLINES. TANKS, SPAGHETTI STRAPS, HALTER TOPS ALL WORK NICELY. SHEER MATERIAL IS LOVELY- AVOID BAGGY CLOTHES OR ANYTHING THAT'S OVERLY EMBROIDERED (IE: PUFFY FLOWERS, ACCESSORIES, ETC).  BRING TOPS THAT COMPLEMENT YOUR EYES; FOR AN EXAMPLE, TAKE A LOOK AT THE COLOR WHEEL BELOW: IF YOUR EYES HAVE GREEN TONES, LOOK AT WHAT'S OPPOSITE GREEN TO SEE WHAT WILL MAKE THEM POP.  TRY AND AVOID NEON AND GO WITH MORE EARTHY TONES. CREAMS TEND TO WORK BETTER THAN WHITES, BUT YOU CAN BRING BOTH. BLACK IS ALWAYS A NICE DRAMATIC COLOR. NICE JEANS, COMFY SHOES. NO JEWELRY PLEASE.
  
**PLEASE WEAR OR BRING APPROPRIATE BRASSIERES: IF YOU'RE WEARING A TANK TOP, AND THE STRAPS ARE VISIBLE, YOU'LL PROBABLY WANT TO HAVE A NICE STRAPLESS BRA HANDY INSTEAD. DO NOT WEAR BRIGHTLY COLORED BRAS THAT SHOW THROUGH THE TOPS. TRY AND HAVE A NUDE BRA AVAILABLE IF POSSIBLE. IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND THINK YOU LOOK FANTASTIC IN, BUT IT CONTRADICTS EVERYTHING I SAID, BRING IT ALONG ANYWAY!

Below I have created an inspiration board that I will constantly be updating. You will see colors, shapes, hair, makeup, tops, etc. Basically anything to help you visually prepare for your shoot.

 

MEN: 7-10 SOLID TOPS (WE WILL NOT USE THEM ALL). PLEASE, NO LOGOS OR DISTRACTING PATTERNS AND AVOID BAGGY CLOTHES. DO PICK V-NECKS, TANKS, CREWS, AND OPEN NECK-LINES WHICH, PAIRED WITH BLAZERS/LIGHT COATS (OR EVEN BY THEMSELVES), CAN LOOK GREAT. SOLID BLACK OR WHITE LAYERED WITH A NICE COAT ALSO WORKS, AS DO EARTH TONES , PREFERABLY WITH TOPS THAT COMPLEMENT YOUR EYES. FOR AN EXAMPLE, TAKE A LOOK AT THE COLOR WHEEL ABOVE: IF YOUR EYES HAVE GREEN TONES, LOOK AT WHAT'S OPPOSITE GREEN TO MAKE THEM POP. COLORS THAT MATCH YOUR EYES WORK AS WELL, MAYBE WITH A GRAYISH TONE OR ONE THAT'S DEEPER/LIGHTER THAN THE ACTUAL COLOR ITSELF. TRY AND AVOID NEON COLORS, AND WEAR NICE JEANS AND COMFY SHOES.  IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND THINK YOU LOOK FANTASTIC IN BUT IT CONTRADICTS EVERYTHING I SAID, BRING IT ALONG!

Below you will find inspiration and detailed images of appropriate shirts to look for in your wardrobe or when shopping. Colors, cuts, etc. 

HAIR, SKIN, NAILS: PLEASE COME HAIR READY, UNLESS YOU'VE REQUESTED A MAKE-UP ARTIST TO STYLE YOUR HAIR FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE. IF YOU'RE NOT USING MY MAKE-UP ARTIST (ALTHOUGH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO LADIES), PLEASE KEEP THE MAKE-UP LIGHT AND NATURAL. IF YOU INSIST ON DOING IT YOURSELF, BRING IT WITH YOU FOR TOUCH UPS. GET PLENTY OF ZZZ'S THE WEEK BEFORE THE SHOOT AND STAY HYDRATED. DON'T GO ON A BOOZE BINGE SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THE SHOOT. TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN: CLEANSE, EXFOLIATE, AND MOISTURIZE! IF YOU HAVE A  BREAKOUT BEFORE THE SHOOT...HEY, IT'S NATURAL, BUT DON'T GET STRESSED OUT ABOUT IT.  RETOUCHING GOES A LONG WAY.  KEEP YOUR NAILS NATURAL AND MANICURED- USE NATURAL COLORS. IF YOUR HAIR IS CURLY, AND 90% OF THE TIME YOU WEAR IT THAT WAY, DON'T EXPERIMENT WITH STRAIGHTENING YOUR HAIR BEFORE A SHOOT. COME AS YOU ARE.. YOU SHOULD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE YOU DO ON YOUR VERY BEST DAY.
**PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR EYEBROWS HAVE BEEN WELL GROOMED BEFORE YOUR SHOOT. (MEN AND WOMEN)

AFTER YOUR SHOOT: YOU'LL RECEIVE AN E-MAIL FROM REPRODUCTIONS WITH YOUR ONLINE PROOF SHEET SESSION, WHERE YOU CAN FAVORITE AND SHARE THESE IMAGES WITH TEACHERS, FRIENDS, FAMILY, ETC. I SUGGEST GETTING  PROFESSIONAL OPINIONS ONCE YOU'VE NARROWED THE IMAGES DOWN; CASTING DIRECTORS, AGENTS, MANAGERS, AND ACTING COACHES ARE GOOD CHOICES FOR FEEDBACK.  ONCE YOU'VE NARROWED IT DOWN TO YOUR TOP 2 OR 3 CHOICES, AND ARE READY FOR RETOUCHING, REPRODUCTIONS HAS DETAILED DIRECTIONS AS TO HOW TO GO ABOUT SETTING UP A RETOUCHING APPOINTMENT AND ORDERING PHOTOS.  ONCE YOU'VE CONTACTED REPRODUCTIONS, FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND REMIND ME TO GIVE YOU THE HI-RESOLUTION IMAGES, WHICH I CAN DO VIA GOOGLE DRIVES OR DROPBOX.
