Aside from wardrobe, of course, there are large differences in the type of mindset you have to go into when you’re shooting a beauty/glamour session. When a photographer is setting up for a family, engagement or senior session, she/he wants to go in with a happy, “say cheese” (so to speak), upbeat attitude.
I love for my clients to come in excited for their session and sometimes that excitement carries over into the session itself. With family photos, head-shots, sister, mother and daughter sessions, a happy go lucky attitude is wonderful. I love to see a sunny smile on the face of a senior – tho thought of their whole lives ahead of them should make them glow with joy!
For beauty and glamour photography I want to see a little mystique. That’s a really nice word for what I call it in real like, lol. I want your man, the person you’re giving these photos to to look at them and be amazed!! I do my best to get that out of my clients.
