We’ve heard that different make up should be worn for outdoor and indoor photo shoots. Is that true?

Melinda: From a photographer’s perspective, I think that the application of makeup can be the same for both indoor and outdoor photo shoots. For a quinceañera it would be best to wear neutral tones.

Should quinceañeras eat a hearty meal before their shoot, or go for a light snack instead?

Melinda: Eating a big meal minutes before such an important photo shoot is definitely not a good idea! A light snack should do the trick.

 

Should quinceañeras show up to the photo shoot with their hair and make up done, or can that be done on set?

Melinda: It depends. Some photographers work with their own hairstylists and makeup artists. A client is welcome to do their own hair and makeup. But it’s always best to bring this up during the consultation. Every photographer works differently.

 

What 4 tips would you say are crucial to having a successful photo shoot?

Melinda: Get enough rest the night before, a facial, a good makeup artist and hairstylist that you can trust. Relax and be yourself!

 

There you have it ladies! Make your photographer a potential BFF, skip the 4-pancake breakfast special, ease up on the make up and most importantly, say cheese and have fun!
