A Change of Clothes
I always recommend bringing several outfits to a photoshoot. This way, your photos can look like they were from multiple shoots and you get more variety. Plus, it is a good way to be able to post more photos from your shoot on social media and have them all look different.
It doesn’t matter if your photoshoot location is at the end of a hike or right outside your car, you’re going to want to bring water. I can’t tell you how many times I have been on a shoot, forgot water, and have gotten super thirsty. Modeling can be tiring, especially in the hot sun.
If you are a makeup user, it is always a good idea to bring some makeup just for touch-ups during a shoot. Especially lipstick or chapstick, the lips are what tend to last the least amount of time. This is extremely important if you are going to do a couples shoot and plan on kissing each other.
Hair brush and Hairspray
Just like your makeup, you are going to want to touch-up your hair as well. Hair always has a mind of it’s own, so you should be prepared for it. You never know when it is going to be super windy.
A Cute Blanket
If sitting directly on the ground is not for you, bring a blanket that goes with your outfit! Blankets can be especially cute for a couple or family photoshoot with everyone sitting on it. If your shoot is during a colder season, a blanket can also be used to keep yourself warm in-between shots.
These shoes do not have to be the ones you wear in your photos, although they totally can be. Comfortable shoes can be used while walking between photo spots or just to have a break from your heels or other painful but cute shoes.
I love using props during my shoots, it can make modeling a little easier if you get nervous. Bring things that relate to the reason for you photoshoot. For example, if your graduating, bring your diploma. If you just got engaged, bring the ring box.
