What If It Rains or Is Scheduled To Rain The Week Of My Session?
We know that weather is finicky and can change on a moment's notice. Therefore, we do not reschedule a session based on a weather forecast. Rather, we wait until the day of your session and make a determination at that time. If the weather is certain to be inclement, we will reschedule to the soonest possible date that we have available.
What About Hair And Make-Up?
Hair and Make-Up is a very important part of what makes your pictures amazing. April Johnson Photography offers Hair and Makeup for each of her clients. We want you to love your images, so enjoy your day of pampering. If you would like to add some variety to your session, just let me know and if your hair is long, we can pull it up for a few images, or can braid it to create a different look.
Having your make-up professionally done is a great idea because having "camera ready" make up will really add to making your pictures amazing. Many girls want a very "natural look" and a professional make up artist will know how to give you a natural look, while still evening out your complexion. We recommend lashes, as they will make your eyes pop. Your lip color can be natural if that's what you prefer. Bring additional make up to your session in case you need to reapply. If your session is taking place during the hot months, we recommend bringing a translucent face powder to reduce shine.
