Peter’s Professional Portrait Photo Tip: as part of your planning before shooting a new photo, make sure your hair is the way you like it. Several approaches: a new style or cut at the hair salon is a bigger undertaking. An optional approach is use your existing style and have a hair professional come to the studio to do their expertise here before the shoot. This also applies to an optional makeup artist come to the studio. No risk of outside rain, humidity, wind, or accident to undo their work. An invaluable part of what they do is stay during the shoot, view the shots, make tweaks, and be a second set of eyes on set. So it can be a good idea to visit your hair salon first, then see your photographer, not vice versa!
