How to Create the Perfect Photoshoot

I get a lot of messages from women who are plus size models or would like to become a plus size model. Although Size Fabulous does not do anything as far as managing models, I do like to send these fabulous ladies to the right people or provide them with any information I know. Since it can be difficult to become successful as a plus size model, I want to give you a few tips that can help you take the best photos for your portfolio, blog post, website and etc. if you are in charge of your shoot.
  • Plan your outfits out in advance. Lay everything out and try things on to make sure all of your items compliment each other and look amazing on your body. Take a picture if you need to remember planned looks, especially if you are shooting more than one look.
  • Steam or iron your clothes. There is nothing worse than wrinkle clothes in pictures. If you are taking clothes to a location, it is best to invest in a portable steamer.
  • Make-up is up to you, however, if you are going to go full glam and you are a newbie to it get some one who is experienced to help you. If you don't want to go that route a great lipstick will do.
  • You hair should be neat. Even if the hair is meant to be a little crazy it should still look well put together.
  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Your outfit will look best where there is the most natural light. Outside is a great choice, but if you want to do it inside make sure you have proper lighting so your clothing true colors will show.
  • Your CAMERA is very important. You should invest in a camera that is capable of high quality/high resolution photos. Also invest in a tripod if you have to take the photos yourself.

As much as we would all like to pay for a bomb photoshoot, a lot of us can't. These tips will help you create your own bomb photos for whatever you need. Now smile for the camera!
