Hello hello! This resource is for those wondering what to bring to their photoshoot at Chloe Jackman Photography Studio! Hopefully, these tips and tricks will help formulate some studio photography ideas before you arrive for your day of glam.
It’s all about you! Personality photos aren’t necessarily for work or your Christmas cards. You’re not wearing a uniform or outfit you only wear once a year. Personality shoots are about you jiving with yourself and me capture it.
What to wear: The outfits that are most you. The outfits you feel most comfortable and confident in. Always bring a few outfits (3-4 different looks/color options). If you are looking to get your face done, hire a professional! Makeup info here!
I’ve got it: Make-up mirror, dressing room, clothing steamer, hangers.
I am the QUEEN of fun family photos. I don’t really do matching Disneyland sweaters, stuffy portraits above the fireplace kind of photos, but specialize in the sneakers & jeans candid shots of your family being a family. Or faux fur minx and super swaggy sets if that’s more your family’s vibe.

First of all, I don’t own that boring marbled-blue backdrop that all your grade school portraits are taken with or a basic brick wall as a backdrop. We go bright orange, green, purple, black, or will cruise around the neighborhood for urban backdrops. There is no reason for your headshots to be stuffy! You can still be professional and have a personality.
What to bring: Any tools of the trade. Laptop for bloggers, microphones for podcasters, headphones for DJs, that sort of thing.
What to wear: Your “uniform.” That could mean a polo, apron and name tag, if that’s the photo you need. It could also be the clothes you want to represent your personal brand with. Dress to your industry standards and for your needs. Always bring a few outfits.

What to bring: Everything your baby needs, favorite toys, and maybe one or two different shirts, just in case. Babies are messy and sometimes fussy. (See below.)

We capture our professional and personal lives, why shouldn’t we capture our sexy and intimate lives, too? Boudoir photography can be an exciting gift for someone special but it’s also a unique experience you’ll walk away from feeling sexy, powerful, and confident! We can go as moderate or edgy as you’d like; it’s completely up to you.
What to wear: Whatever makes you feel sexy! Common boudoir outfits are bra/panty sets, thigh-high stockings, and corsets. Completely nude is also an option. Bring a robe, too!
What to bring: Props (use your imagination)!
CJP Studios has: Heated private studio and private dressing room. Big comfy chairs, couch.
Same as above wear what makes you confident! Do bring your makeup to touch up your look! Shoots can be a couple hours long so be sure to come prepared. Need some help? I know many makeup and hair stylists and can make recommendations. Send me an email to get started!
