Is Glam Photoshoot Important?

Absolutely! A glam photoshoot is about boosting your confidence and empowering you. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with yourself, to feel empowered, feminine, and beautiful. Through this experience, you’re reminded to love yourself and embrace who you are today. When you find happiness within yourself, it changes your world.

Consider how you want to be portrayed and remembered. What legacy do you want to leave behind? This photoshoot allows you to shape your life and create lasting memories. It’s all about you and having an experience for a lifetime.


What Do I Wear for a Glam Photoshoot?

For a glam photoshoot in Calgary, opt for elegant outfits that reflect your personal style. Think cocktail dresses, gowns, chic blouses paired with tailored pants or skirts, or sophisticated jumpsuits. Choose outfits with flattering cuts and fabrics that accentuate your figure and make you feel glamorous. You also get full access to our wardrobe, with couture gown options. 

Don’t forget to accessorize with statement jewelry, high heels, and any other accessories that add a touch of luxury to your look. Ultimately, wear what makes you feel beautiful and confident.


What If I’m Not Photogenic?

Amanda and Irina are skilled at making you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. They’ll work with you to find the most flattering angles and expressions that highlight your best features. Remember, glam photos are about presenting you in the best possible light, so relax and trust the process.

Usually when people do not feel photogenic is because they aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, or they are being photographed by non-photographers, or they are not lit (or posed) properly. We work hard to create a stress-free environment for you to feel and look your best in every photo.

What Backdrops are Best for Glam Photos?

Simple, clean backgrounds are best for glam photos if you’re looking for timeless photos. Neutral colours like grey, white, or black, provide exactly that! You may also opt for a colourful pattern like red, mint and blue, which look great when coordinating with your clothing.


How Should I Prepare for A Glam Photo Session?

Preparing for a luxury glam photo session involves a few key steps to ensure you look and feel your best on the day of the shoot. Since hair and makeup are included in all my glam sessions, you can focus on these preparations:

Skincare Routine: Leading up to the shoot, maintain a consistent skincare routine to ensure your skin is radiant and healthy. Hydrate well and get plenty of rest.

Wardrobe Selection: We will guide you in this step, choosing outfits in advance, considering the style of the shoot. Might be something you already have in your closet or some of our couture gowns available at our commercial photo studio in Calgary.

Accessories: Select accessories such as statement jewelry, shoes, and handbags to complement your outfits and enhance your glam look.

Communication: Communicate any specific preferences or ideas you have for the shoot with us beforehand. This helps ensure that we’re on the same page and can tailor the session to your vision.

Enjoy: On the day of the shoot, relax and enjoy the experience. Trust in our expertise to create a stunning look that shows your natural beauty in every photo!


How Do I Pose for Glam Photoshoot?

Posing for a glam photoshoot in Calgary is all about exuding confidence and elegance. Here are some tips to help you pose like a pro:

  1. Posture: Stand tall with your shoulders back and your back straight. Good posture not only looks more confident but also elongates your body for a flattering silhouette.
  2. Find Your Best Side: Most people have a preferred side or angle that they feel more comfortable with. Experiment with different angles to find your best side and showcase your features.
  3. Relax Your Hands: Avoid stiff or clenched hands by keeping them relaxed and natural. You can gently place your hands on your hips, lightly touch your hair, or let them hang naturally by your sides.

  4. Expressions: Practice a range of expressions and find what feels most authentic to you. Remember to relax your facial muscles and avoid tense expressions.
  5. Use Props: Incorporating props can add charm to your photo shoot. Choose props that complement the glam theme and enhance your overall look.
  6. Follow the Photographer’s Guidance: Listen to our directions and guidance throughout the shoot. We can provide valuable feedback and suggestions to help you achieve the desired look.
