Ok y’all I am taking you behind the scenes of Tilley’s Threads today to answer one of my most asked questions: “How do you get your outfit photos?”

Contrary to popular belief, my husband is not constantly taking photos of me (although that would be extremely helpful). I actually partner with my photographer, Mary Jane Morris, once a month to shoot the many looks you see here on the blog.

We photograph 4 to 7 looks a shoot and it may sound glamorous and super fun but it actually hard work! Especially in the heat we have been experiencing this year…

SOOOO, I am going to let you in on a few of my secrets to staying pretty during these marathon shoots…

Tip #1: Plan Ahead

When I am shooting multiple looks, I make a list of exactly what each look should include. That way when I am changing (in my car I might add), I don’t forget to put on the specific earrings I picked to go with that outfit. Another changing tip via my girl Greta, bring a sheet or towel to tuck into your car window so you don’t flash anyone 😉

Tip #2: Keep that hair fluffed…

So chic right? My teasing brush never leaves my side. No matter if I am doing a shoot or going shopping with friends. It is a quick and easy way to make your hair look more voluminous and less dirty haha.

Tip #3: Easy to use makeup

Being #instaready is a lifestyle. You never know when you are going to find a turquoise wall to pose in front of or the perfect selfie lighting which is why I carry Physicians Formula bronzer. The compact has a built in brush and mirror for quick and easy application. Y’all probably think I am crazy but this stuff actually has what they call “InstaFilter Technology” that optimizes light reflection, blurs imperfections and visibly retextures skin! You know you want some…

They also have a contour stick that I love. I am not the best at makeup (I don’t even know how to apply eye shadow) but their #foolproof products are easy to use and I am so appreciative!

    I’m obsessed with that contour stick… SO easy!! And my hubs takes all of my photos but we have been thinking about incorporating a professional for a few shoots. It’s hard to justify the cost BUT I feel bad bossing him around so it might be worth it!

      Having a photographer has been so helpful! I found mine by reaching out to a local college’s photography teacher to get a student photographer. I explained what I was willing to pay per hour and got a few responses back. After a few test shoots with different people, I choose Mary. She has since graduated but I am so glad I found her!

    Marathon shoots are such a good idea! I’ve been entertaining the idea, but I’m not quite sure where to start in terms of contract terms and pricing. If you’d be willing to share a little more with me about your agreement, I would be really interested to know! My email is Professional photos are always so much better than the ones my boyfriend shoots, even with my DSLR and nice lenses, haha!
