Take your photos between 30-36 weeks. I took mine at 39 weeks and that was risky! 2. For outdoor shoots, take your photos during the “golden hour”. That means one hour before the sun sets or rises. Having an overcast sky is best, but we didn’t get that lucky so we positioned the sun to our sides to as not to cast a huge shadow over our bodies or faces. 3. Learn how to use a self timer and tripod BEFORE you go to your shoot. This will save you a lot of annoyance when there’s people around and your dealing with the elements (wind, sun, etc.) 4. Plan your poses out ahead of time and pin them to a Pinterest board, referring to the board throughout your shoot to make sure you have all the poses that you want captured. 5. Practice your poses in front of a mirror by yourself and with your spouse. This will put you both at ease for the day of the shoot! 6. Be in a good mood! This sounds simple, but trust me, whenever Doug and I bicker it usually happens when we are taking pictures together. There’s a lot of stress that goes into getting the perfect shot because you have to work with the camera settings, sunlight changes, outfit mishaps, etc. So eat a good meal beforehand and come energized!
