This one is quick and simple. Leave as much stuff in the car as you can. That means phones, purses, change of clothes, props, everything. The only thing you should bring with you are your keys and your lipgloss or lipstick (and only then if you’re the kinda gal that likes to retouch). If you bring your purse, bag, etc, Jenny or Melanie end up carrying it around. Which we are happy to do. But we like to stay light on our feet, bringing lots of energy and spontinaity to your shoot, and to be ready for anything. That is harder with a Prada on our shoulder in addition to our camera equipment. So don’t worry, we can always run back to the car because we’re never very far away from it! And don’t try to stuff your pockets either, because we’ll see it in the photos.

Above: Melanie shooting Kristen and Sean’s engagement session in Ventura (thanks to Kristen’s mom for the photos!). Imagine trying to play with your adorable puppy and keep track of your stuff! Not as fun. So here is our quick tip for the day! Enjoy!
