As time passes it's so important to create art that helps us celebrate the simple everyday joy and love of living! These images often bring us increasing joy for years to come. Don't be intimidated! Come out and say cheese for a great cause! Below we have 5 tips on getting a great shot. Please add yours in the comments...

1. The show must go on!

The most important thing is to show up and say cheese, trust the moment. Trust the skill of the photographer.

2. It takes a village

Achieving the "natural" look is literally an entire make-up industry worth millions. The point is, don't be above using professional hair and make-up whenever possible. On camera "natural" is different than real life natural, and it's a great idea to use mascara and eyebrow pencil to help your eyes show up under studio lights.

3. Relax and shine to music

If you know you have a favorite song that brings out some feel good vibes for you cue it up on your phone and have it ready to go. Music can help everyone relax and feel comfortable, especially if you know you're a bit camera shy.

4. Take class.

if you are trying to take a few shots of your Asanas (postures.) Make time to take class that morning your you are nice and loose for the shoot and have that yoga glow!

5. Coordination for the win!

Whether you are shooting with a group or alone give a little though to your attire and how it will show up on camera. There are many simple ways to coordinate your clothes as a "family". Some examples are;

all black,

all white,

black bottoms and solid color tops,

Yoga clothes,

dress up, etc.

Again we invite you contribute your ideas by leaving it in the comments. Peace love and light,
