When including jewelry in the look, wear something appropriate that’s not too large so it’s not distracting.

Take a few test shots, then have the client view the images. Ask if they like how they look so far. If they don’t, ask them what specifically what they would like to change so you can make changes immediately.
Get to know where the sun is at various times of day in your location and where it would be best to shoot outdoors when the client gets there so no time will be wasted.
I want to see which side of your face is the most flattering. Keep your head straight and still and look at me. I will look at one side and then the other.

Now keep your face on the good side and turn your body different ways.Be creative with it because if you don't you won't learn anything.This might be out of your comfort zone but that’s ok. I like to do that with people even if it's not their natural personality or they’re uncomfortable with it
