As you know I’m very passionate about helping people look and feel their best. That’s what we do at Body3 Fitness Center, and I have to say we do an awesome job at it too!
As you may not know I am also a photographer. I bought my first 35mm camera when I was 11 years old. I had to save up for months delivering newspapers before going into the camera store and purchasing my Pentax MEsuper (or as my brothers used to make fun of me saying ME- thuper, I guess I had a little speech problem). At any rate, I’ve gotten back to my artistic side and have launched Jackobs Photography.
Since you are on my email list I thought I’d put together a Holiday Photo Shoot special. It’s on my photo website [click here]. I also love making photos of pets and their owners and newborns. It brings out my creative side.
Whether you want to take me up on the offer or not, here are a few tips for looking your best during a photo shoot (it also goes for everyday life as well!):
- Be well rested. Make sure you have plenty of rest . . . it really comes across on film if you haven’t had enough sleep. While I’m pretty good at Photoshop, some things just can’t be fixed!
- Avoid inflammatory food. There is nothing worse then looking puffy! And the camera does really add 10 pounds. There are things I can do to minimize that effect, but you need to do your part too. Here are a few things to avoid eating the day before your photo shoot: salty foods, white breads, and dairy. All of those foods cause inflammation and water retention, so if you want to look your best, avoid them.
- Pick out several clothing choices and bring options with you. Generally you want to choose solid colors and avoid pinstripes.
- Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated helps the skin glow and you want it to glow in your photos.
Go ahead and take advantage of my Holiday Photoshot Special by replying to this email before Thanksgiving. Time slots are limited so hurry before I fill up. I know you will be pleased with how you look . . . and if you’re not, you don’t pay a dime!
