How to shine on camera – Model portrait session with Jaycee Gossett Pt. 2

Earlier this week we featured boudoir photos of Jaycee Gossett from her modeling portfolio session.  During that same shoot, we set up the studio lights and let Jaycee’s million dollar smile shine!

For Jaycee, her past modeling, dance, and teaching experience help her feel confident on camera.  But even she asked for a little Beyonce to help loosen her up.

If you’re feeling nervous, music helps to relax and even bring you out of your shell.   We love when clients tell us their favorite artist — our musical inspirations can instantly change our energy.   And even if you need a little extra boost, just make like Beyonce and adopt an alter ego.  We all have a little Sasha Fierce in us.
