CREATING YOUR

VISION BOARD

Pinterest is a great way to plan your shoot and share your inspiration with me!

The best way to design a mood board with great visual inspiration is to pick photos based on if they communicate a similar feeling or emotion, and if they have specific poses, positioning, or an outfit that you love.

When pinning, please use the caption to explain what you like about the image.  This both helps me to understand what catches your eye, and you remember why you pinned it when you refer back.

Ideas of what to look for and comment on:

  • Poses
  • Colours
  • Clothing / Outfits and Accessories
  • Props

Bonus Tip: Look at inspiration outside your industry to set yourself apart.  The key is to not plan to replicate the image exactly but to use the board as inspiration to create your own custom images.
