Hola #LittleFinders! Today I am talking about on the go stories featuring Creminelli Fine Meats™ As you guys might know, having great photos is a huge part of a successful blog, but the process can be not “so glamorous”. We are talking about carrying tons of clothes, changing in your car, finding great locations and sneaking time to eat something in between a full day. In the past couple of years,’ I’ve learned a few tricks that help me have a much more successful shooting day and I am ready to share them with you. Ready, Set, Go!
- Prepare your outfits in advanced: I always plan everything from the clothing to the accessories, shoes, and makeup the night before. I take photos on my phone of what goes with every outfit, and I write down some ideas for the types of photos I want to take. I keep all the clothes in hangers and put all accessorizes in a big tote bag. I also pack a lunch bag with some of my favorite snacks like a bottle of water, crackers and Creminelli trays. (My favorite is Felino- manchego) .This already makes me prepared and organized. Plus it keeps my boyfriends, (AKA photographer) happy as well.
2. Plan your locations: You do not have to go out of the country to find great locations. Look around your town for some places that fit your style. When I am driving to work, I always pay attention to places that will work for taking photos for my blog. From murals, pretty parks, neighborhoods and even back alleys. (Make sure you are always accompanied by someone and in a safe area)
3. Be Prepared for a long day: Shooting two to three looks can take half a day or more. Make sure you are mentally prepared and stay positive. When you live in Florida, the sun can take the best of you and you have to make sure you eat and stay hydrated. Did you know in Europe is common to have a mid-afternoon snack of Italian meat & cheeses. I’ve adopted this tradition when I take my blog photos. It makes the day more relaxing and fuels me up. You might not always be around an area where you can purchase a snack, which leads me to my next point.
4. Pack some snacks: This is one of the most important things for a successful shoot. I always pack a little backpack with some ice packs and fill it up with snacks. Lately, Mauricio and I have been obsessed with Creminelli. We get it at Starbucks, in the refrigerated area, right before you order.
We paired them up with bread or crackers to keep us full. It’s easy on the go snack that fulfills a desire for protein, helping fuel your body. I get so inspired looking at Creminelli’s Instagram page and see what adventures people are up to. There a quite few different ones to try, and I have a feeling we will be tasting them all.
5. Be confident and enjoy the process: Taking photos can be stressful, however, it’s all about having a good time! Whatever you’re on the go adventure, don’t get caught up in the stress of it and rather have some fun!
