How to use Canva to create a Mood Board
From where should you start?
We look at everything from how you want your hair and make-up to what outfits and accessories you bring to the types of poses, lighting, backdrops, sets and colour palettes you like.
Creating a mood board may seem a little overwhelming, but like your photo shoot, we want it to be a fun experience. Getting started is easy as 1,2,3!
Firstly you should choose between 2 to 3 looks or outfits from your wardrobe. We recommend one casual look and two differing looks, expressing your unique style with more colour or something a little more moody. What accessories will you wear – glasses, hats, jackets, bags or jewellery? You should consider all of those things when you are creating your Mood Board.

Get yourself in the right mindset.
In conclusion, you have to think about how do you want your hair and make-up you want for each look.
For hair, you can have down, up, waves, curls, slick, spiked, you name it, we do it!
For make up, do you want a natural look, smokey eye, dramatic Chanel red lip or something more glowy!
Not sure that is ok, too. You will be able to chat through options with your Stylist during your styling consultation before your photo shoot.
