Getting Camera Ready

Preparing for your shoot

  • Have your hair cut a couple of days before your shoot.
  • Groom any excess facial hair at the same time (Ear, Nose, Eyebrows, and Beard)
  • Consider using specialty products such as beard oil and eyebrow gel.
  • Tame your beard.  A classic beard should not be too long or short.
  • Moisturize your skin.  Skincare for men is super important.  I recommend a hydration moisturizer with an SPF 30 rating.
  • Use a light moisturizer that isn’t too greasy.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • If you have a clean-shaven face microdermabrasion can be done up to 2 days before your shoot.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your shoot.
  • If you are worried about crows feet, use a men’s eye cream the night before to hydrate those problem areas.

Candee’s Role

With Candee’s years of experience in skin care/hair and grooming she will be sure to guide you to making the right decisions with regard to moisturizing and developing a skin routine prior to your shoot.

On the day of your shoot, Candee will be sure that your skin is as even and free of blemishes as possible, prime your skin to prepare for the makeup application, and ensuring that your hair is groomed properly before you are in front of the camera.

When necessary, Candee will stay throughout the shoot to reapply any makeup that wears, powder and clean up any issues, and react live to the images as they are coming out to make sure every shot comes out professionally.


  • Candee Caldwell, Words can’t express how much we love you. Thank you again for traveling to Rockport Mass and making two women in love feel so beautiful on our wedding day. Not only did you do our makeup but you help dress us. Thank you for sharing in our day!
