After I sorted my tops, we dove in the world of pants/trousers. I learned it all about the base… eh curve ;-). The curve from your hip to the waist up. That curve needs to be perfect or close to perfect. Every person has another curve. I learned my pants need to be quite straight up. Oli explained that if you find out which brands have ‘your’ curve it will get easier. So again. I tried on a lot of pants. And it took a while but I found what I was looking for. And again, Oli is such a great help as I would app her my images, she could help me on the spot. I arrived to the point where I thought “ok this is good (enough)” but Oli pushed me trough to do better.

Another thing to remember is what kind of pants do you want. What are your goals? These were the pants (see image) I was looking for. It is easier to go into a shop with your goal in mind. You are not distracted with all kinds of other (sometimes lovely stuff).

*** update I found TWO pair of trousers on the same day in the same shop. I was so happy that I took both. Such an achievement. One pair is basic and one pair is not so basic. And then Oli found another shop online which was a huge succes on many levels… among other things I found a perfect pair of jeans… stay tuned…

I met Nienke in Dubai just after we arrived in Dubai. She is such a kind women. She is a wife and a mum. Usually we would chat at pick-up time at school. She lived already a few years in Dubai so she was be a source of information. She is a do-er if she says something she will do it. I also love how engaged she is in her children school life. Prior to the photo session, I went to her home to chat about which clothes and which accessories we will use. I advise my clients to plan at least 5 outfits. We talk about different styles and the use of different style images.
