I'd like to tell you that I'm always cool, calm and collected before photographing a shoot- but the truth is, I'm sometimes nervous- even if I spend a few days to a week prepping. 
I've learned that I have to be in the right mental state of mind, and that I usually need a good ten minutes of shooting to warm up a little (just like a workout.) I learned that I feed off positive energy so if I'm shooting alone in my office, turning on my favorite music and dancing totally helps. Also, honestly? Sometimes I even make a cocktail. That's the real behind the scenes 😉
