Backpack to carry items. Dont bring a sidebag or roller . It will be too much walking on uneven terrain

Comfortable sneakers for walking, light hiking

Warm socks

Warm sweatpants- easy to pull on/ off under dress

Warm coat- depending on weather

Make up/matte foundation reduce shine

Basically- use very slow sweeping movements. Hold behind for awhile for background,  then bring forward low for depth.

Photo ideas:

Overhead drone photo. Laying down, standing

Slow shutter photo with water/waterfall for milky effect- laying on rock in middle of water etc.

Smokebomb - limited use so need to be strategic

darkroom- dark walls with limited light.
