One of the best things to do is send a example of what you are after in a MP3 format on the session. If you are sending a session to a MIX engineer I would not want anything on the tracks that you feel could be better. If there is a reverb or effect that you like and WANT on there then by all means write it in. Chances are though that any professional mix engineer will have better, cleaner effects than what you send. I prefer to not have anything (compression, etc) on a track unless it is that specific sound that they want. I can then build upon it later.

Best thing is to clean and mix prep the tracks to your best ability, consolidate them all into equal length tracks, LABEL THEM PROPERLY and save just the used audio out as a new session. Clean the session up and send that out.

Hope this helps?
