Planning & Tips

Some of our best advice to get you started

 

What To Wear

  • Solids and subtle patterns tend to photograph better than heavily patterned or striped clothing.
  • Large, funky patterns or graphics can be fun for something different but not for every shot. And no text or large logos please!
  • Bring a variety of colors to choose from.
  • Bring some dressy and some casual outfits.
  • Plan the whole outfit, don’t forget the shoes!

HAIR & MAKEUP

Hair and makeup are key to making your photos great! Proper styling can really make your images “pop” and take them that extra step from great to WOW!!!

We know a lot of girls these days do a fantastic job with their own hair and makeup. However, we do highly recommend hiring a professional to help you get that polished look.

Other Tips

  • Most glasses glare. Try removing the lenses from the frames or check with your optometrist to see if they can loan you an empty set of similar frames for your session.
  • We retouch blemishes so don’t worry about breakouts!
  • Bring props! Sporting equipment, dance outfits and musical instruments are all popular options that tell others something about you.
  • Parents are, of course, welcome at the session but they can become a distraction and we highly prefer to work one-on-one with each senior.
