What you need to know

Hair/Glasses/Props

Hair

If you're going to get a haircut or highlights, try to do so at least 1 week before your session. We recommend not trying a radically different style, because if you don't like it, you will have to wait weeks before it grows out.

 

Clothes

  • Solid colors photograph the best. Sometimes patterns can be distracting in studio portraits, and too busy for outdoor backgrounds. We won't tell you what color is best for you - wear your favorite! If you've gotten compliments when you wear a certain color, that just might be the best one to choose!
  • For family or group portraits, we don't want you to match, per se, but your colors should look good together! Pick similar tones and don't pick one that stands out from the others. Here's a trick: choose where you want to display your portrait and lay out the outfits on a sofa or table to see how they work together and look in that space.
  • A little planning ahead will make your portrait look better and one that you'll always enjoy!

 

Props

  • Props are a really fun way to personalize your portraits!
  • For children's portraits, a favorite toy, blanket, or special heirloom can really add special meaning.
  • For senior portraits, many of our sessions include bringing props. If your session does, feel free to bring musical instruments, sports equipment, stuffed animals, posters, class ring, etc. Be creative! If you have a lot of trophies, ribbons, or a hobby collection you want to bring, ask about adding on a Special Interests session to give our photographers extra time to display your items best.
