- Solid colors work best. If you have a patterned shirt, keep it
low-key as they tend to distract from your face.
- Jackets-jean jackets, khaki jackets, etc. photograph great
- Black & Dark Colors tend to be more slimming
- White is great for a high-key effect; but, it does tend to widen
- Dark t-shirts under dark shirts
Do Not Wear:
- Plunging Necklines - this tends to be a distraction in
- Sleeveless Shirts - arms tend to look larger than they really
- Bold Patterns or Stripes - tend to widen and be a distraction.
- Girls: Watch the length of your skirts. We can not pose you
sitting outside on the set if your skirt is too short
- Guys: We strongly recommend pants not shorts; they photograph better.
- If you want to wear shorts please avoid bagginess and frayed edges.
- Wrinkled clothing. Prepare your outfits the night before to allow
enough time to iron if needed.
- Avoid baggy clothes as they will make you look larger than than real life.
- white t-shirts under dark shirts - it will stand out.
Wear clothing you are
comfortable and feel great in!
For extended portrait sessions, choose casual outfits, sportswear,
letter jackets, or formal attire. Choose clothing that suits your
Accessories: belts, ties, jackets, hats, necklaces, earring, sports
equipment, props, etc. If you have special jewelry that you want to show in the portaits, make sure you let the photographer know that they have special meaning.
GLASSES: if you
wear glasses, definetely wear them - this is you. If you can, take the lenses out. Lenses not only create glare,
but can distort the shape of your eyes and face.
- Check for chipped nail polish
- Tan Lines
- Appropriate undergarments
- Well groomed eyebrows
- Accent your lips and eyes a little more than you normally would.
- Bring hairspray, loose powder, lipstick, etc, for quick
touch-ups during the shoot.
- Outfit changes.
- Arrange your hair in your favorite style; use spray to keep it
- Also use spray to get rid of unwanted fly-aways.
- Have your hair cut or colored and your eyebrows waxed ONE WEEK
PRIOR to your session.
- Try a new look
- White eyeliner is distracting in the camera. Also too much
eyeliner will make your eyes smaller and dark.
- No frosted or high-shine lip gloss
