Senior portrait tips for guys


Guys: Clothing tips and Guidelines

If you have facial hair, like beards and moustaches, they should be neatly groomed or you should be freshly shaved. Make sure that your clothes are neatly prepared for your session, (guys … that “comfortable look” which basically means that if it’s on the top of the pile or been draped over a favorite chair will not work), mom wants a better portrait than that. And if mom doesn’t like the way it looks ... guess what? You’ll have to do it again!

 

Basics: Check and see which session you are scheduled for, then bring one or two extra outfits, just in case. Solid colors are traditionally best for portraits, but that doesn’t mean that EVERYTHING has to be a solid color. Some sessions lend themselves to clothing with a little more pattern and flair. If you are using your sports gear, bring an out that will work with that look, so the gear can be placed in the photo with you. *NOTE: If you have a favorite outfit BRING IT! If you like it, then you will look more comfortable and the portraits we create will be the real you.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Senior portrait tips for girls


Girls: Clothing tips and Guidelines

Your hair should be styled in the normal way that you would wear it. Your portrait session isn’t the best time to try out new hairstyles! A new cut should be at least 1 week old before your portrait session. Makeup should be applied normally. Don’t experiment for your portraits, stay with the styles that have worked for you in the past.

*NOTE: Glitter makeup: while it may look cool in real life, it does not photograph well in portraits, it creates distracting white specks that don’t look like makeup and are difficult (and $$ expensive $$) to remove. Please be aware, that if you chose to wear glitter makeup during your session, you will be responsible for any expense of removing it from your portraits if you decide you don’t like it later. Select the outfits that are flattering to your figure. Foundation garments should be a single color that will closely match your skin tone. Avoid any styles with glitter or sparkles. Bronze, pewter or a medium to dark beige are typically best for darker clothing,  and watch those styles that leave lines. (... nobody will think those lines look good in your portraits later.) Think seamless! Decorative lace can add unwanted texture and be distracting as well. Strapless  should be avoided if possible, but some outfits require it, as strapless can create an unnatural contour and will draw attention away from your face. If you are going to be wearing a tank top, thin strap, tube top or a top that is form fitting, pay attention to these suggestions, please. The final choice is up to you of course!. We only want you to look your very best!
