Tips and Suggestions for Great Pictures

  Clothing
  • Solid colors or simple patterns look best. Busy patterns on clothing are distracting.
  • Medium to dark shades create a timeless look.
  • Darker colors are slenderizing.
  • Small jewelry/accessories compliment your face better. Avoid large, distracting accessories.
  • Make sure your shoes match your outfit. They might show in some poses.
  • Long sleeves are better for adults to focus attention on the face. Short sleeves are ok for infants and children.
  • Your glasses are a part of you, so feel free to wear them. Our photographers are trained to minimize any glare.
  Grooming
  • Make sure nails are trimmed and clean.
  • Simple hairstyles and natural makeup are best.
  • Don't get your hair cut within 48 hours of your portrait sitting. Ideally, haircuts should happen 2 weeks prior.
  • Limit your exposure to the sun for a few days before portrait day.
  • Have any hair and makeup supplies available for quick touch-ups.
  Posing for the Camera
  • Plan your outfit in advance. View our general appearance tips above to find out what works and what doesn't.
  • Remember to keep good posture.
  • Check your hair, shirt collar, and accessories at your photography session. Our photographers will also check these details.
  • Relax and smile at the camera like it's your best friend.
  • Be yourself and have fun.
