PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION

WHAT TO BRING...

  • Several extra outfits (while you may not wear every outfit, it is good to have several on hand)
  • Casual and formal outfits
  • Matching shoes (for full-length poses)
  • Long sleeves and solid colors (to keep the focus on you)
  • Letter jackets, uniforms, musical instruments, pets or any other props that reflect who you are
  • Make-up, hair supplies, and accessories
  • Friends and parents (to assist you and even join you for a few poses)
  • Be prepared to pay your session fee ($35) the day of your session

TIPS TO LOOK YOUR BEST...

  • Check your outfits for wrinkles and place them in a garment bag
  • Do your nails (clear or neutral colors work best)
  • Guys, be sure to shave the night before
  • Limit exposure to the sun a few days before your session to avoid sunburns or tan lines
  • Avoid getting a new hairstyle or cut right before your session. Instead, select a comfortable style that you know looks good.
  • Get a good night's rest

JUST BEFORE YOUR SESSION...

  • Do your hair and make-up before you arrive
  • Apply concealer and powder to minimize any blemishes and then stop worrying (portrait retouching will eliminate blemishes on your final order)
