  Photo Tips

Do plan ahead to bring your favorite music (you will be more relaxed in your photos), bring props which relate to your personality or interests.  If an avid photographer, bring your camera.  If you love basketball, bring a ball along..

Bring several outfits.  The photographer will be happy to help you narrow down your selections.  If in doubt, bring more than you will use.

Avoid busy patterns on clothing and bold prints when possible.

Always bring both casual as well as formal outfits. 

Make sure clothing is ironed if necessary.

More fitted clothing is always less dated and usually more flattering.  It is good to do a variety which can certainly include the latest in fashion trends as well as more formal clothing.

Avoid sunburns from tanning beds as well as sun exposure since tan lines and sunburns canít be easily edited.

Wear a hairstyle you are comfortable with.  Avoid a new haircut within a couple days of your photo session.

If you wear glasses, Wear them for your session, but if possible, remove the lens to avoid glare.  Your optometrist might loan you a pair of frames.

Get a good night of sleep the night before or it will show in your photos.

.MEN-make sure you have a fresh shave.  Trim any mustaches or beards.

WOMEN-Fresh makeup is a must.  Bring touchup makeup to your photo session.  Always have a clear lip gloss handy to brighten up your photo and translucent powder to eliminate any shine...  Ignore any temptation to wear body glitter which reflects light, resulting in white spots on your photos.
