Suggestions for making the session successful:

We want to work with you to create beautiful and relaxed photographs of you and/or your group.  If you have any questions about the session please call either of our offices and we would be happy to discuss your thoughts and plan ahead with you.  Listed here are a few basic suggestions regarding clothing and session planning. We look forward to working with you.

General Thoughts:

-Relax, this will be a fun experience.
-
View some sample sessions from the links at the left for ideas.
-Call if you have any questions.

-Dark colors are slimming, light colors are not.
-We suggest clothing with no pattern or design that can distract the eye from the subject and draw
 attention.
-Donít get a hair cut for your appointment. It is best to have done so a week or two prior to.
-Dress from head to toe. If you do not we will be limited in what we can do creatively.
-It is best to remove a watch from the wrist.

Suggestions for Women:

-Shirts should be a solid color and at least ĺ length sleeves. Necklines should be at a respectable length.
-Normal makeup, our lights do not need extra makeup.
-Have nicely manicured fingernails (and toe nails for more casual portraits)

Suggestions for Men:

-A fresh shave is a must! schedule your appointment as early in the day as possible.
-Ties with a subtle pattern are okay.
-Shirts should be a solid color and long sleeves are best. Shirts that offer a buttoned collar should be
 fastened.
-Jackets should be solid color and fit properly.

Clothing for Groups:

-For groups of 3 or more, select 1-3 colors (keeping them all solid). One of the colors should be a neutral
 such as khaki, white, black, jeans (something everyone can incorporate in their ensemble). Veer away
 from everyone wearing the same thing. People should show their individuality while still blending with the
 group.
-Try to stay away from too much white.

Clothing for Children:

Girls

-Dresses for little girls should not be straight and tight at the hem line. This will not work well
 for seated portraits.
-It is best to have flowing and billowing dresses that will cover the legs.
-Bows should be subtle in a solid color.
-Try to avoid short collars on dresses and shirts. They often come out of place, not laying
 properly in various poses other than standing.

Boys:

-Pants should fit a little on the longer side if possible. Once the child is sitting the pants look too
 short.
-Undershirts should fit properly underneath sweaters.
