Tips to Enhance your photos

Portrait Sessions

  • Opt for form fitting tops and dresses vs baggy and lose.
  • Heels are more flattering for your figure.
  • Timeless and classic colors and patterns instead of trendy.
  • Find colors that are flattering for your skin tones vs. colors that are in style.
  • Use a professional makeup artist using airbrush foundation and hair stylist. 
  • Bring blotting papers to take away shine and a brush and hairspray in case there is wind.
  • Ladies always keep your lips shiny, it will bring out the highlights in your eyes, trust me.
  • Change once you arrive to the shoot, don't drive in your outfit.
  • Make sure your clothes are ironed, lint free and on hangers.
  • Hang any coordinating items with your outfits, such as belts, jewelry, etc, for quick changes.
  • Men be sure to shine your shoes and remove any scuffs.
  • Use Crest White strips 2 weeks before your session, they do make a difference.
  • Bring at least two outfits to choose from and include a variety of styles from somewhat casual, to cocktail dressy for diversity.
    • Example outfit 1 // dressy jeans, heels, silk blouse
    • Example outfit 2 // summer dress with boots or heels, jeans and polo or button down
    • Example outfit 3 // cocktail dress and heels, slacks and button down
  • Pick complimentary colors; one main prominent color and then varying accent colors ( navy with white is a good paring, green and purple is not).
  • Be sure whatever you wear represents you.  If you feel uncomfortable, it will show.
