Planning your session


Soft medium tones (dark red, forest or olive green, indigo blue, plum) and neutrals (white/ivory, black, 

gray, khaki, beige or brown) work great  for outdoor portraits. Darker colors tend to be more slimming,

and lighter colors tend to highlight. Very bright colors or patterns can work for the "High-Key" (all white)

background or a "personality shot".

Avoid sleeveless or short sleeve shirts if you are concerned with how the arms photograph. 

(These can make you arms look heavier!).

Bring appropriate shoes and socks (or hose) for each outfit. Casual outfits in denim or khaki even 

look great barefoot! Also remember other accessories, such as ties, jewelry, hair items or sunglasses.

Iron or press clothing and put on hangers if appropriate.

Choose clothing tastefully. Belly rings, crop tops, too low or high-cut shirts/pants, short shorts & suggestive

clothing will not be photographed.   


 If you wear glasses all the time, you should plan to wear them in your session, so you look like your usual self. However, they can reflect a glare from light inside the studio or outdoors. Certain prescriptions can also make the size or shape of your eyes appear distorted. 

Here's what we suggest:  Borrow a pair of lenses from your optometrist,  take the lenses out for the day.

If wearing frames without lenses is not an options for you, we can try to adjust lighting to minimize glare. Finally, we can do hand retouching if glare does appear on your final prints (there is an extra charge for this).
