Clothing tips

Girls clothing suggestions for senior pictures?

Girls should have lip gloss, mascara, hair brush and 6-8 tops. Please vary your styles with off the shoulder, polo, tank tops, button down or three quarter length sleeves. Jeans, light and dark, along with capris look great. Tops with spaghetti straps should be avoided if tan lines are an issue.

Guys clothing suggestions for senior pictures?

Guys should bring 6-8 tops such as T- shirts, polo, crew neck, button down or sweaters. Jeans, light and dark, along with tan or colored shorts look great. Letter jackets look best with a white T-shirt. Guys should shave prior to their appointment when appropriate.

Colors that photograph best?

Primary colors such as black, charcoal, royal blue, navy, burgundy, red, forest green, mustard, tan, pink, purple and white photograph best. Plaid and strip shirts look great.

Colors that should be avoided?

Very light pastel and neon colors. T-shirts with oversized logos covering the front of the shirt should be avoided.

What about footwear?

Flip flops, sandals or deck shoes look great with waterfront locations.

What if I wear glasses?

Glasses that are transitional or non glare free should have the lenses removed from your frames prior to the photo shoot. Removal of glass glare or tinting that blocks the subject’s eyes will incur additional retouching. Please consult your photographer if you have any concerns.

What if I wear braces?

Your photographer will take a variety of pictures of you smiling and not smiling in order to give you a great selection to choose from.  The removal of braces is $45 per pose if requested but not always necessary.

What about acne?

No acne will show since the photographer will retouch your portraits.

Trying a new hairstyle the day of my pictures?

Try a new hairstyle a few days prior to your appointment to see if you really like it.

Should I tan?

Tanning is fine but not necessary, and as a reminder, tan lines will show unless you tan evenly.

Losing a few extra pounds before my pictures?

Your photographer is an expert at posing, lighting and retouching that will compliment your figure.  Clothing selection plays a key role in how you photograph. Please consult your photographer if you have any concerns.
