are a few things that you should consider before you come to your
several outfits that you and others who know you well
feel are flattering to you. Avoid clothing with wide stripes, overly
bright colors and "wild" patterns. Instead, choose clothing with
colors and textures that suit your personality and enhance your
natural features such as your eyes and hair.
speaking of hair...
"Bad hair days" can be controlled. Actually, most people's hair
looks better the second day after being washed. Your natural oils
and shimmer have had a chance to return, and natural waves and curls
have relaxed. Use a conditioner if your hair is dry, and if time
permits, make a visit to your stylist.
you color your hair, make your portrait appointment a week or more
later, to give the color a chance to "mellow" before we take your
photos. Bring a soft-bristled hair brush and hairspray with you
to your portrait session.
When it comes to make-up for portraits, the number one rule is:
A little goes a long way. This is a close-up art form, and heavy
make-up will spoil your natural look. Use a good quality foundation
to cover blemishes and to even out your skin tone.

your features without drawing undue attention to them.

along facial powder and a puff or blotting cloths to soften the
shine during your session.
eyeliner and mascara for formal or "evening" shots, especially in
the studio, but you may wish to skip them for casual and outdoor
Most important of all, bring along a good mood! Stress and bad attitudes
actually change the shape of your face and exaggerate crow's feet
and other wrinkles. Get a good night's sleep beforehand, and give
yourself plenty of time to get to your appointment.
