Tips ahead of your photo session:

 

CLOTHING:

Firstly, wear something comfortable! If you don't like it, it'll show in the pictures. 

Women: Bring 2-4 crisply ironed solid color tops on hangers that fit you well and an optional jacket. There is a private bathroom down the hall from the Studio. Jewelry should be minimal if at all. It can be distracting _ and over time, it will also date the images. Be mindful of clothes that have been on hangars too long as it can create a crease on the shoulder and arm areas. 

Men: Bring 2-4 solid color pressed shirts that are flattering colors on you and fit well around your neck. A variety of solid T-shirts plus button shirts are good to bring. A suitcoat or sport jacket is a nice way to create an optional look. Be mindful of clothes that have been on hangars too long as it can create a crease on the shoulder and arm areas. 

 

HAIR & MAKEUP:

Women: You should look like you --  just a polished up version. Less is usually better; be especially mindful of not overdoing it with eye makeup. Bring your make-up and hair products in case we need to touch-up during the shoot. Alternatively, we can explore hiring a professional hair and makeup artist who can attend the session and do touchups throughout as needed. If that's desired, let me know ahead of time and I'll get the information to you to arrange services.
Men: I do not recommend make-up services for men. However, you should make sure to be nicely groomed (beard, nose, eyebrows and ears).

Both: Bring a hairbrush, comb or pick to keep your hair in check. If you have long hair, bring a scrunchy or rubberband to put it up for an alternative look.

 

EYEGLASSES:

If you wear glasses, bring as many pairs as you have. The quality of glass will make a significant difference in limiting glare. We will also try looks without wearing glasses.

 

MUSIC and OTHER PERKS:

If there is any particular music you enjoy and that relax you, let me know ahead of time and I can create a station for you in the studio. 

We also have a full supply of various beverages, from water and Coca-Cola to "adult" beverages.

 

Any other questions? Just holler!
