Tips to Look Your Best

For Guys

A fresh shave is a must! If you wear a beard or mustache, make sure it’s neatly trimmed.


For Girls

Keep your make-up natural and fresh. Bring lipstick and powder for touch-ups.
Clothing We suggest 3/4 to long sleeves shirts. Middle tones to deeper shades are ideal for darker backgrounds, formals and outdoors. Avoid prints or patterns, which can be distracting.  Please don’t forget your class ring or favorite jewelry, as this will enhance your portraits.



Do your hair before you arrive. We don’t suggest trying any new styles or colors right before your session.
Wear your hair in a style that you are comfortable with.



Keep in mind that your hands will be in your portraits. Hands and fingernails should be clean and neatly groomed. Don’t forget your class ring, it can be included in some of your poses.



Glasses can create a distracting glare. Most optometrists will gladly remove your lenses or lend you a pair of empty frames for your session.


Personal Props

Musical instruments, sports equipment, uniforms or other things of interest. Bring hats and other accessories or personal items that complete your outfit.  



Avoid excessive exposure to the sun several days prior to your session. Strap marks, marks from ball caps, peeling skin and sunburns cannot be removed with basic retouching.
