In order to help us give you the best possible result for your portrait session, we offer a few suggestions:
Bring a hair brush or comb with you. This will help in taming any strays that develop. If you have a long, loose hairstyle, a light application of hairspray can help keep flyaways from occurring. A heavy application is not necessary, unless that is your personal style. Some clients have their hair and make up professionally styled, others have more of a do-it-yourself preference. We are open and welcome both approaches.
Just prior to your session, ensure your fingernails are clean, and any nail polish you have is not chipped. Please bring your nail polish and make up with you to the session to allow for touch ups before and during the session if necessary.
Making sure your clothing is as wrinkle free as possible is advised. Wrinkles can be enhanced by light and show up in your photo more than can be seen with the naked eye. A lint roller can be your friend, and reduce any loose hairs (particularly if you are a pet owner) showing in your portrait.
Be mindful of the clothing colors you choose to wear, in relation to the location of your session. For example, dressing primarily in various shades of green for a location with leaves and other green foliage, or in black for photographs with a dark background may not be the best choice.
If you have any questions on what to wear, please ask and we will offer suggestions more specific to your session.
