Visit the Creative Portraits blog for tips and tricks for styling your portrait session.

Thursday, March 8th Shopping starts at 6:30pm Fashion Show begins at 7:30pm Admission is $10, proceeds benefit CASA of Wichita Falls Visit for more information

2 Ladies, apply make-up slightly darker than what you normally wear for the best photographic results.

3 Gentlemen, don’t get a hair cut the day before or day of your portrait session to avoid that “straight from the barber” look.

Fashion Show Veteran Having never modeled before, I was thrown into a whole new world the first year I participated in the Creative Portraits Fashion Show for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). The moment I walked into the CP studio the staff made me feel at home. Getting to have your make-up professionally done and then being treated like a superstar during your shoot, is one of the coolest feelings. It’s great to know that even while you’re having fun this event is benefiting a good organization, CASA. The past three years I have seen the Fashion Show grow bigger and bigger, and I’m so excited to see how it will be even better this year! Visit
