PREPARING FOR YOUR STUDIO SESSION

What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are as a family, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where final images will be displayed. Your style should be as unique as your family, so we’ve put together some clothing advice for a creative, comfortable session.


THE GOAL FOR ANY PORTRAIT IS THE CREATION OF STUNNING ART TO BE DISPLAYED IN YOUR HOME AS A KEEPSAKE TO LAST A LIFE TIME.


what to wear... When planning which color to wear, take a moment to envision where your portrait will be displayed inside your home. Try your best to coordinate colors based on your home decor. If you are unsure, please email the studio a photo of your room and we will gladly discuss all possibilities that would work best. Be sure to plan your outfits completely a few days before your session. Here are some general rules for making your portrait become a true masterpiece in your home: ‚‚

Ladies: have hair styled before the session, keep makeup, manicures and pedicures natural Sleeveless tops works best for teens and kids

‚‚

Keep the day’s activities light, as we want the children looking and feeling their best.

‚‚

Knee length or longer for dresses/ skirts as you may be seated during your portrait

For the youngest children, an afternoon nap is ideal.

‚‚

Please try to stay away from sugary snacks and drinks before the portrait.

‚‚

Solid colors photograph best

‚‚

‚‚

Men: a clean shaven look & to have hair cut a week, or so, before the session

Don’t worry about your child smiling for the portrait. Making them smile naturally is our job.

‚‚

Dark colors work best in our studio: Navy Blue, Black, Browns, Dark Greens, Burgundy, and Greys are a good place to start.

‚‚

Clothes that flatter your body type, make you feel comfortable and coordinate well with the rest of the group
