FOR THE GIRLS

Hair

Hair styling should be appropriate to the clothing selection. Avoid

new hairstyles or having your hair cut or permed the week before your

appointment to allow your hair to adjust to the change. If you would like to

change your hairstyle during your session, this can add a little more variety to

your photographs. It should, however, be a simple change that can be done quickly.

Makeup

makeup for photographs should be as you normally

wear it. Too much makeup tends to give you that "painted" look; too little

might not show off your features. A loose translucent powder is helpful to

eliminate shine especially for oily skin. Since most portraits concentrate on the

eyes, great care should be taken to make them perfect. Avoid using excessively

bright colors, and mascara should be neat and without "clumps."

Clothing

We suggest you bring a variety of clothing to your session. We

recommend a traditional dress outfit for your formal and then a selection of

casual outfits that best show your personality. Darker solids usually work best

for your formal portrait. Off-the-shoulder dresses are nice, but avoid tan lines.

White or pastels usually are best for light backgrounds. Basic primary colors as

well as black and white are great for casuals. Denim always photographs

nicely. Remember that the clothing should be flattering but not overpowering.

things to avoid: Strips, bold patterns and prints that distract, bright floral

(pastels are okay), clothing with wording on it, and neon colors. Often the

best policy is to bring extras, and we will help you decide when you get here.
