1. Ladies - Don't over use styling products as the photographers will move your hair throughout your sessions to give you lots of different looks. 2. Gentlemen - get your haircut at least one week before your session. 3. Be prepared to touch up hair & makeup during your photo shoot. 4. Stop tanning at least 3 weeks before your sitting to avoid unwanted blotchy, dry looking skin in your portraits. 5. Bring trendy and traditional clothes – The hottest new fashions are awesome on wallets but your grandparents might like a more classic look. 6. Solid colors are best – Clothing with strong patterns can distract from the most important thing in the photo - YOU! 7. Bring an assortment of clothing types (long sleeves, dresses, skirts, suit & tie, jeans, T-shirts, etc.) Give our artists a variety to work with especially if you add on Artistic Black & White. 8. Cars, artwork, flowers, musical instruments, sports and pets are examples of accessories that will make your pictures uniquely you. 9. Hats, sunglasses, scarves, jackets, etc. are a great way to add your personality to your photos. 10. Practice your smile in a mirror – Sounds silly but it really helps. 11. Do you wear glasses? Removing the lenses or borrowing a pair of frames without lenses will eliminate glass glare and avoid digital artwork fees. 12. Your senior portrait session is not the time to experiment with a new hairstyle. Be yourself! 13. Have a consultation - This is a great way to get ideas for your senior photos and best of all - it’s free! 14. Don’t worry about blemishes – All the images you order are retouched by our world-class art department. 15. Relax and have fun! Our photographers have the experience and expertise to make your photos spectacular! There is no need to worry or be nervous. The more relaxed you are the more natural your photos will look.
