Trim hair & touch up color as needed a week before your session.
Protect your skin from sun before your session! I can retouch blemishes, but peeling, burned skin & odd tan lines, not so much. Be sure to shave what needs to be shaved.
FAMILIES: coordinate within a style, level of dress and complementary colors, but avoid being matchy-matchy.
WHAT TO AVOID
Clothing with signs of wear, loose threads, snags or stains.
Small, busy patterns and fluorescent colors.
Clothing should fit properly; steer clear of too-tight or overly baggy items .
Oversized tops paired with oversized bottoms or tight tops with tight bottoms.
Keep it classy; no sheer/revealing or overly tight clothing, too-short dresses/rompers.
Clothing with prominent logos / words distract from your face.
Colored / patterned undergarments can show through in-camera.
PLEASE, no self tanner (it always looks uneven and orange in-camera).
Chipped nail polish, split ends or sloppy makeup.
Men, I can't edit scruff; unless you want the unshaven look, shave before your session.
WHAT TO BRING
Props that are meaningful to you.
Seniors: sports equipment, jerseys/uniforms, musical instruments, letter jackets or club attire, dance gear, art and books, etc. Be creative! Your session should represent who you are right now. A car, motorcycle, bicycle, etc are also allowed.
Kids can include special toys, blankets, etc.
Your family pet (or pets!) can also be included in your session. Just be sure a handler is on site to attend to your pet and/or run him home when we are through.
