Stick to solid colors. We want your face, your expression, YOU to stand out, not your floral or crazy pattern top.
Make sure the the fit is right. Nothing baggy or too tight, especially in the shoulders and neck.
Wear colors that compliment your skin tone.
Bring an assortment of choices and I will help you to select the ones best for your portrait.
For your business/corporate headshot be sure your choice of clothing is workplace appropriate.
Keep jewelry to a minimum. No clunky necklaces or earrings. Keep it simple. Too busy is distracting and can date your image over time.
You may want to bring a jacket to change up the look.
Men...try on your choices of shirts and jackets before your session. Look out for gaps between your neck and shirt collar. It may be time for a new purchase! Lastly the seams of your shirt and your jacket should fit squarely on your shoulders.
The goal is for you to look like you, just a polished-up version.
Come camera ready, both hair and makeup. We recommend you schedule a hair appointment with your regular stylist the day of your session. Some clients like to have a make-up application appointment before their session as well. We also have a makeup artist we can schedule for you at the studio before your session begins.
