Before we formalize our relationship, let's start off with a consultation, at no cost to you. We can meet at your home or another location of your choice and ask you a few brief questions. If you already have ideas, we'd love to hear them! Together, we'll come up with a photo package that's right for you, at a price you can afford.
What to wear? What to wear? The answer is really simple, wear what makes you YOU! Are you an athlete? A musician? A dancer? A girly girl who loves her skirts and heels? Bring items that will showcase who you are. Bring a variety of clothes to choose from. Some timeless/classic outfits are always recommended. Trendy clothes are great, but everyone needs at least one shot in something they won't be embarrassed to look at 10 years from now. Below are some more tips for making your images the best they can be.
*Guys- You should bring a variety of shirts (polos, button-ups, sweater/sweatshirts) and pants. Most importantly don't forget to have shoes that are in good condition since they will show in some of the shots.
*Girls- Your choices are really limitless. Do you have a favorite dress and heels? Or maybe you feel more comfortable in jeans and a cool jacket. Bring whatever you feel makes a statement about who you are. Don't forget to bring accessories-your favorite bag, necklace, etc.
*As a general rule, you should try to avoid bringing anything striped.
*Hair- We suggest that if you are having your hair cut for your pictures that you do this at least 1-2 weeks before your scheduled photo session. Your hair should be natural and move with you in your pictures.
*Nails and Tanning- Yes guys this section also applies to you. Nails should be freshly manicured, no chipped polish please. This does not mean you have to run out and get a professional manicure, just make sure they are nicely filed and clean.
We know we all like to have a little tan, but avoid spray tanning before your session. It tends to make people look orange in their photos. By the way, sunburns don't really work out too well either.
*Makeup- Not all girls like makeup as much as some. However, it is important that you do have some makeup on for your session. When applying it, you should apply it as if you are going out for the evening, not like you are going to school. The camera tends to de emphasize makeup, so a little more than usual is recommended. Try to avoid frosted eye shadows and lipsticks/glosses. If you have any concerns/questions about your makeup, just let us know.
*Specialty items- Don't forget to bring special pieces like your prom/homecoming dress, your athletic uniform, or your hunting gear. All of these, along with any other props are going to make your pictures more uniquely you!
