What to wear to your photo shoot

Your Photo Shoot Style Guide

world class portraiture in your home.

My style of photography is very timeless, with a touch of regal drama. Let's dress for your session!

I recommend picking a color palette of 3 colors, an example is black, grey and burgundy and have everyone dress with in the color palette. 

Hair & Make-up: You will want to come to the studio with your hair and make up done. I also offer having my hair/make-up artist do your make up for $175. Please let me know at time of scheduling if you would like me to book her for you. Please have your nails done for your session.

For women: I  have an assortment of gowns and jewelry at the studio for you to use during your session that photograph beautifully. You will want to stay away for anything with a pattern, patterns distract from the portraits. We want to keep the focus on you and your family. Please have your nails done for your session.

For Maternity: I have all the jewelry, maternity gowns and wraps for you to use during your session at the studio. Please have your nails done for your session.

For men: I recommend a suite or black or khaki pants with a black or white button down dress shirt. 

For kids: Bring two changes of clothes. One a suite, dress or nice stylish outfit, and one to do a themed masterpiece portrait. (look at the gallery below for examples)
