What to Wear

Laura-107{ STYLE & CLOTHES }

Make sure you bring more than enough clothing choices if you aren’t sure of your final decisions and we will help you make your final choices for the number of outfits you booked.

Accessories take your session from blah to FABULOUS!  I love to photograph everything from prom dresses, cheerleading outfits, sports gear and uniforms, raggedy jeans, novelty t-shirts, party dresses, prom dresses, boyfriends jersey, bandanas, favorite college gear, baseball caps, hats, heels and boots, layers, jackets, sweaters, gloves, skirts, dresses, pants, capris and shorts, jeans, jean skirts, jeans with holes, your senior jeans, winter hats and scarves, coats with hoods and fur. You get the idea … Variety!!

  • Variety is key in texture, shape, color, and style! Prints, solids or patterns are all great, just make sure you bring a mix. Bring long sleeved shirts too. Sleeveless and cap sleeved shirts make arms looks bigger so bring long sleeves for longer looking arms. A few quick shots in a favorite winter coat, especially one with a cool furry hood is great!
  • Make sure everything is ironed and on hangers. Do not shove everything in a gym bag! We cannot fix wrinkles in the editing process.
  • Place each set of jewelry in a plastic baggie and hang it on the hanger with that outfit. This will save you time and we will get to shoot more if you aren’t having to untangle your necklaces or locate one missing earring.
  • Bring the proper undergarments for each outfit. Make sure you bring the proper bra for each top and don’t forget the proper underwear if you are bringing white pants.

{ NAILS}

  • Your nails will show so make sure your nails are clean and manicured.
  • Natural colored nails or French manicure is best. This way your nails go with everything.
  • No black, no red, no bright colors!

{HAIR }

Don’t try anything new with your hair right before your session.  This means color or cut, and this goes for both guys and girls.  One to two weeks before your session is fine.  Remember to bring a comb or brush and any hair products you may need.  Hair spray can be very helpful for those stray hairs that won’t stay down.

{ TANNING AND SUNBURNS}

  • Please avoid trying to get some last minute sun, either naturally or in a tanning bed.
  • Tans photograph well, sunburns do not!.  Too deep a tan will actually make your face look fuller, aged and your skin can have a dull  appearance.
  • If you are badly sunburned or heavily peeling, especially on your face, you may need to reschedule your session.
  • You also need to be very careful with self tanners and spray on tans.
  • Orange and streaky…we cannot retouch out the results of a poor application of self, spray tan, or burns.

{PERSONALITY}

  • First of all… relax, there is no need to be nervous.
  • Prepare and just relax and have fun!
