What to expect at your session

Once you have your session date, you will want to start planning everything you will need for it. Be sure to have all your clothes ready and ironed the day prior. If you have small children try not to get stressed or feel rushed, children pick up on our emotions very quickly and can start to feel uneasy about the session if they sense you are.

Don’t try a new hairstyle just for your session; have it cut about a week before your appointment. Fresh, natural makeup as well as “evening” makeup photograph well.

Problems with glasses can lead to extra retouching charges. We can remove normal glare on glasses, but tinted lenses cannot be lightened even with artwork. If your glasses are tinted or exceptionally thick, they can distort the way the camera photographs the eye. In this case, you should ask your optometrist for a pair of plain glass frames to wear for your portrait session.

In a family group, proper clothing coordination is critical. When decorating a home, a major concern is to coordinate the colors and tones of the walls, carpets, drapes, and furniture. Similar coordination is necessary when selecting clothing for a group portrait. Choose clothing in the same tonal ranges so that no single member of the family stands out because the clothing is too light or bright as compared to the rest of the group. Bold stripes, plaids, checks, and prints are visually confusing and do not photograph well.
