TIPS FOR SENIOR PORTRAITS
MAKEUP: Wear whatever makeup you like. Avoid oily products which may make your skin shiny.
CLOTHING: Bring 3-4 clothing changes. There may not be a place to change, please keep this in mind when choosing outfits.
STUBBLE OR BEARD: Make sure it is neat. Clean shaven is great. Stubble can NOT be retouched.
HAIR: Wear your hair however you feel looks best for you.
BRING A HELPER: Mothers are great. Bring only one person as multiple people become counter-productive.
JEWELRY: Have your jewelry in small plastic bags ready-to-go. This will greatly help with your organization.
BLEMISHES: Do not attempt to cover up blemishes. It is much easier to Photoshop them on bare skin.
PROPS: Bring along something that may be of personal importance to you. Sports, musical instruments always good.
SUNBURNS: This is impossible to successfully retouch. Please plan ahead.
WAXING: Do this at least a day prior to the photos as
the red marks are difficult to retouch.
NAILS: Your hands/nails will surely be in many of the
photos so ensure they look their best.
POSING: We almost always try for natural poses outside.
GLASS GLARE: Simply put…SOME GLASSES without a non-reflective coating have glare. This can NOT be retouched.
FRESH NEW HAIRCUTS: Get your hair cut at least one week prior to your photo session so it grows in just a bit.
