- Simple, plain outfits photograph
the best, as they are not distracting. Our aim is to produce
a timeless beautiful portrait of you, and the best way to
begin is to remember one word ... simplicity.
- Your clothes should be plain
and simple, not loud and busy.
- If you wear
glasses, it would be helpful if you could wear a pair with
empty rims for the day of your appointment. This would be
useful as glasses not only catch light reflections, but also
can deform the face-line.
- Contact lenses
are no problem.
Bring a light top, and dark top. Also bring one complete outfit.
White turtlenecks or sweaters are also good. Knits photograph
well, as there are fewer wrinkles. Bring several nice, simple
dresses too. Always wear long sleeves!
Nature colours such as green, brown, navy or gold
are very good. Slacks are easier to work in, but not required.
Bring something you feel good in! Again, knits are the best.
One of the most complimentary outfits to be photographed in
is a v-neck sweater with matching blouse underneath. Also
belted blouses are very attractive.
Eye shadow should be applied lightly and with care;
the centre point of interest in a fine portrait is the eyes.
Apply two coats of mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
Wear your other make-up as usual. Bring all your make-up with
you, in case any minor modification is required.
If you would like to be photographed in a coat and tie, wear
them to the studio. Wear simple, plain coats, which will not
distract from you. Shirt and tie selection are completely
up to you. For the casual photographs, plain sweaters and
/or shirts are best. Turtlenecks, knits good. Wear long sleeves.
Nature colours such as green, brown, navy and gold
are very good. Outdoors, definitely wear a casual outfit,
such as a sweater and shirt.
- Be sure to
shave just prior to your sitting time as there is no way to
hide a "five o'clock shadow" in colour photography.
