Tip Tuesday "Press your clothes!"

It is so important to bring your clothes in freshly pressed. Even a t-shirt will show wrinkles that can be costly to remove after the fact. Even a brand new shirt can have unsightly creases from packaging. Bring your outfits in on hangers so they stay looking nice between home and our studio.

Tip Tuesday "Stripes"

Stripes are one thing a professional photographer usually does not like to see their subject wearing. And later, the subject usually regrets it too. Why? Because horizontal stripes can make a person look wider or more broad. And a bold strip no matter what, always becomes too distracting and takes the attention away from the person. Notice the stripe this young man is wearing. It is horizontal, but it’s small stripes, tone on tone and doesn’t distract from the portrait.

Tip Tuesday "Long Sleeves"

Tank tops are popular for girls to wear, as well as sleeveless and cap sleeves. But in a portrait, it’s not the best choice. Opt to layer with a jacket or sweater to complete your outfit. Make sure it has a longer sleeve and is a solid color.

Tip Tuesday "Glasses"

Our photographers are highly trained in doing everything they can to avoid glass glare. And what can’t be avoided in the camera, can be fixed by our artist before we print your finished portraits. What’s harder to avoid in regards to glasses is transition lenses. When your senior portraits are taken outside, it’s natural for the lenses to become dark. This we want to avoid but we need your help. Contact your optometrist and ask if you can borrow frames without lenses. Or remove the lenses yourself when you get here. It might sound strange but trust us, you won’t be able to tell you are missing the lenses.
