The most important aspect of your wardrobe choice is that you look and feel good in it! That said, there are a few things that will help to make sure YOU are the star of your photo - and not your top. It is best to avoid loud patterns, such as stripes and polkadots or busy floral prints. Logos should be avoided if possible as well. Ideally you want to choose solid colours that you look great in! If you are unsure, bring a few options and we can look through them together. Be sure your clothing has been pressed and is as wrinkle free as possible ( aka please don't bring them bunched up in a bag)! Hangers are your friend!
Less is more. If your ears are pierced, by all means wear earrings, but a simple stud is preferable to anything dangly. I recommend avoiding necklaces altogether as they can be distracting.
Please arrive make-up ready.* I recommend natural looking shadows, blushes and lipstick. Mascara is a great way to define lashes. If you choose to wear false lashes - a natural looking set will photograph best.
* A make-up artist may be hired upon request for an additional fee.
If you wear glasses and have contacts, it would be great to use the contacts so that you may be photographed with and without your frames.
Red eyes? Eye drops work miracles!
Lips - this is for everyone. Please use a lip balm/chapstick the day before and day of your shoot. Dry lips do not look great in photos and we want you to look better than great! So remember to use and bring: Lip Balm, Lip Balm, LIP BALM!
If you will be wearing make-up, it would be great of you could bring a powder or blotting paper for touchups and shine. Also, a comb or brush would be handy to bring for any hair touchups. And of course don't forget what? LIP BALM!
