-Keep it simple
-Solid colors are best. Avoid large or bold patterns and bright colors. They draw attention away from the face.
-Long sleeve dresses and shirts are recommended. They draw attention away from the arms and focus it on the face. (Short sleeves are acceptable for infants and small children).
-Coordinate your attire from head to toe, carefully selecting appropriate shoes and stockings.
High School Senior Portraits
-Casual outfits in earth tones work best for outdoor photographs.
-Middle tones or deeper solid colors are ideal for formal portraits
-Bright colors look great with our color key backgrounds
-Avoid large prints or patterns that detract from your face
-Choose long sleeved shirts or sweaters rather than short sleeved.
-Hair... Plan to wear your hair in a style you're comfortable with.
-Avoid new cuts or styles.
-Glasses... If you wear glasses, wear them for Your portrait, but have the lenses removed.
-For Girls... Keep your make-up natural and fresh.
-For Guys... A fresh shave is a must! If you have a beard or mustache, make sure it's neatly trimmed.
-Darker clothing tends to minimize body size, and light tones tend to emphasize body size.Necklines are important. A "vee" or "scoop" neck is best if your neck is short and your face is full. A turtle neck or high necked garment is more flattering if your neck is longer and your face is slender.
-Dress everyone in the same style of clothing. Do not mix casual and formal attire.
-Keep the tonal range of clothing within the group the same. Do not mix light and dark values. Save patterns for accent items like scarves and neckties.
-White or light pastel clothing, shoes, stockings, pants or dresses look best in portraits taken against a white or light background. Save stronger colors and patterns for accent items
-Shoes and socks are also important. Mixing dark sandals with white tennis shoes and socks will draw the eye to lightest area in the photograph.
To assure a successful family portrait, it is best for each member of the family bring along several additional clothing choices.
