Wear Camera Flattering Clothes
Although a lot of people like to hide under baggy clothes, they can actually make you look bigger, particularly in photos. Choose slim fitting clothes in darker shades. If you have an area that you don’t want to be showcased; ruffles, sheer layers, and draping work wonders in distracting the eye from those areas. Shirts with sleeves are also very flattering on most adults.
Below we've got great suggestions for all kinds of ages and groupings that step through our studio door.
Here are some suggestions for woman. Wear your day makeup; mascara, lipstick, blush, eyeshadow all work great.
If you don’t wear makeup consider some lipstick to define your mouth and some mascara to define your eyes.
Schedule haircuts and salon visits up to three weeks before your photo session. You want to be comfortable with your style.
We’ve found hair worn down will be more flattering than hair worn up. But if you love your hair up, bring what you need to style it at your session and inform your photographer.
Some women choose to go get a blow out and hair style before arriving at the studio.
Glasses glare can be a real issue in a portrait. The best eye glass scenario is wearing glasses with non-reflection coating them on and WITHOUT transition lens. Transition lens will turn the lenses dark when a light source is directed at them, then making your eye area darker than the rest of your face.
If you wear transition glasses or don't have a reflection control coating on your lenses consider asking your optician to remove your lens for the photo session. This works only if you have a second pair to get you here!
