For the outdoor sessions:

Please make sure to bring bug repellent spray and a shoe shine/clean cloth (walking in the park trail will cover with dust your shoes).


• Wear clothes that make you comfortable and reflect your personality.

• Bring multiple outfits. Select a variety of outfits, as you desire.

• Coordinate your outfit from head to toe.

• Keep the tonal range of clothing in the same group; don't mix light & dark in the same outfit.

• Select 2-3 complementing solid colors in tones such as greens, blues, purples, burgundies, khakis, black, navy and denim.

• Avoid large prints, stripes, busy patterns and bright colors - these overwhelm and create distractions in your portrait.

• A black shirt or top is always a good choice.

• Bring appropriate shoes, socks and a belt for each outfit.

• Each person in a family or group portrait should be dressed in a similar color or tonal range.

• For family or group portraits, coordinating outfits is a good practice. Jeans or khakis and a white or black shirt is always a good choice.

• Be sure the clothes you select fit properly, especially shirt collars.

• Short sleeves are OK, but long sleeves are best. Be sure to bring at least 1-2 long sleeve tops.

• Dark clothes will help to make you look thin.

• Traditional clothing styles will better stand the test of time.

• Medium to dark clothes look the best on dark backgrounds.

• Medium to light colors look the best on lighter colored backgrounds.

• Earth tones are best for outdoor portraits.

• Bring all clothes on hangers. Be sure clothes are not wrinkled.

• If you plan to wear a tie, bring an appropriate blazer or business suit. A shirt and tie with no blazer/suit jacket does not photograph well.

• For executive portraits, be sure your clothes are appropriate for your type of work and clothes are clean and pressed. Gentlemen may bring multiple ties; ladies may bring multiple accessories – I will help to select the combination that works best.


• Wear your hair in your normal style.

• Do not change your hairstyle in the days before your portrait session.

• If you want to get a haircut, schedule it one week before your portrait session.

• A fresh shave is important for men. Neatly trim beard or mustache.

• Bring your hair care/styling products.


• Minor blemishes and scars will be removed by retouching.

• Avoid sunburn and tan lines.

• Women keep make-up simple and natural*.

• Avoid makeup with sparkles and SPF. You can bring your makeup to the session.

• Your nails will show in some portraits. Be sure fingernails and toenails are polished and not chipped.


• Keep jewelry simple and to a minimum.

• Bring appropriate jewelry for each outfit.


Props are recommended. Bring props that are a part of your life and personality and/or profession. For example:

• Musical Instrument

• Leather Jacket

• Letter Jacket

• Sports Uniform/Jersey

• Hats

• Sports Equipment (lacrosse stick, bat, football, etc.)

• Sunglasses

• Hobby Items

• Cars/Motorcycles

• Pets (Pets are welcome, but please call in advance. Bring a leash and toys/treats to keep their attention.)
