WHATTOWEAR

 

  • Plain & simple, not dated - something with an interesting neckline.  (Look at the pictures on this site)

  • NO neons or brightly colored clothing.

  • Limited Jewelry: Small earrings only if necessary.

  • A collared shirt with a V-neck or a few buttons undone is most popular. Turtlenecks completely hide the neck, which is very unflattering, and should be avoided.

  • No Logos: Okay. NO WRITING ON YOUR SHIRT. Logos mean product placement issues you have to be very careful about legal issues. 

  • Be comfortable in your clothing. You're going to be moving around a lot and may need to squat or bend. 

  • Denim jackets: Sometimes they work - defintely bring it with you if you want to use it. 

  • No shiny leather.

  • Glasses: If you always wear glasses, keep them on for the photo shoot. Lighting can be adjusted to eliminate glare. In difficult cases, the lenses can sometimes be removed from the frames, but it is very important to maintain a natural, comfortable look

  • Avoid bold colors and crazy patterns. They will present adistraction.

  • Anything that has texture is nice. Its adds interest without being distracting.

  • Avoid anything that clashes with your skin tone. Colors that compliment your skin tone are appropriate.

  • No padded shoulders.

  • Don’t try to fit in to something too small.

  • Women should bring the correct bra colors for the wardrobe.

  • (please remember to wear a flesh-toned bra under white garments!)

  • Men should bring a couple of different newish t-shirts in different shades. NO LINT!

  • Please bring clothes on hangars or nicely folded.  Wrinkled clothes make you look bad. 

 

HAIRANDMAKEUP

I have several FABULOUS hair and makeup artists that I work with on a regular basis. They are all professionals and come with absolutely everything you will need for your shoot.  All you have to do is come with clean dry hair and a clean washed face.  The hair/makeup artist is an additional fee paid directly to your artist and you can pay by cash or check the day of your shoot.
