Clothing Tips
We would like you to bring at least 10 outfits to your shoot. Collect looks that you like for ideas. You can check out magazines, store mannequins, visit online shops, fashion  blogs, or local boutiques to get ideas for your session outfits. Look at all the little details of ensembles you like–clothes, makeup, hair, accessories. By simply starting to notice how professionals put cohesive looks together, you’ll begin to learn from their processes and eventually begin to create outfits of your own that look professionally styled.

Makeup Tips
Flawless complexion, gorgeous eyes, perfectly pouted lips.  This is the stuff of magazines, yes?  No! This is the stuff of your senior portraits!
The best, easiest way to ensure this look of perfection is to schedule an appointment with one of our professional makeup artists, who have been trained to bring out your natural beauty. By having your makeup done at our studio on the day of the session, you’ll have less to worry about and guaranteed professional results. Another alternative is to visit a makeup counter at your local mall to have your makeup applied, although this will require a bit more running around on the day of the session and will leave more of the final outcome to chance as well. Finally, you can also apply your own makeup if you choose, an option that can be especially fun if you have an interest in makeup and fashion. Whatever you decide to do, whether going the DIY route or the professional one, you will want a dewy, fresh look that looks hip yet classic.
