We are excited for you to prepare for your photoshoots! Deciding what to wear in your photoshoot is important and these helpful tips will help to make your process easy and fun!
Keep in mind, we will be photographing you mostly from the waist up, but dress HEAD to TOE just in case we pull back (this means to be sure to wear a nice pair of shoes). Please come “photo ready” with your hair & makeup done.
Please be sure to check your confirmation email to confirm how many outfit changes your package comes with.
This page mentions tips for several outfits, however not every package has multiple changes. For those of you with only one outfit, use the following tips to get your outfit just right!
Let's Talk About
What to Wear
Tip #3 – Closer fitting tops – not skin tight, are more figure flattering than baby doll style tops. Peplum shirts are IDEAL, as they define the waist and make it look smaller. Consider tailored shirts and jackets that come right to your hip bone. If you wear a sleeveless shirt, make sure you are happy with your arms and that your bra does not show under your arm or over the shoulder. Also, v-necks are the best! If you wear a spaghetti strap, make sure to wear a strapless bra and avoid tops w/ a “bat wing” style
** NOTE **
Arrive wearing your first outfit and it should contain a solid colored that goes well with brick.
Colors like chocolate brown, fuschia, pink, brick red, black, or grey work great!
Makeup and Hair
Be sure to come to your photo session with your makeup and hair done.
- Wax your eyebrows (if you regularly do it) 3-4 days before coming in, so the redness is totally gone.
- Apply your makeup in natural light (not fluorescent) and consider wearing a light, translucent powder or matte makeup to decrease shine. If your skin tends to be oily, bring oil blotting cloths to use throughout the session
- If you really want to have some shimmer, put a gloss on the lips to keep them shiny
- Consider up-ing your makeup “one level” from how you normally wear it.
- If you do “darker” eyes, lighten your lips.
- Consider a bit of liner on eyes to make them “pop”.
- Cover blemishes with concealer and put a bit of concealer under eyes and in corners.
- Smooth out your foundation well to blend and come down the neck a bit.
- Stay true to you! We wouldn’t recommend making any drastic changes right before your photo session like trying a new hairstyle, cut or color that you’ve never had before just in case you hate it.
- Have your hair colored at least a week before your session to allow time for the color to settle in.
- If you prefer to not style your hair, please be sure it is dry and brushed for your photos.
- Be sure to use bobby pins that are close to your hair color if you are using them.
Outfits to the
Wear your first outfit to the shoot! Bring your others on hangers WRINKLE FREE as removing wrinkles will cost extra.
Your outfits should include EVERYTHING you plan on including: shoes, jewelry, belt, jacket for example, and you will want them separated by outfit.
Remember: If the senior does not present the item, we don’t know to photograph it.
If you take a picture of your outfits on your cell phone prior to arrival, you will easily remember what goes with what.
Please BE PREPARED and don’t bring a large bag of clothes to go through.
Group items that make an outfit together on a separate hanger (or in a hanging bag) with the shoes and your accessories in another bag (or in the bottom of each hanging bag).
Included in Packages 2 and above is a free Wardrobe Consult before your scheduled photoshoot! So there is no need to stress over what outfits to bring the day of your session! Simply schedule a short Zoom call with Kelly to show her your outfit ideas.
Kelly Weaver will personally talk you through your outfit and accessory choices to ensure that your selections fit your photoshoot and your personality! She will also sort through your outfits while you do your makeup to determine the order & give any advice.
