Please bring a variety of outfits that fit you well, including a classic outfit in medium to dark tones for traditional poses. Clothing that is too tight or too loose will not hang properly and may have too many folds or creases. Avoid clothing with words, logos, stripes and loud patterns as they distract from your expression. Dress from head to toe; many poses will include your feet. Bring accessories; jewelry, hats, belts, and scarves. Also, make sure your undergarments (unwanted straps, etc.) are not showing. Tan lines and sun burns cannot be fixed without expensive artwork.
Wear your hair the way you like it best. If you plan to have a haircut, try to schedule it at least a week before your session in case you don't care for the results. Also, a fresh cut may reveal untanned skin during the summer. Guys, come in with a fresh shave. Five o'clock shadows cannot be retouched. Light hairspray will tame loose ends that may catch light and show in a picture.
Wear your make-up as you would for an evening out. Even if you don't normally wear make-up, a light foundation and powder help reduce shine and even your skin tone. Heavier make-up applied near the end of your session is fun for dramatic black and white photos.
I can work with anything, posters, uniforms, awards, collections, cars, instruments, sports equipment, hats, etc.
Let me know in advance if you're bringing your pet and please bring someone to care for it during the session.
Look at your favorite CD covers and magazines for ideas and bring them in. I'm open to any suggestions!
