Good to Know

Preparing for Your Session

Clothing Choices:

  • Solid colors photograph best. Solid colors draw attention to your expression instead of your outfit. We recommend solid colors for your yearbook shot.
  • Variety is important. If one of your outfits is light colored, bring another that is dark. If one is more dressy, bring another that is casual. If one is short-sleeved or sleeveless, bring another that's long-sleeved. You get the idea. Outfit variety helps make your portraits more interesting.
  • What colors work best? Just about any color photographs well. If you're not sure about how a particular outfit will look, bring it along and Pati and her staff will help you to pick.
  • Most importantly, wear what you like and what makes you feel good! If you like what you have on, you'll love your portraits!
  • Come to your session wearing your first outfit.


  • Pay special attention to your eyes and lips when it comes to makeup. These are the first features people see in your portraits. Be careful with glitter. It looks pretty in person, but shows up as white dots in your pictures. Clear or colored lip gloss adds to your picture and gives your lips a POP!
  • It's very important that you avoid spending too much time in the sun before your session. It's almost impossible to fix sunburn or peeling in your pictures. Tan lines from swimsuits or tank tops can be corrected, but at your expense.


  • If you are usually clean shaven, make sure you shave before your pictures. Our lights will pick up each and every hair on your face. If you usually have some stubble, that's fine, but just know, it will be very visible on your face.
