Preparing for a Portrait Session

A good way to think of preparing for a studio portrait session is think of it like going out to an important event like a wedding or a formal.

Hair and Makeup

This is obviously a personal choice. If asked, I would suggest that you get either get hair and makeup done professionally or do it yourself. The reason being is simply it looks better in photos. Also, it is really worth getting your nails done.


For the best results just keep it simple.

1) Everyone wears dark clothing like black or dark blue.

2) Everyone wears the same style of light clothes.

*Tip* If you are someone who is conscious of your arms, please wear long sleeves.

3) No stripes or patterns. Block colours only.

4) Children, no T-Shirts with Star Wars, Marvel etc.
