is the keynote.
Solid colors are best. Avoid large or
bold patterns and bright colors. They draw attention away from the face.
Darker clothing minimizes body size
and light tones tend to emphasize body size.
Necklines are important. A "vee"
or scoop neck is best if your neck is short and your face is full. A
turtleneck or high-necked garment is more flattering if your neck is longer
and your face is slender.
It's best for women to avoid
sleeveless or shirt sleeve blouses. Choose elbow length or long sleeved
Keep the tonal range of clothing
within the group the same. Don't mix light and dark values. Save patterns for
accent items like scarves.
Haircuts or perms, if planned, are
better done several days before the portrait. Have make-up and hair grooming
materials handy for touch up. Avoid glittery make-up
Men should be well shaven (even
around your neck line).
Men's shirts should fit well
especially around the collar; suits should also fit well and have been
recently pressed. Avoid bold patterns on ties.
If you must postpone your portrait session, please give us as much notice as possible, 24 hours is preferred.
