Dress For Success

We ask you to dress in formal or cocktail formal attire (think really nice wedding).

Our hand-painted backdrop & contour lighting works best with the right clothing and it is a huge piece of the success of your portrait.

Darker colors in jewel tones work best. Solid colors - NO Patterns please.


Our guiding light is that you can never be dressed too formal. If your family is more comfortable with a casual style, we can still create beautiful portraits, but we ask: please No shorts, No t-shirts, No graphics, No patterns and normally it is best to avoid denim.

Our biggest focus in creating portraits is featuring your face and eyes. If the clothing begins to draw the eyes away from this, then look into another option. When dressing your kids, better too tight then too big/baggy. If you need help or advice, please call and we'd love to help


Our hand painted backdrop was created by an artisan custom for our studio and works BEST with these darker and jewel tones colors for adults.

Having been commissioned to photograph celebrities, featured in magazines around the world, and trusted by thousands of families to create their portraits, our experience has found these guidelines to create simply the best results.
