The most flattering portraits tend to follow these guidelines:
If you need help, email or call us & we can review your options, helping guide you on what works best for our studio & lighting and final display in your home.
We are a luxury fine art portrait studio, most of our families will choose to wear formal attire with men wearing a tuxedo, suit, or other formal/cocktail attire.
Many will opt for traditional clothing when appropriate.
Some families will dress a little more casual – thinking of what they might wear to their most fancy friend’s wedding:
Be mindful of your shoes – shoes/feet WILL show in many of your family’s portraits
Wear Solid Colors In Neutrals Or Jewel Tones (avoid patterns)
Men - while women can get away with white, please do not wear a white shirt unless you wear a vest or jacket over it - men's white shirts take attention away from faces
While we lean toward no denim, we realize for some families that is the most formal attire they own, if that's the case, please - no holes in your denim attire - this tends to photograph as lumpy.
For Men, Women and kiddos alike, please:
No T-shirts No Shorts No Glitter outfits No Denim with Holes
Do NOT wear anything with Glitter – it makes a mess of our studio & we have to hire special cleaners to come in.
Shoes and feet will show in the majority of family portraits. Please be mindful when picking out outfits not to forget matching/complimentary shoe options.
While women can sometimes get away with white, for men a white dress shirt draws all of the attention away from the faces of everyone in the portrait – so avoid doing so unless wearing a vest or jacket over the shirt.
We have a dressing room you can get dressed in.
