The secret behind great photos is to wear what you love, pick clothing you feel comfortable and confident in. It is a great idea to even take your outfit out for a spin before your session day! Prepare your outfit ahead of time and try to find colors, tones and patterns that are complimentary, rather than matching. Complimentary and contrasting colors are great ideas, especially neutral and earth tones. Try to avoid logos, neon colors and pinstripes.

Watch out for wrinkles! Take the time to iron and smooth out your clothing the night before your session. Be sure to take your phone and wallet out of your pockets, and remove any hair ties or bands from your wrists. I'll be carrying a bag for us during your session to hold your items.


Consider if you would like to have multiple looks and pack an outfit change! This is a great way to capture the different sides to your personality. I recommend having a more formal outfit and a casual day wear outfit - don’t forget to style the shoes! This will give you more variety in your photos and lots of options for when it comes to selecting new headshot or profile picture.

When it comes to hair and makeup there are two schools of thought.

  1. The first, is to invest in having your hair and makeup done professionally. These photos are important and you deserve to feel your best! During our time together it might be worth the peace of mind knowing that your hair is in place and your eyes are popping!
  2. Alternatively, some of my clients prefer to do their own hair and makeup because it is how they style themselves everyday and how they want to represent themselves! Doing your own hair and makeup is a great way to guarantee that you you look like you!

Either way - you do YOU! I recommend doing what you are most comfortable with and besides, your smile will steal the show anyway.


I treat all my clients with tremendous care, I want you to genuinely feel comfortable and confident in my hands. I will take the time to get to know you and discover what is important to you and for your photos. No need to worry about modeling and posing, I'll will give you an easy crash course on posing and throughout our session I will give you direction and fun prompts to get you acting natural. All you need to do is smile and let the day be about you!
