Photography Tips

New Senior Style Guide!

Please feel free to download and view my new Senior Style Guide. The guide requires the free Adobe PDF viewer that is installed on most computers. If you need the PDF viewer, you can download it free here.

Here are some suggestions to help make your next phtography session a success!


  • White or pastel colors are perfect for lighter backgrounds.
  • Casual outfits in earth tones work best for outdoor photographs.
  • Middle tones or deeper solid colors are ideal for formal portraits.
  • Avoid large prints or patterns that detract from your face.
  • Choose long sleeve shirts or sweaters rather than short sleeve.


  • Plan to wear your hair in a style you are comfortable with.
  • Avoid new haircuts and styles.


  • If you wear glasses normally, you should wear them for the portraits.
  • If possible, have the lens removed from the frames prior to arriving at the studio.

For Girls

  • Keep your make-up natural and fresh.

For Guys

  • A fresh shave is a must.
  • Do not wear a hat prior to arriving at the session.
