Portrait Styling Tips

1. Wear what makes you feel the most comfortable and expresses your personality!

2. Present yourself as want to sell yourself. What’s the purpose of the image? For example, business wear for a business portrait.

3. Present yourself as your best self. Take the extra time in the morning to make sure you are well groomed and moisturized! Bringing a hair brush or extra makeup for touchups is a good idea.

4. Try to avoid bold distracting patterns, as clothing with pinstripes or a small herringbone patterns can have a strange moiré effect on camera. Solid colours work well to frame your face. Depending on your skin tone, white, beige, grey, blue, green, pink, or black look great. Fluorescent colours don't photograph as well.

5. Feel free to bring options from simple to extra, so we can experiment!

6. A simple black or white t-shirt and jeans always looks great.

7. Try and keep makeup and grooming natural but done with care. We want to accentuate your natural features, not distract from them. You can always bring a lipstick, it's easier to add then take off!

Corporate Styling Tips

A professional, well-fitting shirt and blazer or outfit that has a classic look is the best for longevity. Anything too trendy can look dated if you plan to use the photos for a couple of years. Stay away from short sleeves or tank tops, bare arms may not look as professional.  Don’t choose something with too low of a neckline, and make sure any button-ups don't pull apart at the chest. Try to stay away from really reflective silk ties or distracting patterns.

Casual Styling Tips

If the shoot doesn't call for a formal look, feel free to experiment and showcase your style! Nice, wrinkle free t-shirts, button-ups, sweaters all work well. Anything with a texture like a knit will look great, especially in black and white. Jeans, khakis, or coloured pants all work. Simple lines and styling are usually best to keep the focus on you , but disregard this if you are a fashionista, and rock it.
