Style Guide

Looking great on the day of your portrait may sound like a daunting task but it can actually be pretty easy if you keep some basic guidelines in mind! And that’s where our style guide is here to help!


Below are some general tips that broadly apply to almost any shoot:

  • Don’t match your pet! If you have a white pet, and wear a white shirt then your pet will disappear into your clothing. The same goes for black on black and brown on brown.

  • Plain clothing with no images and minimal pattering usually photographs very well and supports a classic look.

  • Neutral tones and jewel tones will serve you better than loud or primary colors.

  • Coordinate the whole family for a unique and seamless portrait!

For Women

  • Long sleeves tend to be more flattering than short sleeves.

  • Bringing in some makeup and hair supplies for touchups is encouraged.

  • Clothing with textures will photograph better than clothing with bold patterns.

For Men

  • Collard shirts with long sleeves offer a more professional look and may be rolled up for a casual option.

  • Short-sleeved polos with minimal patterns allow for less restrictive movement and are a more casual option.

  • Dress shoes are encouraged over sneakers or sandals.

  • Business casual attire is a good rule of thumb when picking accessories or other attire.
