Here are a few tips for your photosession:

• Do not try anything new with your hair (style or coloring) for your photosession (you do not want to risk a hairstyle disaster);
• Do get 8 hours of sleep the night before your photosession (to reduce bagginess under the eyes);
• Wear heavier makeup than normal (this looks better in your images);
• Bring your makeup compact, comb, and brush to your photosession (for periodic touching up);
• To avoid unnecessary wrinkles, if possible, try not to drive with your first look on;
• Avoid salty foods for at least 48 hours before your photosession (this mitigates water retention);
• Bring bottled water to keep hydrated (especially for outdoor photosessions);
• If you are using one of our make-up artists, DO wear (and bring with you) your normal foundation (unless we tell you otherwise);
• In all cases, an escort is suggested (mandatory parental chaperon if the subject is a minor/under 18 years of age);
• Do wear normal or natural length French manicure (w/ white tips), manicured "naked" nails, or some other solid nail color that coordinates with your attire.
