Girl’s Style Guide

Check out our Pinterest Page for inspiration on clothing and accessory choices.


Your clothes help define your look. Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting your clothing.

Bring something formal, something dressy casual, something casual, and if you wish something personal, your uniforms, sports gear and instruments.

  • Solid colors photograph best – drawing attention to your expression instead of your out fit. Stay away from stripes, plaids and heavy patterns. Earth tones always photograph best for girls.
  • If there are parts of your body that might make you uncomfortable, dress appropriately. For example, if you are uncomfortable with the way that your upper arms look, avoid sleeveless and strapless shirts and dresses as they will make your arms appear larger.
  • For formal head shots, your shoulders should be covered. This brings the attention to the face.
  • It’s always a good idea to bring long-sleeved options even when being photographed in the summer.
  • Outfit variety helps make your portraits more interesting – bring both casual and dressy outfits. If you are an athlete, bring your sports gear. Musicians, bring your instrument. Mix it up…have fun…you cannot bring too much!
  • Be prepared to change quickly, the faster you change, the more time we will have to create additional images.
  • Make sure your clothes are wrinkle free and fit before coming in.

Hair & Makeup:

Most seniors are picky about their hair…and we like it that way! We will keep a close eye on your hair, but ultimately your hair is your responsibility. Make sure you check your hair each time you leave the dressing room. We have mirrors in the studio too! If you need to check…just ask!

If you wear makeup, you’ll want to wear makeup for your session. If you don’t wear colored lipstick, try some clear lip gloss to give your lips a little shine. Also, avoid glitter makeup – it does not photograph well.
