Colors to choose
Solid colors usually photograph the best and shades of red, blue, yellow, purple and green are pleasing. Please try not to permit your child to wear solid white!
Style to wear
Long sleeves usually photograph better then short sleeves. Sleeveless blouses or dresses should be avoided completely.
Hair Style and what to avoid
Try to avoid having your child's hair cut within one week of your scheduled picture day. Freshly cut hair, especially short hair, does not always lie just right. Avoid large bows or hair ribbons and if your child has long hair do not have it pulled back tightly.
By following these few guidelines you should be assured of a more pleasing and natural photograph of your child.
“There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.”
“Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past”
“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art”
“I always thought good photos were like good jokes. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.”
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
“You cannot depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus”
