Plan & Prepare

Plan & Prepare

Deciding what to wear for your portrait session is important. HwB recommends solid colors and remember to dress "Head to Toe" because some of your photos will be full length.


Iron wrinkled clothing prior to your session. There will be full length photos, so remember to bring matching shoes,

socks, jewelry etc.


If you are into sports or music, or have a particular interest or accomplishment, bring something that represents the activity.

For example, a football, a guitar, an award, etc.


Get a good night’s sleep

Trim / Paint (clear or neutral colors work best) your nails


Style your hair before your session.

Choose a hairstyle that you are most comfortable with.

If you are getting your hair cut, it’s best to do it a week before your session.


Limit your time in the sun to avoid burns and tan lines.


Apply make-up before you arrive, and also bring it with you for touch-ups.

Apply concealer, if necessary, to minimize blemishes.


Shave/Trim before your session.

Photos will be retouched, so relax and enjoy your session!
