What to Wear

In general solid color long sleeve clothing works better than clothing with patterns and short sleeves. When photographing a group of people, it is best if everyone wears similar, not necessarily identical colors. Blue jeans or khaki pants and a white shirt for example work well for casual portraits. A formal group portrait looks best when everyone wears complementary colors and shades.

Women should wear light makeup as especially heavy make up can detract from the face of the person. Accessories should also be considered prior to the photo session, as large or particularly shiny accessories can also detract from the photo and create unwanted reflections.
