concerns are very real and shared by many other seniors. When
we create your portrait, please follow the guidelines found
below and everything will turn out well.
a) GLASSES: Glare can be a problem so I suggest you
contact your optician and have him or her remove the lenses
prior to your shoot. Its a common request and they do
it often. Most will do it for free. Some will even lend you
a blank pair of frames. The removal of the lens also prevents
any distortion if the lenses are thick. If getting to the
optician is not possible, glare can be removed via retouching,
but theres a cost difference between this type of retouching
and normal retouching.
b) CLOTHING: What you wear is important. This is one
of the big reasons we allow you three outfits with our 30
proof sessions. This gives you ten pictures with each clothing
change. Solid colors are much better than prints. Avoid very
dark or white tops. Avoid sleeveless tops. Bring one dressy
outfit, one casual one, and one thats middle of the
road. Another reason why I offer three clothing changes is
to provide you with a variety so mom and dad AND you can have
the outfits of choice! When we schedule your session, Ill
go into more detail as to why the above suggestions work well.
c) ACNE: Acne is a real concern and can be removed
through retouching. Although higher priced than a basic package,
if you happen to break out right before your scheduled session,
every pimple can be removed when we make the enlargements.
d) BRACES: Braces can be removed via retouching. As
with any extra, there is an additional cost, but when you
get your reprints made, youll never know you were wearing
them at the time the picture was created.
e) NERVOUS: Many people dislike being in front of a
camera. This is something I fully understand. Ill work
with you to get you relaxed. Additionally, youre more
than welcome to bring along a friend or parent for support.
I hope the above helps you. I look forward to creating your
