Clothing

Great to Coordinate.

Coordinating outfits and dressing in complementary colours is a great idea for family photos. Bright and solid colours make for the best photos.Keep clothing simple so as not to date your photos.

Glasses

Glasses are cool.

 Glare is not.

Wearing glasses may result in glass glare and/or shadows on the face, and are more difficult to retouch. For best results, please consider asking your child to remove their glasses for their photos.

Grooming

Look your best.

Please check that hair is groomed and neat, especially children's. Hair cuts should be booked a week in advance for the best look. Hats are not recommended.
