A great portrait will project a professional image that will truly represent you and attract new business. Follow the recommendations below to look your best.


Medium tone suits of grey or brown are good choices. Please avoid herringbone or plaid patterns. Shirts in light to medium tones work best. French blue is always flattering. Choose a tie with an understated pattern. Bring several ties and an alternate choice of shirt and jacket. If you plan to get a haircut, try to schedule it at least one week before your portrait.


Medium tone colors are best. If you are not wearing a suit, please choose long sleeves. We will work with you on jewelry and accessory selection for your portrait, so please bring several options. Wear a little more make-up than usual on portrait day, and bring your make-up bag and hairbrush for touch-ups. Even if you don't normally wear make-up, we recommend a light foundation or powder to reduce shine and even your skin. Remember to bring several tops and an alternate selection of everything. Now is not the time to try a new hairstyle or color, wear your hair the way you like it best.


Use the guidelines for individual portraits above, remembering to bring an alternate clothing selection to assure coordination with your colleagues. You don't want any individual to stand out because the clothing is too light or bright as compared to the rest of the group.

Clothing that is too tight or too loose will not hang properly and may have too many folds or creases. Dress from head to toe - some poses may include your feet.

See any of the publications below for more suggestions.


Try to schedule your portrait early in the day. Morning is when we all look our best. We also recommend that you choose a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. (Mondays and Fridays sometimes get crazy when your clients have unexpected requests.)
