Preparing for your Session at Target Portrait Studios

Tips for a Great Photography Session

What to Wear for Beautiful Photos

  • Keep it simple.  Coordinate your colors and patterns. Darker clothing slims.
  • Don't forget the bottom half. Our photographer may suggest a full-length pose. Make sure you coordinate clothing from head to toe.
  • Frame your face. Scoops or v-necks flatter shorter necks and full faces. Turtlenecks or high-necked garments flatter longer necks and slender faces.
  • Keep clothing consistent. Dress everyone in the same style. Don't mix casual and formal clothing.

Coordinate Colors

  • Wear light on white. Light pastel or white clothing looks best against a light-colored or white photography backgrounds.
  • Wear dark on dark. Dark clothing looks best against darker backgrounds and creates a more formal mood in your images.
  • Add Accents. Show your style in small accents. Save stronger colors and patterns for accessories like scarves and neckties. 

Pick Studio Props and Backdrops

  • Ask for advice. If you're not sure what you want in your photo session, our photographers can help you choose a background that suits your needs.
  • Add your personality. For a personal touch, bring a favorite toy or your own props to a photography session. View additional ideas under our Prop Ideas page.
