|^TOP What time
should I arrive?
We recommend that you arrive approximately 10
minutes before your appointment time. This
allows you to have your clothes and props
carried in and your paperwork taken care of
before time for your sitting. If you have an
appointment at 2:00 and you arrive late or youíre
not ready, you will have less time in the camera
room. If you need time to finish getting ready,
please arrive early enough to be ready on time.
If you are running late, you may have to
eliminate one of your outfits.
^TOP What if the weather is bad?
If itís raining or unusually windy, go
ahead and bring your outfits and we will
complete your indoor poses and if the weather
doesnít clear up we will reschedule your
outside poses. Itís easier to find time to
reschedule a couple outfits than your whole
sitting. If itís just cloudy or overcast, you
got lucky, because the lighting is awesome!
^TOP Can I Bring Props?
Go ahead and bring the props you would like
in your photographs. That makes your poses more
uniquely you! Some popular choices are: sports
uniforms, awards, trophies, football, hockey
stick, baseball bat, band instruments, items
from your hobbies or collections, cars,
motorcycles, tractors or whatever is more you.
^TOP What if I wake up with a blemish?
Donít worry about minor blemishes. Anything
that you order from will be retouched and they
will be gone! If you have more severe acne, for
an additional fee your poses will still be
retouched. If you have a mole or scar they are
not automatically retouched, because they are
part of you. If you prefer to have them
lightened or removed please inform us when you
place your order.
^TOP I donít know what to bring for my outfits.
Try to bring a variety of styles and colors
of outfits. Itís hard to give you the best
variety if you bring all tank tops or 4 black
shirts. Make sure itís colors and styles that
make you look your best. If youíre unsure
about a couple outfits, bring them along and weíll
decide when you get here. If you canít agree
on outfits with your parents, try to compromise.
Let them choose their favorite outfit that would
be for their formal pose at home and maybe theyíll
let you bring your choice for wallets for
school. Bring something dressy, a little more
relaxed and something more casual, depending
upon what sitting you have and number of outfits
allowed. Very busy patterns and stripes are not
always the best choice.
Please try to have your outfits together and
organized, that way it will take you less time
in the dressing room and allow you more time in
front of the camera! Make sure your clothes are
not wrinkled; it really will show in the

Try to avoid getting sunburn - red and
peeling skin is not attractive in your photos.
If you are a life guard itís usually best to
plan your sitting before the end of summer.
Often times by the end of summer your skin gets
a little ďleatheryĒ.
^TOP Can I bring my pet?
Yes. We prefer that they are house broken if
they are to be inside, otherwise we can always
go outside. We also request that someone comes
with you to take care of the pet when not in
your photo. If your pet has a special toy or
treat that gets their attention at home go ahead
and bring it, it could be helpful.
^TOP What about glass glare?
Some glasses glare more than others. If you
want to make sure you donít have to pay for
artwork to remove the glare, check with your
optometrist about borrowing frames to match your
glasses to use during your sitting.
^TOP Can I bring a friend or sibling along to be
in my photographs?
Sure, bring them along. You are more than
welcome to have a couple of poses with a
sibling, friend, girlfriend, boyfriend or parent
at no extra charge. Please try to not make your
sitting into a party or family reunion. If youíre
bringing someone with you, make it someone that
you are relaxed and comfortable with. The wrong
person or too much confusion can stress you out!
^TOP I would like to change my hairstyle.
Quick changes are fine. If your style change
is going to require additional time, please
inform us when you book your sitting so we can
allow adequate time or book your appointment for
two different days. Please make sure you have
your brushes, hair ties, hair spray or anything
you will need along with you.
Donít forget your makeup and powder for any
last minute touch ups.
Bring your brush, hairspray or any hair
products you might need.
