What to wear
Keep your choice of outfits simple.
White, cream, nude and grey tones work well on a white background.
Blacks and greys on a black background.
Bring your wardrobe on hangers to prevent it from getting creased - don't wear it.
You can do as many wardrobe changes as you like - time permitting.
If you're still in doubt, bring your whole wardrobe
Keep hairstyles simple and generally tied back.
Hands and Nails
So often overlooked, ensure you trim your nails. If you colour your fingernails, choose a neutral or clear tone.
Keep makeup to a minimum.
Think of your face as a template. A little foundation, concealer, blush, mascara and lip gloss are all you need.
I recommend natural makeup over complete makeovers but can arrange professional makeup for an additional fee.
Drink water the day before and on the day of your session. It reduces puffiness.
I want your photos to stand out from the average dancer's portfolio photos.
I use a simple one-light setup on black backgrounds, silhouette images, and high-key lighting for white backgrounds.
I typically use a simple one-light setup against black-and-white backgrounds and for silhouettes.
I want your photos to stand out from the average dancer's photos.

Time flies. Let me make it stand still.

I want to meet your expectations, so I will ask you to send me examples from my portfolio or elsewhere that you like.

Bring the grandparents - the photos will mean the world to everyone over time.
