Vera Hogenson Photography | Session Tips
  • Simplicity is the best policy.
  • Avoid busy patterns, prints and bright colors.
  • Save stronger colors and patterns for accessories like scarves and neckties, etc!
  • Avoid wearing yellow or green as they can adversely affect skin color.
  • Bring your make-up supplies for touch-ups.
  • Stay away from logos and branding.
  • Shoes and socks should match the rest of the outfit.
  • Guys remember that a fresh shave is better than a 5’Oclock shadow.
  • Long pants are always most flattering in a portrait.
  • Guys make sure your collar is freshly pressed and wrinkle free.
  • Scoops or v-necks flatter shorter necks and full faces. Turtlenecks or high-necked garments flatter longer necks and slender faces.
  • When it doubt, stick with the classic styles. They will always look good.
  • You can also bring as many props or accessories as you want to your Session.
  • And the most important tip: Do not forget to be yourself and have fun!
