Some Ideas for Your Special Portrait
Remember the objective of your portrait...this is a beautiful, sensitive portrayal of the relationship and personality of each person in the portrait. For this reason, keep the clothing and accessories very subtle. Be careful not to dress anyone in an outfit that is not an expression of their personality, or one they do not want to wear. What you want to avoid is having any one person "jump" out of the portrait because he or she is dressed in a lighter or brighter outfit than anyone else. Work for balance, harmony and color coordination.
If there is anyone in your family who is particularly worried about photographs, or has a particular problem, be sure to let Bryan know (in private) at the pre-portrait conference. There are countless techniques and special methods which we can use to minimize these problems; so be sure to bring up anything you wish to discuss. The secret to success here is communication. We are here to help you and our only objective is to create an outstanding portrait which you will treasure forever!
