Getting Ready For Your Portrait
We at HD Photography we know how important portraits are to you and your family. We also know that it may have been a few years since you and your family have had a professional portrait taken, so you want to make sure that you will have a portrait that will last.
Here are some tips and ideas to prepare for – and get the most out of – your upcoming professional HD photography session.
- FORMAL PORTRAITS
- CASUAL PORTRAITS
- THEMED PORTRAITS
What’s Your Style?
Decide on the “tone” of your portrait. Choose formal clothing for a more traditional look, or choose casual or themed clothing if that best fits your family’s style. DONT WEAR BUSY PATTERNS DURING PHOTOS.
Church directory and family photography programs for everyone
Creating meaningful connections is an important step in building and growing your church community and helping you achieve your goal of fostering families that feel connected. HD Photography partners with you and offers photography and church pictorial directory tools that build these connections. We photograph at all churches and religions. HD Photography has the finest quality church directories and portraits
Clothing: Solid colors work best and are more slenderizing. Avoid busy patterns and choose a color theme that unifies the look of your family.
Hair: Avoid changing your hairstyle or cutting your hair right before your session. Your photographer will help you identify improperly placed hair, but make sure you like the look and let the photographer know your preferences.
Jewelry: If you have jewelry that has special meaning to you, wear it! Mention to your photographer that you would like them to show it in your portrait.
Make-up: Apply make-up as you would normally for an evening out. Pay special attention to your eyes: the focal point in a portrait. An extra coat of mascara can help bring out your eyes, and bring lipstick and powder for touch-ups.
Glasses: If you wear glasses all the time, you’ll want to have them in your portraits. That’s the real you! We will work on the glare so those are not on your glasses in the photos.
Editing: HD PHOTOGRAPHY offers portrait retouching that can soften facial lines and correct blemishes and scratches, scars, etc. We can also whiten teeth and eyes.
|Did You Know?|
You may invite extended family members in a multi-generational photo. With permission of your organization, you may bring your household pet to your portrait session. We know they are part of the family!
You can bring in props to express you and your family’s personality.
Some popular choices are instruments, sports equipment
and hobby items.
One BIG problem with old-fashioned Directory programs from the old traditional companies is that they’re usually outdated by the time they are published. What about NEW members of your Congregation that have joined since your last Directory was photographed? What about those Families that couldn’t take advantage of the opportunity to be photographed during the short span of time that pictures were being taken? Perhaps they were sick, or on vacation, at College or perhaps on Military duty overseas? What about Families that were reluctant to participate this time because of a bad experience they might have had the last time? All these factors contribute to a Directory program that’s really NOT INCLUSIVE of your entire Congregation. We make phone calls to schedule photography appointments for your members, we make reminder calls, we don’t need a host during photography sessions, etc. We specialize in creating easy-to-accomplish projects and events that are fun, relaxed and family-friendly.
