How To Prepare

What are you preparing for?

Clothing

  • Solid colours are best.
  • Long sleeve dresses and shirts are recommended for close-ups because they focus attention on the face.
  • Coordinate your attire from head to toe.
  • Darker clothing tends to minimize body size.
  • A v-neck or scoopneck is best if your neck is short and your face is full. A high neck garment is more flattering if your neck is longer and your face is slender.
  • If you have a school uniform then that is all you need.
  • You may be required to wear your school uniform for your grad photos.
  • Please do not leave valuables unattended, Artona is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Grooming

For Her

  • Make sure you like your hair style before your session.
  • If you do get a trim, make it just that — a small trim.
  • Make sure your bangs are not too short. You will be wearing a graduation hat that covers part of your forehead towards the end of your session.
  • Use your regular makeup. Touch up all blemishes. Do your nails the day before. Bring all of the stuff you need to groom yourself. You do not need to have a heavy application of makeup for professional photography. Look natural and your photographs will reflect that.

For Him

  • Casual hair is popular, but stray ends cannot be retouched. A haircut, one week before your sitting is perfect.
  • We cannot retouch a five o’clock shadow. We recommend you shave a couple of hours prior to your session.
  • Wash your face before coming in, to clean any unwanted oils from your skin.
