See below for some basic tips and tricks for general styling!

I welcome clients to send pictures of their outfits options or pairings for my review and suggestions.

Keep it simple.

Neutral Colors always photograph best! They keep the focus on you and compliment every skin tone and location. I recommend colors like white, gray, black, tan, etc.

Consider Fit.

I recommend choosing clothing that is well-fitted, instead of overly tight or baggy. We don't want to lose you in a baggy dress or be distracted by clothing that's too small. Again, choose clothes that keep the focus on YOU, not it.


Clothing like skirts and dresses create eye-catching movement in images and flattering lines for you!

Head to Toe.

Do a check from top to bottom. Keep your hair out of your face, follow the style tips to the left, and keep your shoes simple & not distracting.
