Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Kent Smith Photography?
What do I wear?
Bring at least 1 or 2 outfits with long sleeves…even in the middle of July. Even the slimmest person can look heavier in sleeveless tops.
If you have trouble deciding what to wear, bring it all! Our photographers are experts at helping you choose the clothing that flatters you the best.
Bring accessories! Hats, jewelry, shoes, jackets…Anything you can take on and off in the camera room can help add variety and fun to your outfits.
How many outfits do I get?
How should I style my hair?
Make sure your hair is exactly the way you wish it to appear in the finished photographs. Any hair hanging in your face (like bangs) can cause unflattering shadows in your images. Waiting to do your hair or makeup at your session time will dramatically shorten your camera room time and number of images that will be taken.
What about makeup?
We strongly recommend wearing makeup (at least foundation and blush)! Even if you don’t normally wear makeup and want to look natural in your photos, makeup is still necessary. Not wearing makeup will cause your skin and face to appear washed out under certain lighting styles, which limits the variety in your session.
What if it rains?
Do you know my yearbook requirements?
Can you help me pick a frame?
What’s the catch with the free family session?
Special note to mom and dad:
If you are unable to attend the session, please take a moment to write down any requests and send it with your senior to the session. Make note of expression preferences (smile vs. serious), if you are trying to match a previous senior’s portrait, or if you have specific concerns.
