What to wear
Wear mostly solid colors/muted tones.
Choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light).
Choose 1-3 colors and have everyone work within that color palette.
Think "Coordinate", instead of "Match". Your group does not want to look uniformed; instead, you want to look nicely coordinated.
Choose a top with sleeves.
Choose long pants for men/ladies or a skirt below the knee for ladies.
Choose dark socks and footwear.
Keep jewelry simple and minimal.
Do your hair the way you’d normally do it while wearing these clothes.

Maternity Sessions: Bring a pair of little shoes or onsies that you may already have for your baby.
Props: Please notify us prior to your session if you would like to bring a prop. We will advise you if it can be used.
Toddlers: If your child needs a snack to keep him/her attentive, consider something that will not get sticky or stain clothes.
Hair: To help reduce the appearance of flyaway hair, you may want to bring your favorite hair product to smooth hair down. Note: hair editing is not included in any package.
Headshots: Men, please arrive to your session with a very clean shave; any stubble will show in your images and may be highlighted by the natural light. Ladies, neat and natural makeup is best. Features will be visible in any headshot, note that facial hair may be noticeable.
Weather: All Outdoor Sessions are Weather Permitting. Houston is known for it's humidity; it is recommended to bring a small towel to dry off moisture from the face and/or pressed powder to counter shine on the face. Also, there may be mosquitoes; perhaps bring a repellent. And be watchful where you walk due to uneven ground.
Infant Outdoor: Bring 1-2 soft neutral colored blankets in a solid color.
After Your Session
After your session, Anedny will cull your images based on quality. She will carefully hand-edit each of them. This process may take up to two weeks to ensure they are a perfect representation of her art before you see them.
Please note, to maintain professional standards, all images will keep a small artist signature in the bottom right corner. This applies to all print and digital images with copyrights.
Approximately 1 - 2 weeks after your session, we will schedule an ordering appointment, either in-studio or remotely (you will need to use a computer or tablet; preferably using Chrome browser), so you can review your portraits for digital download, art display and purchase from our heirloom collections. This is the ONLY time you will be able to view and make selections from your proofs. We cannot guarantee the safekeeping of any digital image.
