Ensure You Look Your Best On Your Matric Farewell Portrait Photo Shoot

With matric farewell parties being the order of the day over the next couple of months, here are a few tips on how to prepare for your matric farewell photo shoot to ensure that you will look even more awesome when your portrait photos are taken on the day.

  1. The winter sun in South Africa can be very harsh so don’t overdo sun tanning, especially the week before the party. No one wants to appear red from sunburn on the photographs.
  2. If you want to get a haircut, why not do it about two weeks before the time. This will ensure your hair looking great, but the “new haircut” look will be gone.
  3. Be yourself. Wear clothes that will make you feel good and look great. Don’t overdo it. This goes for makeup as well.
  4. Glasses can be a problem when taking photos, as glare on the lenses can cause a problem. Why not ask the optometrist for a loan frame for the day without glasses, just for the photos. You’ll still look the same, but definitely without the reflections.
  5. Accessorize. Ensure that you select your accessories correctly, so as to compliment your outfit.
  6. Ensure that you also double check the details, such as facial hair and painting fingernails perfectly. This may seem insignificant, but it makes a big difference in the final portrait photos. Especially if you are going to print an enlargement that will be hanging on the wall.
  7. Schedule your photo shoot well in advance. This will ensure that you can schedule the perfect time that suits you for your photo shoot.

Dear Petrus ,
Paul & I would like to express our appreciation for the great job you and your team did on our christening and holiday-at-the-sea photos on our recent visit to South Africa. They turned out great and our friends in the UK love them! We were extremely happy with the service we received. Our order was handled professionally and on time before our return to the UK. I would definitely recommend your business to other friends and family in South Africa. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Regards

Paul & Lynette Marx, London, UK

After shooting the expecting mother and father a couple of weeks ago, I could not wait to meet young Jordan. He definately was the man of the hour when the shoot was done and it was very enjoyable shooting Tertia, Henry and little Jordan.

I hope Jordan will bring lots of love, laughter and fun in the years to come.

Henry, Tertia and Jordan

Henry, Tertia and Jordan – Very proud parents!
