How to dress for your portrait session:
For cap & gown portraits, simply arrive in your everyday clothes. Caps & gowns will be available for use during the event.
- Ladies: a V-neck shirt is ideal due to the cut of the graduation gown. For business portraits, please arrive dressed in your desired attire. A hair and makeup mirror will be available.
- Gentlemen: studio lighting will enhance the visibility of any facial stubble if you have not recently shaved. For the best cap and gown portraits, men should wear a collared shirt and tie. Although, Grad Images will have a faux shirt available as needed.
In addition to your individual portraits, group photographs can also be taken with friends and family.
From start to finish, the entire process should take a few minutes. There is no sales pitch, no sitting fee, and nothing to buy at the event. Your proofs will be password protected online for you to view at your convenience.
