About the Sessions
Each Couture Kids Session is designed to be a one-of-a-kind experience for your child. We have a growing wardrobe of fashionable clothes and accessories to help them feel like they stepped into a Hollywood fashion shoot. For our girls, and even some boys, we have an on-site hair stylist, at no additional charge, who will help us create a variety of styles and looks for your hair. Sitting in the chair and being pampered is one of the highlights of the session for most kids.
Hair and Make up for Portraits
One of the first questions we are asked by girls and parents is.. “Should she be wearing makeup?” Usually the answer is no. We are definitely followers of the “I woke up like this” crew. The majority of images that you have seen on our website or any of our social media accounts showcase teens that do not have on makeup. Instead, we chose to use lighting to our advantage. We can diffuse light to give a flattering and soft look that is eye-catching to the viewer. Makeup is NOT a requirement, nor is it encouraged for perfect images. It is OUR job to make sure you look your best! In the end, it is up to you if you would like to wear it or not! A tiny bit of lip gloss and mascara can go a long way.
Some of our older teens want to have their hair and makeup done before their photo shoot, especially the girls who are taking pre-mitzvah or dance/cheer application images. You are more than welcome to have that done on your own, or you can utilize our makeup artist for an additional charge (hair is always included). If you desire to have professional hair and makeup, (or just makeup), we can make arrangements to have our makeup artist come in for the day. She is a high fashion makeup artist that can create VERY soft and flattering looks for your teen!
But I Have Braces
Please do not let braces deter you from capturing moments you could never uniquely capture again. An 11-year-old is nothing like a 14-year-old. If you wait too long, you will rob yourself of time that you could have documented in a way that was eye catching. The majority of tweens and teens that we photograph are wearing braces. At Ivey Photography, we are skilled in knowing the types of images to create when we capture a tween/teen with braces. We can deliver plenty of images that not only meet a parents expectations, but the kids love.
