Choose a hairstyle similar to how your child is normally groomed
For older teens, send hair and makeup supplies with your child for quick touch-ups
Limit over-exposure to the sun for a few days before Picture Day
Choose solid colors or simple clothing patterns
Don’t select off-the-shoulder or spaghetti strapped blouses
Avoid shirts with slogans
Select small accessories that do not detract, such as simple earrings, pins and necklaces
Have your child practice relaxing and smiling in front of your camera
