Have you ever looked at your past family photographs and wondered, “What was I thinking,” or felt you put on a few pounds? Here at the Portrait Gallery, we will help you select a wardrobe that will not only keep your images from looking dated, but will also help to shed a few extra pounds. When you see your images, we want you to love the way you look and feel about yourself wearing the right clothing and makeup, with the latest trends.

When looking at your portrait, the first thing you should be drawn to is the person's eyes and smile. However, clothing must be considered when creating a timeless image. This year’s fashion is all about bold colors and frills. Ruffles and romantic looking dresses will be fashionable and bell sleeve blouses give off a romantic look. If you want to go for a timeless and sexy look, consider a black sweetheart lace dress, wearing the sleeves barely off the shoulder. Body defining ankle grazing pants and wide leg cropped pants pair well with heels and will be a statement trend this year.

Some of Karen's favorite fashion trends are chiffon, lace and pearls. Karen loves the flow of chiffon and it tends to hide any body bulge. Lace and pearls really make an image stand out and remain timeless.
