Photo Day Tips & Tricks from Artona!

  • Solid colours are best.
  • Long sleeve dresses and shirts are recommended for close-ups because they focus attention on the face.
  • Coordinate your attire from head to toe.
  • Darker clothing tends to minimize body size.
  • A v-neck or scoop-neck is best if your neck is short and your face is full. A high neck garment is more flattering if your neck is longer and your face is slender.
  • If you have a school uniform then that is all you need.
  • Please do not leave valuables unattended, Artona is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
