What do you have to lose?
You've got questions, We've got answers..
Suits are great. Gray and Navy Blue come out exquisitely. With the suit, one that doesn't bunch up too much when buttoned or when sitting is best, and try and match your shirt and tie to it.
Keep patterns on shirts and suits to a minimum, especially small ones like tiny squares or herringbone. The smaller the pattern, the more it creates a blurring, moire effect, which can be off-putting to the eye. Patterned lines are fine if they are further apart.
Keep bold colors to a minimum for both suit and shirt. They really take over the picture and can also reflect poorly onto the subject. Tie color should fall in between shirt and suit color. So if the suit is dark gray and the shirt is light blue, the tie color should fall in between. Ties shouldn't be shiny or have a sheen to them.
If you're wearing a button-down shirt without a tie, it's best NOT to wear a white shirt. Without the tie, white shirts lose detail very easily in the picture. Also, if you're not wearing a jacket, keep the shirt color darker or wear another layer like a v-neck sweater. If you choose to just wear the shirt, unbutton it a bit so there's some contrast.
Choose a classic look in a professional suit or business-oriented outfit. In other words, stay away from anything that can make the photo look older than it is. Just like the men with suits, don't choose bold or distracting colors or patterns.
If you must wear white, make sure it's offset by another layer on top of it like a cardigan or jacket. V-necks look best on women as they accentuate the neck line.
Bare arms should be avoided if possible in a formal setting, but are okay so long as there's a layering option that can be put on top just in case, such as a shawl.
Small jewelry is fine. If you're wearing a good deal of it, you may be asked to remove some since it can take over the picture and create glare. Earrings are great, but shouldn't be too low below the ear.

Yes, we have a wonderful hair and makeup stylist that is available to you.
For Company/Group Sessions, the stylist is available by the day or 1/2 day.
For an Executive Session, each participant is $225.
There's so much variety outdoors that I typically suggest venturing out for some photos. The midday can be tough if it's sunny outside though- so earlier in the morning, or later in the evening will typically yield better photos.
This doesn't mean you can't get great photos in the middle of the day, it's just easier when the sun isn't smack in the middle of the sky. If it's cloudy out, you can get a great photo pretty much anywhere.
