Be creative. LOTS of layering, you do not need to match. Pick a few colors that look cute together and have fun. I know this may sound weird....... just trust me ;) The more colors you layer the cuter the picture will be.  I want them to show your  daughter's individual personality.

Colors you may wear:
(SOLID) Red, Fuchsia, Royal Blue, Yellow, Kelly Green, Orange, Purple, Black, White, Turquoise, you can also wear anything Jean.
No light colors, they need to be bold colors!

Ideas of what you may wear:
Scarfs, ear rings, bracelets, belts, bandannas, hats, leg warmers, vests, skirts, funky shoes, converse, high heels, boots, tutus, cute fingerless gloves, flowers, necklaces, jackets (jean), leggings, skirts, jeans, capris, shrugs, crazy socks (with colors listed above)

Hair, and makeup:
Light make up, hair however you want.

Pictures will be taken in the studio. Cost will be $20, this includes 1 8x10 of team photo shopped.
Money due at pictures. (Write checks to Maximum Dance)
Candace (the photographer) will have pricing out for me to pass out in class next week for individuals, if you are interested.
You can check out her website
I will talk more about pictures on Sat. at Competition.
They are going to be sooo cute!

Thanks TaRaLeE:)
