How to Prepare for Your Photography Session
1. Schedule your session. Due to capacity and safety concerns, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 9 people to ensure safe social distancing. Learn more about the safety protocols we have implemented at all JCPenney Portrait studio locations.
2. Pick your outfits. Keep your clothing simple and consistent. Coordinate outfits from head to toe to prepare for full length poses. Once you arrive at your session, your photographer will recommend a background that compliments your look. Read more: Ideas and Tips on How to Dress for Family Photos.
3. Personalize with props. As part of our enhanced cleaning and safety protocols, all studio locations are discontinuing the use of soft, porous studio props. Customers are required to bring their own baby wrap or blanket to photograph newborns or non-sitters. We encourage our customers to customize their sessions and bring personal props from home. Maybe you have a cherished family heirloom passed down for generations, a special hand-knit baby blanket, or a favorite accessory. Using personal props is a great way to customize your session, giving your photo memories a personal touch. Click here to learn more about our new prop protocols.
