What to Wear

What you choose to wear is a very important part of your session. The right outfit can make the difference between good photos and amazing photos.  There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your wardrobe.

DO:  Wear coordinating outfits.  You want the clothes to work together as if they are all from the same collection at your favorite store.  For instance, if you have a cute dress for your little girl that has blue, brown, cream and orange accents, put Mom in a blue dress with a cute orange necklace, your son in a cream polo with jeans, and Dad in a brown polo with khakis.  If everyone in the family coordinates, then every combination of people (the entire family, pairings, and individual shots) will photograph well.

Please avoid having everyone wearing the same outfit.  Just try to choose colors that pair well together.  Some examples are earth tones (tans, browns, blues, sage, olive, burnt orange, mustard yellow, etc.) and jewel tones (amethyst purple, emerald green, sapphire blue, ruby red).  Sometimes its fun to use an accent color (everyone in black, white, and grey with red as your accent).  You can incorporate white into every combination.  Denim jeans always work.  Please avoid screen printed shirts, for some reason they will always look dated.

Remember that accessories and jewelry are important.  Accessories on children, such as hats and layers, add more options and interest to photographs.  I love accessories!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about clothing ahead of time if you aren’t sure.  I would love to help!
