What to Wear  – 3 Easy Steps

Let’s admit it  – There are a bijillion outfits, color combinations, accessories and patterns to choose from when it comes your photos. Choosing the right outfit should reflect you and your loved one’s personality. By following the three easy steps bellow, you are guaranteed to choose the perfect outfit for your photo session – It’ll be super easy!

The most important thing you can do is dress in clothes that make you feel great, yet move around at ease. You will want to keep in mind that while you choose an outfit you love, you want to make sure you are comfortable as well.

Step 1: Start With Color

Color will be an important aspect to the overall turnout of your photos. Start with a foundation color then add a few accent colors. Use as many tones, textures and patterns as you need to add variety, but keep consistency at the same time. All outfits should coordinate, but don’t have to match at all! Think about about where the photos will be after your shoot  – A canvas on the wall? An album on the coffee table? Maybe both. When choosing colors, think about where you’re using the photographs and what you want them to say about you. I also suggest avoid wearing any shirts with letters and writing, to draw the attention towards you as a family or couple.

Step 2: Layer and Accessories

Accessories add an extra pop to your images! Add scarves, jewelry, watches, belts, headbands, earrings, fun shoes, and jackets or blazers for a style I love. Not only does this make for awesome pictures by adding texture, but it allows you to bring your personality and style to the scene.
