What to wear…..
April 3, 2014
Your outfit(s) is another really important aspect to your session. If you are booking a session with young children, outfit changes can be difficult. Consider bringing different hats, jackets, or accessories to mix up your child’s look without taking a ton of time or making them too upset.
If you’re booking a family session with older children, outfit changes are optional & totally up to you. If you’re booking an engagement or senior portrait session, outfit changes are encouraged!
Consider outfits that match your unique personality for senior portraits & for engagements think about colors that coordinate with your wedding day (please feel free to bring props that we can incorporate into the photo shoot… the more different looks the better for these sessions! And just to be safe, here is my list of biggest wardrobe mistakes I see:
1. Too much matching is not a good thing: If you are looking for a classic, timeless look, I can understand coordinating outfits! However, instead of getting the entire extended family in white shirts with bluejeans, consider having half the family wear that, and let the others play around with the theme a bit. Think white cotton dresses or toddlers in jean overalls or throw some denim jackets in the mix. Favorite family photos tend to be ones with an overall color theme (pick 3 colors) and everyone does their own thing with it!
2. Skirts too short & shoes too high: Ladies! You will be sitting down in some shots so please, if you’re wearing a dress or skirt, make sure you can be seated comfortably in it! Also, we will walk around our location A LOT. Bring comfortable shoes as well.
3· Stains, big logos, & other distracting subjects: If you’re bringing a baby or a toddler to your session, consider changing them right before we start, as opposed to feeding them breakfast in the car on the way. Photoshop is fantastic, but it’s never fun (or easy!) to retouch stains out of every image!
4· Outfits not matching the location:Heading to the beach for your session? Leave the stilettos at home & go barefoot! Really consider your location when selecting your outfit. Going for a rustic location? Think a cute sweater paired with jeans, boots, and a pop of color in the form of a necklace or scarf. Don’t be afraid to ask me for suggestions!
