what to wear
Not sure what to wear for your pictures? Think simple! Clothing choices are very important to getting those portraits you love. Personally, I often take a second look at a portrait I love and am struck by the vibrant colors worn by the subjects!
If you have a family session scheduled, try starting with your most difficult to dress family member and build outfits that coordinate. For example, if your daughter has a favorite green, pink and yellow skirt, let her wear it! Then, pick one other person to wear green, another to wear yellow and then complement an outfit with a pink scarf or something similar for you!
Don’t be afraid of patterns and bold colors; especially with kids! Layers add wonderful dimension to a photo! I’m always impressed when families layer really well; they look so gorgeous! However, it is still best to avoid large logos, prints and neon colors. Jeans are always a favorite with any color, and newborns and babies are best photographed in nothing or swaddles (which I will provide). I have quite a few props that I’d love to share including blankets, wraps and hats.
*A little note about white-it’s fine to wear, but it’s not the best color to photograph when everyone is wearing it!*
