Like most women, I love clothes & love to shop! But I understand that most of my clients dread putting together their families’ outfits for our session so I am here to help!
I work closely with my clients to choose options that compliment my soft, natural style we are going for. Clothing that will enhance the beauty of the photograph instead of distract. I want my clients to feel beautiful yet comfortable and focus more on each other than what they are wearing. Here are some important things to keep in mind when brainstorming what to wear to your session…
Cream, white, tan, gray, camel, peach, soft pastels & browns
Elements to remember
TEXTURES & LAYERS – There is a simple beauty in mixing textures & adding layers that truly adds depth, detail and diminesion to a photo. I recommend anything with a great texture, lace or some sparkle detail. It can be very understated and can dress up other basic pieces of your outfit while adding a feminine touch. Also by adding a vest, scarf, jacket, group of bangles or a statement necklace, it can make your outfit shine without distracting like bold, neon or dark colors can.
TONES – All wearing the same tone family is gorgeous… but we want to avoid everyone in white button downs. :) You can pick a tone & all wear different shades of the color.
DETAILS – Our eye is naturally drawn to pretty and shiny things so remember that when preparing for your session. Focus on the details… paint your finger nails clear or a soft color & don’t forget your accessories.
A couple other recommendations… no black or dark colors, avoid Sunday best khakis, jeans & starch business shirts for dads and stay away from heavy patterns.
And lastly, I highly recommend mamas getting their hair & makeup done professionally. Most of my clients do and that special treat can make you feel incredible which will undoubtedly shine through in your photographs. I can recommend a local MUA if you’re interested.
