WHAT TO WEAR
Photo SESSION WARDROBE
I love neutral colors! The reason being, they are classic! They don’t “age” or go out of style, and they are safe. Small pops of colors will look great during these sessions. The weather is cooler, winter is coming which means the introduction of holiday fun!
With fall and holiday coming, everyone tends to gravitate towards traditional colors such as red, orange, and yellow. The downside of these is that they tend to photograph strange and reflect causing everyone and everything to look even more red, orange, or discolored.
If you love those warmer tones, use one of those colors as a pop with a scarf, jewelry, or a layer that can also be removed. The other option is incorporating it subtly in a pattern like plaid or floral to help break it up. Another tip, if you choose a colored pant, then go with a neutral top, and vice versa. You don’t want kiddos wearing all the same color head to toe!
Colors to avoid: a lot of solid red, orange, yellow, or bright green
Colors to try: muted darker blue, brown, gold, dark gray, hunter green, cream, or burgundy. Jewel tones are a great way to add in color during the fall and winter! You can even throw in some blush or gold with your neutrals for a subtle but classic pop of color.
My top three biggest tips:
1) Don't go out buying a whole new wardrobe!
You want to be true to your style, your comfort level, and your budget. This should be a fun stress free experience. Most of the time mom or dad can pick their favorite pieces they feel comfortable in. From there, it's easy to blend the kids in.
2) Be comfortable and true to you:
Make sure the outfit you choose is something you love and feel completely comfortable wearing. Something that’s comfortable in the fit as well as comfortable with the look and style. Try to avoid anything too tight or too loose. Also, make sure everyone is dressed appropriately for the weather!
2) Keep it simple
Pattern and texture mixing is ok when done right! It's a fun way to add personality (see the above picture). However, you want try to avoid major bold patterns, tiny stripes, or small checkered patterns. Those tend to confuse the camera and look distorted.
Let me know if you have any questions! I am always willing to walk you through your options. We can even lay out all of your outfits to preview how it will look!
