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, Spring is coming which means the introduction of fun pastels.
Red, orange, and yellow tend to photograph strange and cause colored shadows. If you love those warmer tons, 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 with a pattern like plaid 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 color.
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. Throw in some blush with your neutrals for a subtle nod to Spring.
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.
2) Keep it simple
Pattern 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 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!
