What to wear

Deciding what to wear is often one of the most stressful parts of a photo session.  Here are a few tips to think about as you prepare for your session.

Avoid being too trendy.  Do you remember those portraits where everyone dressed in white shirts and jeans?  Your goal should be to coordinate, but not all look identical.  Color is good.  Patterns are great.  It’s okay to mix things up a bit.

Be Comfy!  You should be able to sit, stand, lie down, jump, do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around in whatever you are wearing.  If you are not comfortable, it will show in your pictures, especially with kids.  Although the kids’ outfits may be picture-perfect, if his shoes are uncomfortable or her shirt is itchy, your child will not be happy and it will show in the pictures.

Let Your Personality Shine.  If you don’t normally wear dresses and high heels, don’t wear dresses and high heels.  If your two-year-old loves twirling in a petti-skirt, dress her in a petti-skirt.  If your five-year-old is obsessed with super heroes, let him wear his super hero cape for one of the portraits.  You will treasure those images more in the years to come because that is your real, everyday life.

Don’t forget the details!  Accessories make the outfit.  When picking out shoes look for a fun color.   Wear a necklace or scarf that compliments your outfit.

Photograph it.  Take a picture of all of your outfits together before your big photo shoot.  Just lay them all out on the bed and take a picture in natural light.  Make sure the colors look well together.  If you are questioning any of the pieces, feel free to send the picture to us for advice.  We love to work with our clients to help design their portrait sessions!

Lastly, shop early to avoid the stress of doing everything last minute.  If your baby is in the drooling / spitting up phase, put a bib on her before you leave the house.  Just try to have fun with it!
