What to wear
The style of your clothing, the colours and the textures can impact the overall feel and vibe of your photo session!
If investing in family or childhood photos, it is very important to spend a little additional time on coordinating outfits to ensure your photos are timeless and polished!
I have put together some style tips that I hope will be helpful to you as you start to think about styling your child and/or family for your next photo session.
As always, I am available via email, text or phone should you have any questions about outfit or overall styling of your session, feel free to even send a photos if you like and I’d be more than glad to give you some opinion/ideas!!
Styling Tips & Ideas!
Make sure you are comfortable in the clothing that you choose as we will be moving around a lot and cuddling with your loved ones, I generally suggest that mom picks something she loves first and then coordinate everyone else around her.I always want mom to feel beautiful!
I offer a studio wardrobe full of beautiful gowns ready to use:)
Mix and match fun colours and patterns, don’t feel like everyone has to look the same or be matchy-matchy. I personally love solid colours and clothing with textures!
Flower crowns, necklaces, scarves, hats, jewellery & suspenders make great natural props. Sweeping dresses and clothing with movement can play up the mood and are always beautiful and fun!
!Graphics or large logos on clothing tend to date photos and distract.
!Neon colours throw crazy color cast on skin and typically do not photograph well.
Remember that shoes will show and can make images feel unpolished.
I love bare feet in the summer for kiddos also!
Earth tones and rich colours tend to lend themselves well. Boys going shirtless for outdoor summer sessions can help play up a carefree playful mood.
Get kiddos excited by letting them help choose a special accessory to wear. If they have something near and dear to them let them bring it along to help tell a story!
