What to Wear

The most frequently asked questions from my clients is “What should we wear?”  And it’s no wonder!  Your photos are an investment that you have most likely spent some time and money on, and besides adorning the walls of your home and probably your Christmas cards, they will be passed down for generations to come.  It is understandable that you want to look your best!  I have complied a few tips here that I am hoping will help you feel less overwhelmed when it comes time to pick out your wardrobe for your next photo session.  Do you have a certain color that you really love to wear? Wear it!  Do you love dresses?  Wear one!  Find something that makes you feel beautiful!  If you are comfortable in what you are wearing, it will transfer to your photos.  Being comfortable and confident in what we’re wearing can make a huge difference in how we feel and how relaxed we are in front of the camera.  Still stuck?  Here are a few recommended pieces to get you started.

  • For Mom:  Dresses are the most flattering, and photograph beautifully.  Dresses with movement add an extra touch of grace and elegance to your photos!
  • For Dad:  Slacks and button up shirts or Polos look sharp, masculine and tailored in photos.
  • For Kids:  Same as mom and dad!  Don’t forget to accessorize.  Little touches like hair accessorizes, bow ties and suspenders can add the perfect stylistic touch to your photos.
