Outfits are EVERYTHING.
• Certain colors definitely photograph better than others. With my style of editing, earthy tones look amazing!
• You don’t want to get too matchy matchy, but picking a color scheme of around 4 colors and playing off of that will make it all come together.
• Steer clear of fluorescents. Fluorescent colors tend to color cast on faces, necks and hair. They’re harsh sometimes. • Black DOES photograph well. • Avoid graphic tees and logos that stand out. • Ladies, don’t hesitate to wear a gorgeous dress for your session. Get dressed up even if it’s something you wouldn’t normally wear. • Dress your tiny humans in clothes that fit perfectly, not with room to grow. Even if your child may only wear the outfit for a few months, it’ll look much better than putting them in something that they still need to grow into. Go a size smaller in jackets, cardigans or blazers. A too-big jean jacket, blazer, sweat shirt, sweater or hoodie will not compliment shape. • Shoes are a very important part of wardrobe. If you have the cutest little pants and button shirt for your son to wear for pictures, but slap his favorite pair of Disney sneakers on him, it throws off the vibe. Stay away from character shoes, thongs, crocs. • Remember, coordinating your childrens’ outfits is key. Not matching. • Layering is always good! • Guys, I know sometimes you are adamant about wearing your baseball hats, but they really take away from the photos and casts weird shadows over your eyes. Just take them off for the session • To get the flow going with wardrobe for your family, start with one outfit that you really like. From there, build from it for everyone else.
