You scheduled your session...Now what do you wear???
Most important is to be comfortable!
Families and Children
-for groups choose, 1-3 colors. AVOID all white or all black. Choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light). AVOID clothing with logos and busy
patterns that will distract. This will make you stand out from the rest of the group or family. And choose color!
-accessories, such as headbands, flowers in hair, scarves, jewelry, jackets & hats can really add to your look. Wear cowboy boots or fun, flirty dresses, tutus for girls
-DO wear 3/4 length sleeves or longer for the ladies. short sleeves or sleeveless tend to bring attention to you and make you look bigger.
-Make sure your pants fit so we don't see rolls etc.. Denim or khaki are popular bottom choices
-AVOID matching outfits, but try to find outfits that compliment each other
-GUYS wear dress up shirts, button down, or polo shirts. Remember to shave!
-HAIR! Be prepared for wind! Bring brush! Hair ties, and maybe even bobby pins for that flyaway piece! ;) And don't be afraid to use hair spray!
-props – if you have fun props, please feel free to bring them
-basic tank top
-flirty sun dress
-white button down blouse
-bathing suit top and fun skirt (if the
weather is warm)
-just remember, simple goes a long way
-special items you would like to be photographed with
(I do include some)
-nude is best! ;)
-fun hats if you have them
-for girls, your favorite bows.<3 ( I do have some)
-a simple onesy if you have a favorite
IF PARENTS INVOLVED
-For mom, a simple black or white tank, short-sleeved shirt or tube top is perfect.
Simple is best, avoid patterns.
-For dad, a black or white t-shirt. For those
dads that are comfortable bearing their chest please do because these can make for some of the most precious images with father and child.
-make a theme and go with it!
-bring two sets of clothing some casual and something dressy
-coordinate with your wedding! Most couples take this time to use these images as their "save the dates"
-Wear awesome colors
-Don't go crazy with patterns
-You can match (coordinate) but don't go crazy trying to find the same shades. Find the same color, but in different shade!
-If one of you really stands out tone it down a bit on the other person by wearing a more neutral color!
-Don't over think it! Simple can be best.
-Don't forget to accessorize! If you want to....
