What should I wear?
Clothing is a very important part of your session. I want your personal style and taste to be reflected in your clothing choices while making sure your clothing photographs well. Color, textures, and layer can add wonderful depth, dimension and beauty to your session. Some good choices of clothing include (but are definitely not limited to) jean jackets, flowing dresses and skirts, hats, scarves, crocheted dresses, lace, floppy hats, and layered shirts. Accessories also add interesting detail to shoots such as long necklaces, cool shoes, bows, and cute hats. Patterns such as plaid, polka dots, and flowers can be worn. However brand name logos, busy and/or bright patterns, and graphics can be distracting and take away from your photographs.
Color coordinating is an excellent idea. I wrote a blog article about color coordination here which can be quite helpful with finding complimentary colors when choosing outfits. White, blacks, greys, and browns are beautiful neutral colors that can be spiced up when other colors are added into the mix. You don't want to go overboard with the amount of colors. A good rule of thumb would be to choose 2-3 complimentary colors to go with a neutral. And in the end, I want your photographs to turn out beautifully and showcase who you are. Feel free to discuss your outfit choices with me, and I will help lead you in the right direction for your photography session.
