WHAT DO I WEAR?
Though there is really no "correct" answer to this question, one thing is true; What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where final images will be displayed. Your style should be as unique as your family, so we've put together some clothing advice for a creative, comfortable session.
Bright colors look lovely! For couples and families, try choosing outfits with colors that complement each other rather than exact matches.
Turn Heads with Textures
Create textures! Bright woven scarves, faux furs, knits, bold prints, and interesting fabrics always look fabulous on camera.
Add Flare with Accessories
Have fun with the accessories. Heirloom jewelry, scarves, ties, bags, fun shoes, wraps, and hats can add a lot of character and pop tones to a photo. Although lots of accessories might seem a bit excessive in person, they really show up well in front of the lens.
