So you've scheduled your portrait session and now you might be concerned about how you're going to prepare for it. No need to worry! In this post, we will help ease your mind about one of the biggest preparation factors: what to wear to a photoshoot.
Style with Confidence
Whether you are preparing for a family session, couples portraits or even just child portraits, the most important thing when figuring out what to wear for a photoshoot, is that everyone in front of the camera feels comfortable and confident in the clothes they are wearing. What you wear should reflect your personality and individual style. You need to feel great in your clothes so that your confidence can shine and we can photograph you as naturally as possible. If you’re overly concerned about an article of clothing you’re going to be distracted from taking the best photos you can. Your images should bring back positive memories, not memories of how often you kept adjusting your clothes. As always, we strive to capture each client in a happy and relaxed state and that's why it's crucial that the clothes you bring to your portrait session make you feel that way.
Additionally, it is recommended that you wear neutral colors so that your photos are timeless and more versatile. Gray and cream colors are almost always better than black and white. We encourage that you keep the heavy patterns and big logos at home in order to keep the attention on the real star - YOU! If you are booked for a family session or are being photographed with multiple people, we definitely recommend you coordinate with each other. This does NOT mean exact matching, uniform type of coordination. This means wearing colors that compliment each other and don't direct people's attention to one individual. This might take some planning and communication, but it is well WORTH IT!
