I don’t know how many emails I get asking “What do we wear for our portrait/engagement session?!”, so I thought I’d throw out some helpful hints:
What to avoid:
#1. Large writing (unless you want the writing to be a focal point in your pictures. Example: a “bump” shirt for a maternity shoot)
#2. Big Logos.

#4. Everyone in plain black tops… cuddle up, and you’ll look like one big black blob.
#5. Everyone in plain white tops. See #4.
Looks that work:
#1. Adding a splash of color with a vibrant scarf, bold shoes, or chunky earrings.
#2. Textures, simple patterns, and bright colors all photograph really well.
#3. Coordinating colors instead of matching everyone perfectly.
#5. Wearing something that makes you feel beautiful!
