What do we wear??!

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.

#3.  Extremely busy graphics (i.e. Ed Hardy Tee’s- sorry Ed.)

#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.

#4.  Layers!

#5.  Wearing something that makes you feel beautiful!

Here are a couple examples to get the wheels turning…
