What to Wear
Without fail one of the questions I always get before a session is, “What should I wear?”
I truly believe that one the most important things to consider next to who your photographer is, and where your portraits are being done at, is what to wear. Your clothing can make an okay portrait into an amazing one. Without even realizing it you’ll be drawn to pictures with textures, layers, certain colors, etc. Your textures can come from the material you wear- nubby knits, wool sweaters, ….. Layers are easy to add and then take away creating many different looks for your session- think scarves, shrugs, an undershirt with a polo. When it comes to color the biggest tip I can give out is wear what looks good on you. I’d never, ever wear white in a picture since it looks retched on me. =)
These what to wear posts are to help give you some ideas. Matching is not what we’re shooting for. Coordinating is our goal! Each week I’ll give you some ideas to prepare for your sessions.
