Putting outfits together

Coordinate but don’t match! The days of putting everyone in white shirts and khakis are long gone! Pick 1-2 base neutral colors, such as tan, browns, and greys, to start with then add a pop of color to use as well. Neon, bright shades are a no-no. Patterns can be distracting and take away from the people in the pictures so if you pick a pattern, go subtle and maybe choose a pattern for only one person in the group. Keep it classic. When you look back at your pictures 20+ years from now, you’ll be glad you did not go too trendy! Comfort is a must as well! If you pick something way out of your norm, you might not feel like yourself. Ladies, watch for your undergarments too! If you can see the lines, the camera will as well. Some recent styles of dresses make it hard to wear a bra underneath. If you wouldn’t normally wear that, maybe consider a beautiful lace bra or tank to help you feel more confident. Some of my favorite brands to coordinate with are Old Navy, Target and H&M.

Coordinate with your location

During spring and summer, outdoor settings have lots of greens and yellows so it’s best to stay away from picking those shades to wear. Same thing goes for fall and winter with browns and oranges. When in doubt, ask me when booking your session!
