I get a lot of questions from my clients on "what to wear" to their shoots! This is the season when families are taking the time to take pictures for their Christmas cards, and updating the family photo on the mantle.
I thought I'd so a series of posts concerning "what to wear" to your shoot, giving some tips & ideas for making you feel comfortable during your next family shoot. Gone are the days of matchy-matchy families, you know what I'm talking about khaki pants and white tops. Save that for Olan Mills. If you show up like that to your shoot I may or may not take your pictures. ;)
Here's a couple tips for picking out what to wear to your next shoot:
1. Make sure it's something you're comfortable in. If you're not, I can tell and it will come out in your photographs.
2. Layer, layer, layer! This adds depth to your photos and gives you the option of adding or taking away pieces to get different looks.
3. Accessorize! You can never go wrong with jewelry, hats, scarves, etc.
4. Pick colors that are similar to those in your home. Not sure what color palette to go with? Pick colors that you already have in your home decor for example if you decorate with a lot of reds and creams go that route. This way when you hang your pictures on the wall they will already go with your decor and not look crazy out of place in your home.
Here's a little style board I put together. All the items on the board are currently at Old Navy, they are super affordable and available at any store. There's a look for Mom, Dad, Sister & Brother.
Happy Shopping and stay tuned for the next season when I unveil my style board for Spring Photos!
