What to Wear!

*These are not instructions, just tips to take into consideration!*

  • wear solid colors so that we see all of your faces and no one person stands out.
  • choose muted tones that are a bit subdued so that you are the subject, not your clothes, and you don’t stand out from the group. Bright colors project (especially reds, oranges, and yellows), which also makes you look larger.
  • choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light) so that one doesn’t look bigger than the other.  White top, dark pants will make your top look bigger.  White pants, dark top will make your butt look bigger.
  • If you have 3 people or more in your session, choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy – all dark jewel tones.  OR tan, a lighter olive green, and denims – all lighter, softer tones.  So that we see the people first and your pictures looks stunning.
  • avoid white socks and shoes white tends to stick out and it'll be the first thing you notice in your pictures
  • keep jewelry simple and minimalistic too much draws attention from your face
