What to Wear
I always have clients ask me what to wear to the session. I'm so thrilled to announce that I have partnered with a styling guide that is available to my all clients for FREE. This allows you to plug in your ages, gender, sizes, color palettes and style. It gives you several selections of affordable clothing and accessories from several different designers (think Old Navy, Target, Asos, Nordstrom, etc.) and allows you to order directly from their website. This service is completely complimentary to my clients to help make the process of picking out your clothes a breeze. Please contact me for your personal access code in order to use the client stylist guide.
If you choose to style yourselves, I would stay away from busy designs, large logos and text, or conflicting patterns. Solids, plaids and different textures and layers always photograph nicely. For warmer seasons, I love brighter colors and whites (no neon) and flowing dresses. For cooler months, I love sweaters, cardigans, and lots of layers in deep, rich colors. I would aim for colors that compliment one another without being too matchy. You could also look for a plaid color palette and use those colors (it isn't necessary to incorporate plaid in the actual wardrobe choices, but you could if you wanted to) to find complementing tones. Really think about how you want your photos to look when picking out your wardrobe. Side note- if you plan on enlarging a photo to hang in your home, think about your room decor while making selections.
