Choosing Clothes for your Portrait Session

What to wear? Whether you are preparing for your family photography session, senior session, or business headshot, clients always struggle with this basic question. Here are a few suggestions to get you started!

Number 1 - Select clothing that is comfortable! Something that you like. Something that you have been told looks good on you.

Number 2 - What color are your eyes? Wear something that brings out the color in your eyes. Your shirt, a scarf, a necklace, a sweater.

Number 3 - Solid colors win the day, but small prints like small checks or narrow stripes will work and may add interest. Bold florals or strong geometric patterns usually are more distracting.

Number 4 - Wear a couple of layers of clothing such as a light sweater, a wrap, or vest or jacket. Add a colorful scarf, tie or belt to add subtle interest.

Number 5 - Iron your clothes if they are wrinkled!

Follow these suggestions to be well on your way to looking fabulous in your portrait session! Here’s to your gorgeous self!
