Are you struggling to decide what to wear for your upcoming photoshoot?
In this post I will be helping you decide how you can pick an outfit that will make your photographs pop and look like they belong in a magazine.
READY for my secrets?
BE ready to coordinate and not match~ this is where a lot of people can get it wrong, they think that everyone wearing the same color will be perfect for photos, this is not the case..
“But what if there is a big group and I want to wear white shirts with jeans?” you might ask
THEN lets think about this.. for a big group of more than 6 people, this can be a good choice, that way noone will stick out if they are wearing the brightest color~ usually for big groups I suggest wearing similie matchy stuff.. BUT dont be afraid to not match either. A big group can totally pull it off if they are coordinating outfits and not matching their outfits. Challenging but it can be done.
When it comes to families the rule of not matching applies to you. You can start by choosing a dress (we can call this the KEY PIECE) for the kids or for mom and then choose colors that match that dress. If it has pinks and blues, choose your next outfit accordingly with this. BUT you cant select another pattern, your choices will have to be pretty simple and plain. When you have different patterns the photos will not look good. Choose colors that you know look good with your skin tone. However there are patterns that look great together. If you are doing a photo shoot with me I always guide you step by step in this process, I have clients who are out shopping and text me pictures to see what I think.
Have a great selection of great colors!~
Accessories look great in pictures, big chunky necklaces, bracelets, hats, flowers in your hair. However be sure not to overdo it so the accessories dont over power the photos. Layering also works great because it can help with making the photos look different and give you different looks.
When taking newborn photos make sure not to over do the accessories, or put a huge flower on their head~ we want to be able to capture them as they really are and not have the flower be the center of attention.
ONE KEY item I love when taking photos is texture~ clothes with texture add dimension to photographs, especially in babies and children. ITs amazing what a sweater with texture will do to a photograph, it will have a timeless feel.
Avoid the color red, unless its Christmas photos~ Red tends to add a color cast and doesnt photograph really well.
