Styling Your Session
So many people struggle with what to wear on a daily basis so it is even more difficult to decide on what to wear for a session! Below are some general guidelines to follow. It seems like a lot but can make or break a session!
Wear solid clothing. Patterns take away from the focus of the image: you! It's best to not wear any clothing that has stripes, polka dots, flowers, etc.
Choose muted tones that are a bit subdued. Choose similar tones for your top + bottoms (both dark or both light).
Choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait - ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette.
Choose a top with sleeves at least to the elbow. Choose long pants for men/ladies or a skirt/dress below the knee for ladies.
Do your hair the way you'd normally do it while wearing these clothes. If getting a haircut or new hairdo, make your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your session.
Keep jewelry minimal + simple.
