what to wear

{what to wear}



General tips:


1. Wear what you feel good in! It will be hard to relax and be yourself if you aren't comfortable in what you've chosen to wear. If you feel great in a dress, wear a dress! If you love yourself in a good pair of skinny jeans, do that!


2. Details. It is often the little "extras" that complete a great outfit. Jewelry, scarves, hair pieces, etc can really add a lot to an otherwise boring outfit. Layer, layer, layer! This will give your photos more depth. Layer your dress with a belt and cute necklace. Fall or winter weather? Pull out the scarves, cardigans, blazers, or hats.


3. Coordinate. This is not to be confused with "match." Gone are the days when everyone wearing a polo shirt and khakis is considered a good idea. Coordinate colors - usually picking 2 or 3 base colors and maybe one accent color is a good idea. This also works great with neutrals (I love neutrals!!).


4. Please avoid neon colors. They can cause the color to reflect onto your face or someone else's face and is not very flattering.

 

5. Think about what "look" you want for your photos. If you want your photos to have the "light and airy" look, wear light colors like pastels. If you are going for a more dramatic, dark look - wear dark colors. 


6. To get started, pick one outfit you really like. From there you can build your family's outfits.


7. Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns. Stripes and floral? Plaid and tweed? Sure! Just put it together and see how you feel in it. It is important to express yourself in your photos - do what feels great to you!


8. Feedback is a great idea. Go shopping with your friends if you want. Also, don't be afraid to send me pictures and ask what I think. I am not a fashion expert, but I have an idea of what looks good in photos :).

9. What will you still like in a few years? You will want to be able to look back at your pictures and still love them!

For kids:


1. Dress them in what fits them best. As moms we often like to buy clothes that our kids will "grow into." Avoid the baggy, looser fitting clothes that still need more growing (no matter how much you like it!) and opt for the outfit that fits your child now.


2. Layering is important for the kids too. Leggings under skirts, vests, bows, hats, bow-ties, glasses, suspenders, cardigans, etc. Again, make sure they fit - especially the outmost layer needs to fit snug.


3. Keep the hairpieces simple. Unless your girl has loads of hair, a big hairpiece will only distract from her face. Keep it simple, dainty, and classy.


4. Make sure they are comfortable. Whining kids might make for some fun(ny) pictures, but not the ones you want to put on the wall.


5. Not feeling like going for a trendy outfit? That's fine! Simple, elegant, timeless outfits will never go out of style. A lacy white dress and bow? Always adorable. Simple diaper cover? Precious!


Newborn shoots:


1. Simplicity. Keep it simple - we don't want to distract from that sweet baby! Many clients choose black, white, cream, or gray tones. If you want to have more color, some is ok (neutrals and pastels look best - please avoid neon colors!), but please avoid any busy patterns.  Avoid clothing with obvious logos or writing. Simple knit tops look great in photos. Wrinkles WILL show up in photos - so please either iron or steam them out if needed.


2. Dainty, small bows are best. We don't want to distract from the perfect little nose, mouth, and eyes of your new baby!
