It’s the one question I get asked most often when people are getting ready for a portrait session: what should we wear?
As the fall season approaches, outdoor photos are extremely popular. So as you prepare for your engagement or family photo session, here are a few suggestions on what to look for in a coordinating wardrobe.
– No big logos of any kind. Stick to timeless prints and colours and avoid distracting patterns.
– Say no to “matchy-matchy”! The days of everyone wearing white shirts and khakis are gone. Look for complimentary colours that play off each other.
– For family sessions, remember to be comfortable! We’ll be playing around with the kids, so wearing your Sunday-Best isn’t always practical. When kids are comfortable in their clothes, they’re happier and easier to photograph!
– For engagement sessions, I like to suggest choosing two outfits: one casual, and one a little dressier. We can shoot both styles during your session to give a little more variety.
Here are some outfit combinations I pulled together for the whole family. These warmer, simple earth tones look great in the fall! Don’t forget the accessories like scarves, necklaces, hats and belts!
