"What do I wear for my Shoot?"
This is the most asked question I get when someone books a session. I will be posting in the next few days tips and tricks to look your best. I will be showing examples of good wardrobe and not so good wardrobe choices. So let's begin.
1) COORDINATE, DON’T MATCH
Back in the days of white shirts and blue jeans is gone. It was great back then, everyone did it but that time has past. Instead choose a color scheme- mix and match colors so everyone flows and coordinates.
This is an example of what NOT to do. This also touches on background and thinking about wear you are being photographed. ( I will be touching on that in another post)
2) START WITH ONE PIECE AND BUILD
When I am looking for a color to start with and I can't figure it out, I look for the one piece I know I want in my photos. A special dress, one of the kids shirts, something that I just love. I will then build from that. So if I pick a dress for my daughter I will than pull colors from it and create my color scheme from there. If it is a solid color I pick then I will look for other coordinating colors to put not eh rest of the family or even different shades of the same color. NEVER everyone in that color though.
This is a good example of how to coordinate. Mom is wearing a bright color that is in the son's shirt and from there the daughter has a color from the sons shirt as well. Dad is a wearing a coordinating blue but not matching his daughter.
So these are the first 2 suggestions I have for this post. Check back tomorrow for more tips.
