What to wear- Part 3
So we have gone over the location, your home decor and not to be matchy. What could be remaining?? Well, accessories of course! We don't always think about what else we can wear with the cute clothes we picked out. Shoes are a big thing even though you may not always see them. If you have on a nice pair of pants with an old pair of gym shoes it won't look as nice and put together as it could. Adding a scarf to an outfit could bring another color to your photo.You don't want to have too many accessories though. If you look at yourself and all you see is your head barley sticking out of a scarf, then maybe it isn't the right thing to add to your wardrobe. You want them to enhance not distract. Adding hats to little boys is the cutest thing (in my opinion) as well as adding chucnky necklaces for little girls. Coats are an accessory that is also over looked. If you are having winter shots done, you get cold. You should have a nice jacket/coat that isn't torn,dirty or too puffy for you. Adding gloves to a shot is also nice. In the summer having a headband with flowers or crystals can help make an image. One last note about the shoes, I know kids shoes can get expensive, but don't have them in thier play shoes that have holes, mud and whatever else happens to those shoes. Dirty shoes can really break an image.
Also ladies we need to think about the make-up. You don't want to go the tanning salon for the first time or use a self tanner right before a shoot. I love to capture the REAL you, not a altered you that you can't recognize. Make-up needs to be a little more noticeable than your everyday look to show up on camera. Please don't put more on than you are comfortable though. If you never wear purple eye shadow and you think "why not wear it for this shoot", try it out for a few days before. Make sure the look is what you want. Take a selfie and see if you like what you see. Make-up should be an enhancement of you.
My main tip in finding what to wear for a shoot, be you, be comfortable and love your colors you are in. I have a Pinterest board that can also help you if you are color challenged. I hope this has helped and I can't wait to see what fabulous outfits you choose for your next photo shoot.
