Tips for Selecting Outfits for Your

Photo Session


A common question among clients is what they should wear to their portrait session. Clothing choices are an integral part of the final prints so for that reason I’m outlining a few things to consider when selecting outfits.

Be true to you

My goal is to capture authentic images of your children and/or your family. Select clothes that reflect your personal style and taste rather than selecting something trendy or outside of your comfort zone.

Coordinate Colors

Coordinating colors tend to photograph better than outfits that are perfectly matched. Consider selecting a palette of 3-4 coordinating colors and select outfits within the palette for each family member. Business portraits usually look great when coordinating basics like a neutral jacket or sweater with a shirt that has a pop of color.

Add Some Layers

Layering vests, jackets, and scarves is an easy and natural way to give depth and texture to your final images. While it’s fun to play with accessories try not to overdo it or they may end up distracting from the subject(s).
