PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION GUIDE: WARDROBE & STYLING TIPS

PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION GUIDE: WARDROBE & STYLING TIPS

Wardrobe and styling are very important for photo shoots. We recommend you select wardrobes that showcase your personality. The more effort you put into styling, the better your photos will turn out.

CLOTHING
In general, it’s better to stick to solid colors and keep stripes and patterns to a minimum, as they tend to distract and take attention away from your face. Avoid large or baggy clothing, as they tend to make the body seem wider. Also, stay away from shorts as they tend to make legs appear shorter. Finally, consider choosing the types of clothing that will not only match the locale of your photo shoot, but will also look best on wall portraits and complement your home decor.

COLORS
We don’t advise you to wear matching outfits. We do advise coordinating outfits that have some common element or color (ie. man wears a suit and the color of his tie complements the color of his wife’s dress). Keep in mind darker colors give texture to photographs and lighter colors bring energy and fun.

ACCESSORIES
We advise you to keep accessories to a minimum, as they tend to distract from the main subject, YOU! However, a cool hat, nice scarf or unique hair clip or jewelry can add personality. The question to keep in mind is, do you really want all your photos to feature “that” accessory? In the case of hats for example, will taking them off in the middle of the photo shoot cause you to have “hat hair?” If you’re gonna have hat hair, you will have no choice but to wear your hat the whole time. So, consider bringing your hat to the photo shoot, but not wearing it right away.

FOOTWEAR
We advise you to wear fashionable shoes or boots in most cases; sandals or bare feet for casual themes. Avoid running shoes, white socks and heavy footwear.

PROPS
Props are great because they make photos more unique and personal. They are also great because they showcase your personality. Some examples of props are musical instruments or sports equipment. When selecting props, choose things that are meaningful to you.

NUMBER OF OUTFITS
We advise you to bring at least 2 different outfits to the shoot so we can capture different looks.
