What to Wear

Wondering what to wear to your session?  I’m here to help!  Timeless images need classic wardrobe choices, so I suggest no graphic images or competing patterns. If someone wants to wear a pattern, cool, just have only them wear a pattern and put everyone else in solid colors.   Color and texture are the way to go.  The color chart below will help you to decide the best pieces from your closet.

Colors on opposites sides of the color wheel are complementary: blue and orange, red and green, purple and yellow.  You can also shift a bit to either side of the true opposite and it will still work: purple with gold for example.  Try not to vary too much from the complementary colors though to maintain that timeless look you want.

Another way to match is with cool versus warm looks.  The wheel below will show you which are the warm and which are the cool colors.  Have the family all dress is shades of blue and green for a fantastic beach scene or don shades of red for a playful playground shoot.  The possibilities are endless!

Lastly, you can choose to completely match each other.  You could have everyone wear white shirts and blue jeans for a casual, approachable look.  I hope these tips help you find just the right look for your next photo shoot with me!  Please contact me with any questions.  I am happy to help!
