Photo Shoot WARDROBE TIPS: I particularly love how light colors look in photos with a lighter background like blues, soft pastels and light jewel tones! Tone down bright colors. Bright colors attract attention away from the face and may be reflective. Avoid wearing red, bright pink, bright green etc. When choosing lighter colors, stick to pastels, but avoid pink tones. Pale yellow and pale blue work well, especially with jeans or khaki pants. These colours work great in nature! White can look beautifully simple and fresh. White shirts and/or blouses, and especially dresses are always a great choice! They are especially great for beach photos where the background is light!

Avoid Small prints, patterns, checks, and logos. No matter how small the print or the pattern, it will become a distraction. In the case of digital portraits, in particular, small patterns in clothing (even a small herring-bone or checkered pattern) can cause terrible distortions to appear in the portrait that are not originally there. Avoid short sleeve clothing and short pants.

For casual portraits it is equally important to wear long pants/ dresses instead of shorts. When arms and legs are exposed to the camera there will be more flesh in the photograph in those areas than on the face, itsel£ This is a major distraction. So if you are wearing a cute summer dress, pair it with a light cardigan to cover your arms.

Dressing in layers is always going to have a higher-end look!

Don’t over accessorize! Overbearing or heavily noticeable accessories can be a major distraction. Simple and minimal works best.

I’ll be sharing more Family photo shoot tips soon! Hope these tips were helpful! I hope to see you at your next photoshoot!
