What to Wear for a Portrait Session

One of the questions I receive most from my clients is what to wear for their photo session.

When deciding what your family will wear for your portrait session planning ahead is key!

Color coordinating is always a great idea, but keep in mind you don’t want to be “matchy, matchy”. Rather than everyone wearing all white t-shirts with black jeans or all one color, choose colors that complement each other.

If you’re taking a seasonal portrait then definitely dress according to that season. This will create a cohesive portrait. You’ll also want to ensure you’re dressed comfortably for the season. If you’re uncomfortable it will show in your portraits so be sure to wear what’s comfortable and makes you feel confident.

Accessories are your friend. Perhaps layer a scarf, wear nice belt, necklace or a hat. Accessories can also be fun way to create cute poses and a great way to show your personality!
