What To Wear For Photoshoots
This may be the number one question I get as a photographer. What should I wear to our session?? Well here’s my best advice on what to wear to your shoot and what to avoid.
DRESS FOR COMFORT
This is always my first response to this question. I know it can be tempting, or even pressuring, to feel like you need the perfect ‘look’ or ‘coordinated outfit’ for a shoot, but more often than not, that causes more stress than relief. Trust me when I say that if you feel uncomfortable, it is the first thing that I notice through my lense. This isn’t the time to pick the high-maintenance, off-the-shoulder top that more-often-than-not has to be adjusted constantly. I want you to pick something that you love and that brings you comfort, because you will be that much more relaxed during a session, and that is what will reflect well in your photos. I love to add movement into my posing, so things that breathe, that you can walk and play in are perfect!
STAY AWAY FROM TOO MANY ACCESSORIES
Fashion accessories can be super fun to incorporate into an outfit, and even encouraged when used sparingly, and they don’t pull focus away from you. Colorful earrings, a cute hat, cardigan, accent booties, these are all examples of things that pop when paired with a neutral color. However, wearing your tassel earrings, paired with a hat, matching belt buckle, and plaid shirt, will pull the attention everywhere in the photo. Even two special accessories can be two too many for the photo. Keep it simple, because chances are the background of the photo will also have a little detail that could contradict a flower headband/beaded necklace combo.
