Over the years, this is the one question that I have been asked more so than not, and I figure it’s time to write a blog post on it!
I’m going to go over trends, and what to wear to stand out and make the best out of your session!
1. Show off the shoes!
Even though 2/3 of the session will not be featuring your fabulous kicks, the the 1/3 that do, we want to make sure they POP! Make sure to add a pop of color to the shoes! They can be heels, converse or your favorite pair of booties!
2. Big jewelry
If one of your outfits consist of a simple dress or a plain color, to add depth and interest, be sure to throw on a great statement necklace or chunky bracelet!
3. Show off your best assests!
If you love your legs, don’t hide them! You rock that short dress or cute pair of shorts!
4. Dress for your surroundings
You wouldn’t wear heels to the beach, so make sure you dress to match the environment!
5. Be Practical
If you want to do those oh-so-cute active shots, where he is picking you up and twirling, be aware of this and realize that maybe a short dress won’t be good for the pick you up shots!
PLEASE do NOT do matchy matchy! You do not want to look like twins! But coordinate so your color schemes are in tact. For instance, yellow heels, yellow tie, navy blue dress, navy blue vest. Subtle coordination is best and WILL show up in your photos!
7. Pick clothes that move well
A high low dress would work perfect, if you plan on doing shots of movement (walking, running) this will work so well with the concept!
8. DO NOT DRESS UNCOMFORTABLY!
Please don’t go out and buy a new pair of shoes that you have not had time to break in. Don’t dress out of your comfort zone, because when your uncomfortable, your photographs will make you look it.
9. Details are VERY important
Details help create and tell your story, believe it or not, your grandmothers necklace that she gave to you? It makes for a beautiful story-telling piece, be sure to pay attention to the details and not exclude them!
10. Don’t shy away from the spotlight
Go for that bold skirt girl! ROCK IT! I love color, and the camera does too! Especially if your man opts for neutral colors, pick something that will compliment but add a nice splash of interesting prints or bold colors!
