Category: What to Wear
One of the first questions that most clients ask is “What should I/we wear?” My response is typically runs along these lines “Something that makes you feel good… an outfit that is comfortable and reflects you… the outfit that you always receive compliments when wearing… one that brings out your eyes… etc.” If you feel good about what you are wearing, it will show through the images that are taken. Whenever shooting more than one person, I suggest coordinating without being an exact match. If going all neutral, add a pop of color in accessories or shoes. Pull out colors from one of the outfits. See the image below. Every solid colored top was pulled from the little girls dress. Yet, if you pull that dress out of the equation, the colors still work very nicely together.
I was reminded by my fashion guru sister-in-law at Wild Ruffle to put up another “What to Wear” guide.

Remember, everyone does not need to wear the exact same outfit or color. You can find an outfit that has a few colors in it for one person and pull out colors from that for everyone else.
