What  to Wear

Deciding what to wear for your session can seem like a huge chore. Following these simple tips will help you choose the perfect outfits for your upcoming session with ease! Don't forget to check your closet first!

DO - Choose a color scheme based on where you'd like to hang these pictures. Ex. If you're planning on a living room wall display and your living room is decorated with earth tones, choose colors that will coordinate. 
DON'T - Match. Leave the jeans and white t-shirts at home and instead choose a color scheme and coordinate.

DO - Layer. The more layers, the better. Sweaters, scarves, jewelry, blazer layers create visual interest and add texture throughout your photographs. They're a great addition!
DON'T - Be afraid of patterns. Plaids, polkadots, florals, and stripes can be overwhelming when all paired together, but mixing them up in a few patterns here and there are another great way to add some interest to your photo session. 

DO - Pay attention to your shoes! Shoes matter! A pair of nike sneakers mixed in with the cute boots and dress shoes can be an eye sore in your photos. Try to stick with neutral shoes for the whole family. 
DON'T - Wear logos. As much as shoes can be an eye sore, so can a big logo across a shirt. Try to steer clear of sports or brand logos or phrases across the front of your shirt. Again, this takes the attention away from the family and brings the eye right to the shirt. 

DO - Stay comfortable! Especially for Mom, pick something you love and build around that. Wear something you're comfortable sitting, standing, running, squatting, and playing in! You'll thank me later!
