What to wear for your session..

What you wear matters more than you think…

Styled sessions.

It takes more than a cute subject and fantastic light to create an extraordinary portrait… The clothes you wear and accessories add texture and depth to the photograph so it is important to get it right. Here are a few DO’S and DONT’S for your photography session:

DO coordinate but don’t match.

Pick out a few colours to coordinate between subjects when working with a palette of softer tones and neutrals.

DO go for soft colours such as cream, beige, dusky pink, light grey. They always compliment the subject and don’t take your attention away from them by overpowering the picture.

DO go for a smart look with boys. As much as their favourite Spider-man jumper might be a tempting option, it’s hard to create artistic and timeless portraits with overly modern and urban clothes.

DO accessorize. Scarves, hats, headbands, flowers- all these things can make an image look complete.

DON’T wear overly bright colours. They cast visible shadows on people’s skin and take your eye away from the subject.

DON’T wear logos or clothing with writing and/or cartoon characters.

DON’T use sportswear for your portrait session.
