What to Wear

* Don’t be afraid to go with a theme, anything that represents you and your lifestyle- casual, classic, bohemian, formal.Fitted clothing makes for best photographs. Bring an elastic brown or black belt to cinch dresses and blouses that may look bulky on

* Clothing should have the same level of formality. It’s very difficult to marry a look when one person is all buttoned up and someone else is in sneakers and a t-shirt.

* Color, layers and textures are important. Layering it up adds tremendous depth to the photograph.

* Adding a pop of color to your outfit can really make a photo. Red shoes, a yellow jacket, bright scarf, are great ways to add color to your photographs.

* Accessorize your outfits. Accessorizing your outfits with objects such as hats, jewelry, jackets, scarfs, can create a very stylized look.

* Avoid wearing a lot of white. Not only can white totally wash out a person, it easily picks up pesky color casts, and can blow up the highlights preventing good skin tones.

* Sleeveless shirts, high necklines and clothing with large logos/print on them do not provide a timeless look. On the contrary, they provide a distraction to your photos and take the spotlight away from the subjects in the photograph.

* Coordinate your outfits without looking overly “matchy”. Find a color palette you love and piece together items from that palette that are complimentary to one another.
