Tips for Dressing for Your Session

We understand that choosing the right clothing for your photoshoot can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we’re here to provide you with some helpful tips to ensure you look and feel your best during your session. Remember, the focus should be on you and your family, not what you’re wearing. Let’s dive in!

1. **Say No to Patterns:** Avoid bold geometric patterns, stripes, and chevrons. These types of patterns can be distracting and take attention away from the most important aspect of the photo – you! Opt for solid colors or subtle textures instead.

2. **Consider the Upper Arms:** As we age, we may feel conscious about our upper arms. If you prefer to minimize their appearance, choose clothing styles with sleeves or consider layering with a lightweight cardigan or wrap.

3. **Hips and Thighs:** Many of us have concerns about our hips and thighs, especially after childbirth. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! To flatter this area, opt for clothing styles that flow away from the body, such as A-line dresses or skirts. These can create a beautiful silhouette while providing comfort.

4. **Addressing Tummy Bulge:** Let’s be real – most of us have a little extra love around the midsection. Embrace your body and choose clothing styles that are forgiving yet flattering. Consider empire-waist dresses or tops that skim over the tummy area.

5. **Choosing Colors:** When it comes to colors, go for coordinating shades that complement each other. Soft pastels, earth tones, or muted shades work well for a cohesive look. Avoid overly bright or clashing colors that can be distracting.

6. **Hot Weather Considerations:** If you’re planning an outdoor session in hot and humid weather, keep comfort in mind. Opt for lightweight fabrics and breathable materials. Ladies, consider wearing flowy dresses or skirts that can catch the breeze and add a touch of whimsy to your photos.

7. **Hair and Wind:** Wind can be a beautiful natural element in outdoor photoshoots, but it can also wreak havoc on your hair. Consider styling your hair in a way that allows for easy management in case of wind. Bringing hair accessories like headbands or clips can help keep your hair in place and add a touch of style to your look.

8. **Traditional White and Khaki:** While we encourage creativity and personal style, we understand that some groups prefer a more traditional look. If you opt for the classic white and khaki or jeans combination, that’s absolutely okay! It can create a timeless and cohesive look, especially for large multifamily groups.

Remember, these are just guidelines to help you feel confident and comfortable during your session.
