Many of my clients ask for advice on what to wear during a photo shoot. I alway have two pieces of advice for a family, couple, maternity, and children’s photo shoot.
- Coordinate but don’t Match. You want to display individual personalities and have colors be cohesive vs the same color. When you break up the color scheme with patterns and tones, the image is visually more appealing. The above mood board is an example of this point. The pink dress compliments the various shades of blue found in the dress, polo and button down. The lighter color of the button down also helps to break up the other colors.
- Be Comfortable. If you are comfortable during the photo shoot, it will show in the images. You want the experience to be positive and being comfortable is key. If you don’t enjoy wearing dresses or your husband never wears a suit, photo shoot day is not the time to break out these items.
You have made an investment in both your time and money to capture images and memories of you and your loved ones, so working with your photographer prior to the photo shoot is important. Other factors to consider when dressing for your photo shoot are: location, weather and time of day.
