What To Wear

This is the question I am asked the most, "What should we wear?" First of all, choose a color palette, fairly neutral, but not boring! I think three or four colors work best. Then, everyone coordinates or blends - no matching! Everyone can have their own variation using all or one or two of these colors. This way, everyone is able to show their personality but you still blend for a nice wall portrait.

Of course your location and the season has a lot to do with the color palette you choose, so does the location of where you will be placing your portrait. If you want a large wall hanging for a very formal room, keep that in mind when choosing colors and the setting of the session. If you want a more relaxed look, then there are more appropriate settings and color palettes for that.

The key is for the mom to find a great outfit that she knows she looks good in and is comfortable in and then build the rest around that!

Start looking early, you may think it will be easy to find shirts in a certain color, but if you are looking for it, it's almost guaranteed it's impossible to find, so don't wait until the night before your session to shop.

And of course, if you are ever unsure, call me!
