What to wear for your upcoming shoot
Updated: Jan 25, 2018
If you are unsure of what to wear for our upcoming shoot, regardless of the season or weather, neutral, darker tones are always safe. Avoid wearing bright colors since they reflect off your skin and will give your skin tone some unwanted color.
I know spring and summer time is great for bright and colorful colors. For example, if you love pink, try for a very subtle and soft pink. Vibrant colors like oranges, pinks, reds, blues, greens, and yellows can be very bright and colorful in photos depending on the tone and shade of the color. If you just love these colors, find something that is soft or toned down. Also think about your location that time of year, what colors compliment the scenery best? The less bright and bold, the better. If your personality is bright and vibrant and you don't own anything colorful that is subtle, try going for pastels, white, ivory, cream, tan, gray, black, etc. You can never go wrong with neutral tones!
In case you're wondering, fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year for photos. I love the fall colors when shooting outdoors. Some of my favorite color suggestions would be burgundy, maroon, army green, rust/dark orange, dark yellow/gold, navy/dark blue, flannels, vest, blankets, (I got off topic). Anyway, I think you get the idea. These colors go great with the fall theme, so if we have an upcoming photoshoot in the fall, please avoid wearing spring or summer colors!
For winter, I love sparkles. Okay, I guess that isn't a color. I love gold, silver, red, green, blue, black, purple! I think these are great colors for the holidays, especially if we are outside in the snow!
People tend to think that you just have to dress up for photos. But specific outfit choice and colors do matter! Don't be afraid to jazz it up a bit. Throw on a cute hat or a scarf. Bring props that represent you! It's okay to have fun with it. These are your photos and make it what you want!
When in doubt, neutral out!
