One of the biggest questions people ask when scheduling a shoot is: What should I wear??? There are many answers to this question. Today I am going to give you a few tips on deciding what to wear for your next shoot.
The firs thing you should realize is that a lot has changed over the years. The standard for a photo session was everyone matched. While this is a more classic look, it is not for everyone. Depending on your personality or your family, this look might not be for you and that is ok. This is a very simple and classic look that still a lot of families go for. It helps to avoid any distractions in the image. Other times you may see the white shirt with jeans. Another very classic look.
Nowadays families are trying to make everything unique and different from the last person. We all want our images to stand out and to be different. One of the easiest ways to do that is through our clothes. Clothes express us. So some families opt to not match in every detail but compliment one another. Some choose to have all the ladies wear one thing and guys wear another. Other times they keep a color scheme going and everyone sticks to that color. Another idea is to have a few solids with a pattern. Be care to have too many patterns and they cause the photo to be loud or busy.
Another thing to consider when choosing what to wear is to consider the location you are having your session at. If you are the beach and want to convey a more relaxed atmosphere, then you will want your outfit to do the same. If you are in the woods or a field you may want to convey a more rustic down to earth feel.
The idea is to choose something you are comfortable in, everyone compliments one another, and it goes with your location. At the end of the day you will be the subject of the image so you want it to be a reflection of you and your family. These are just a few tips that will help you out. For more ideas, you can always go to pinterest and find a ton of ideas there. Hope this helps. :)
