What to wear? What shall I wear to for my photo session?

“What to wear” – This is always the number 1 question people ask after booking a photo shoot. But lets face it I ask myself that question everytime I get up in the morning and stare at my wardrobe hoping from inspiration from the fashion gods. Yes I hope my hand up I have found myself turning to instagram and you tube for looking at ladies that have more style in there little finger than i do in my whole body.  So what i really want to say is that there really aren’t really any “rules” for what to wear I do have some tips that I have put together to help you come up up with a fashion plan!

DO: Wear something you feel comfortable in! You want to be able to have fun and feel relaxed during your photo shoot, so be sure you are all wearing something that will help you feel relaxed! Also, layer, layer, LAYER! Pair a shirt with a vest, add in a sweater or jacket, and top it off with fun accessories like scarves, hats, or anything else that you think will work! Layers work really well with family photo shoots.

DON’T: Feel like you have to match. It’s not about all wearing the same exact thing; it’s more about finding coordinating colours and styles that flow well together.

Please keep in mind – I’m not saying you need to look exactly like any of these. If you already have ideas on your outfits, that is perfectly fine! This is just for those of you who need inspiration. And that’s just what this is – inspiration and ideas on some styling options that I like.

At the end of the day, it’s really not about the clothing. I’m going to be capturing the love and connections between your FAMILY! That’s the most important thing. So don’t feel too stressed out about finding the ‘perfect outfit’ for everyone. Just have fun with it!  And if you have ANY questions along the way, please don’t hesitate to ask!
