Some of my favorite recommendations for sessions are earth tones and neutral colors to keep your images looking timeless. I want to capture you and your family naturally, and in something that makes you feel beautiful. I encourage my clients to dress true to themselves and also what feels comfortable!
When choosing your wardrobe, I often suggest families stay within a neutral, organic color palette to keep your images looking classic and bright. My favorite colors to photograph are soft neutrals and earth tones. Colors that are very vibrant may reflect on skin. Too many dark colors can cause shadowing and make your images appear dark. I love a good print or pattern, but for timeless imagery, I recommend choosing prints and patterns that are minimal and soft.
Layering and mixing different textures, colors and subtle patterns add interest to your images without looking too matchy. Soft, flowing material photographs beautifully while accentuating movement. Look for solids that layer together, with details in the texture such as knits and linen. It’s all in the details, make sure your clothing fits well and you feel comfortable moving around.
Above all, keep in mind that simplicity is always more!
