Style Guide – Preparing outfits for your session

Not sure what to wear for your pictures and they are tomorrow?!? Been there, felt that way. Instead of getting overwhelmed looking at your closet thinking, “what the heck do we wear?”, check out these easy and quick tips to achieving a look you want:

COLOR:

  • Don’t be afraid to be color coordinated! It’s okay for you to have the same color on, as long as we don’t make it too matchy-matchy.
  • Don’t be afraid of color itself. Don’t get sucked back into the old trend of all black or white tops with jeans. While this can be an okay starting point, this isn’t 2000. Let’s mix it up a little by:
  • Choose prints and textures mixed with solids. This is my favorite way to mix things up within a couple or family and is so easy to implement.
  • Choose a color that each family member can wear that complements each other.

LAYERS:

  • This is a simple way to change up your look! You can choose a basic bottom and top and use patterns& textures to add variety to the layers you add. Using undershirts, jackets, sweaters, or vests are just some ways to add layers.

ACCESSORIES:

  • Jewelry can add dimension to your outfit. I recommend choosing a necklace that is symmetrical so that you don’t have to worry about it being perfectly aligned.
  • Scarves, bracelets, earrings, belts, hairbands & bows, and even hats are all great ways to bring interest to your clothing and can easily be switched out to alter your look.

Lori – Portraits {Rexburg & Blackfoot Photographer}

I had the gorgeous Lori in my studio for the Women in Uniform project I am working on. She is so lovely and I had a wonderful time working with her. I will be doing a separate post for the Women in Uniform series soon, but for now, here is her looking stunning in a vintage outfit and a few others 🙂
