WHAT TO WEAR

Families should coordinate as best as they can.  This does not mean “matching” necessarily.  Consider this:  Lay all the clothes out on a bed and look at whether they go well together.  Do your eyes gravitate to a single shirt because it is very busy or very bright?  Typically you’ll want to steer clear of big stripes, plaids, and other “loud” patterns.  They visually dominate the photograph.  Solids work the best, but other patterns that may be small or subtle also work well since they read like solids from a distance.  


Layering and using accessories is a great idea.  Hats, necklaces, scarves, boots, and belts always look great.


If possible, limit wearing white to only one outfit. 


Dresses for little baby girls may look so cute on the hanger, but oftentimes they are the perfect way to show off the bloomers!  Young children will spend a lot of the session seated, and everyone knows how fidgety kiddos can be.  It is be best to limit the use of dresses and skirts to only one outfit.


It is also a good idea to bring a hair brush to your session to periodically freshen up.
