STYLING TIPS & TRICKS
Sticking with neutral tones will give you a look that transcends time. Try to avoid any colors that are too bright as they can pull the eye away from your connection and love. Below are great options.
Dress for the season. You want to be comfortable with whatever the temperature is. Add layers if it is going to be cold out or dress down in looser clothing if it will be hot.
Think more coordinating and less matching. Layering in texture through cardigans, jean jackets, etc. and adding in small prints, stripes, & plaids is also great for breaking up too much solid and can make your images much more visually appealing.
Style mom first and build from there. Wear what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful If you are uncomfortable/self-conscious, it will show through in the images.
Keep your kids in clothes that fit them; especially babies. We don’t want to lose them in their clothes. For newborn sessions, less is more to capture that sweet little babe.
When it comes to shoes, break out the special occasion shoes and avoid the tennies. Also consider the terrain we will be walking, stilettos are prone to sinking into the grass. Feel free to bring a second pair of shoes to walk to our location in.
For lifestyle sessions, ditch the shoes for bare-feet or non-distracting socks. These sessions are very casual and laid back.
Things to avoid:
+ Anything with logos or words unless it makes sense i.e. t-shirt announcing sibling.
+ Carrying your phone, keys, etc. in your pockets.
+Chipped nail polish. Aim for full polish or none.
+ Wearing bulky watches. I prefer people to remove Apple watches.
+ Anything uncomfortable or too tight.
+ Undergarments that don't work with your outfit.
+ Neon or bright colors.
