What to Wear

What should I wear to my session? 


First of all I want you to be comfortable, and I want your images to reflect who YOU really are. But I also want you to feel like your best self, so you will work it in front of the camera.  I always suggest bringing more than one change of clothes if you are not sure what you will be comfortable in, what the weather is going to be like, or even if you want a few different looks!

 I recommend jeans and a nice top, preferably a solid color (so that we see you and not your clothes! Stripes and patterns like plaid do not always translate well to film.) Textures (like scarves) are also fun to change it up! For family photos I also recommend that you stick to something more casual so you are comfortable to explore our location and then we can produce the best images of you! 

Layers is also a great option, as it is easy to change to look of the images. Layers also work well in urban settings.

For group sessions you can dress similarly, (same color family perhaps? Everyone in jeans?) but you do not need to wear exactly the same thing! I want your photos to reflect yourselves, so if that means dressing different—go for it!

For children bright solid colors are always good. There is always the chance to change it up with an accessory or two (how cute is a baby in a woolen toque?!) Newborns always look classic when they are bare or just diapered.

Be comfortable, be casual and be YOU....because when you are we capture the most amazing images of you! 


Below are some examples of families that coordinated quite nicely without being too matchy, and If you still need some inspiration I've pinned a bunch of ideas here on Pinterest!
