3 Tips on What to Wear to a Photo Shoot

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

I have had so many people ask me already about what wear. Picking out the right outfit to wear to a photoshoot doesn't have be a long completed process, And you don't have to go out and buy expensive clothing either. It can be as simple as 123.

1. Wear Something Light Colored

Wearing neutral or pastel colored items lets your photographer be more free where she places you. For example bright red dresses( tho they are pretty) placed in the wrong light can leave a red hue or on a clients face. And we don't want that!

Verses wearing a neutral or light color can actually reflect really pretty light onto a clients face.

2.Wear Something Dark


I know I know! I just contradicted myself. lol But dark colors add contrast in a photo against light colors. Dark colors can add that bit of pop the image is needing. Another reason to add dark colors, is they can be very sliming. So if you are areas that you are self conscience about, try wearing something dark around those areas.

3. Go Easy on the Prints

Prints can cause an issue whenever they show up in photos. The tiny little prints like flowers, or small checkered prints can sometimes look distorted in a photo. And those large bold flowers can draw attention away from the persons face. So Its best to mostly keep it to solid colors.

Light plaids or "easy to look at prints" are ok in moderation. But I would definitely not go overboard with them.

And lastly keep your outfits simple and coordinated. Pick out about two to three different colors and stick to them. A good way to do this, is to lay them all out on the bed beside each other and make sure that they all go good together. If your eye is drawn to one thing or another then that is a good sign that it will probably stick out too much in the photos and draw your attention away from your pretty faces.
