What to Wear

I get this question a lot. Be comfortable and choose clothes that make you feel good. I want you to be at ease during your photos. Dress according to the season. Look for clothes that have interesting textures and patterns, layering, unique shoes and accessories.  I love layering and accessories-they add so much texture and interest to the photo.  I love when moms wear dresses.  Don't forget about the guys.  I have noticed that men tend to go for the plain button down shirt and I recommend the addition of a vest, scarf, hat, etc. to add interest.   If we're doing a family shoot, choose a color pallet of colors that coordinate well with each other but avoid heavy matching.   Currently, I love pastels and creams and greys.  For maternity, I've got you covered.  I have over 30 gorgeous gowns that are available for your session.  Check out my Pinterest board if you need more ideas.
