First and foremost, these photographs are all about you. That means they should convey your personality and style preferences. If you’re earthy and casual, stick with that. If you prefer glitz and glam, play it up. It’s important to be yourself during your session, so wear something that reflects you. If you wear something you’d typically never put on, you’ll feel uncomfortable.
Make it Pop
With that said, you can still amplify your personal style by playing with colors and textures. Find a nice mix of neutral colors and then add a few pops where you can. Make sure not to be too matchy matchy, no white tops and blue jeans for everyone! If you want to wear a print, pull out the complimentary colours for others to wear so the look is cohesive. Avoid logo shirts and distracting patterns. Also, don’t be afraid to play with texture, either. Fuzzy furs, textured knits and flowing fabrics make for great photos.
Pressed and Polished
It’s a good idea to get a quick manicure (guys, too!), trim, wax or do whatever it is you do to polish up. Remember we are creating peices of art to display in your home.
