A Neutral Wardrobe Selection
Meet the Hou Family! I took their photos this past fall and was immediately was in love with the neutral wardrobe selection Liz chose. The soft tones of her sweater dress, the sweet, thin plaid lines on her daughter’s dress, the creams and tans on her son’s clothing and on her husband’s clothing as well. It all made for a beautiful session with light reflecting up on their faces. Wardrobe choices make such a difference in the final images you get from your session! Lighter, neutral colors add light to shadows, while darker colors, like black, add more shadows to your images.
How Do You Want To Use Your Images?
You also want to be mindful of what you want to use these images from your session for in the end. What is your end goal? Do you want to use them on a Christmas card? Will your choice of clothes look good for that? Do you want to hang them as enlargements on your walls? Think about the colors of your home and seeing these images for the next 365 days or more. In my experience it’s best to find classy, more dressy outfit choices for everyone.
Help to Plan Your Neutral Wardrobe
I am happy to help any of my clients with their wardrobe for their upcoming session! We can send photos and links back and forth until you find what you know will look good and feel good on you as a family. There’s a good chance you may already have several options for outfits in your closets. I highly encourage mamas to pick their dress or outfit first and then base everyone else off of that. Don’t leave your outfit for last, my friend!
