What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are as a family, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where the final images will be displayed.

Be sure to plan your outfits completely several days before your session. Here are some general rules for making picture-perfect fashion decisions:

Choose a palette of 3-4 colors and then mix it up! You want a cohesive feel but without being overly ‘matchy-matchy.’ Picture a page in a clothing catalog where everyone coordinates, but nobody stands out more than the rest.

Be sure all clothes are clean and pressed and on hangers a few days before your session so we don’t end up with anything wrinkled.

Don’t forget about shoes! Make sure they coordinate and are cleaned up, too.
