TIPS FOR LOOKING YOUR BEST
Sometimes outfits could be the difference between an amazing image and just another image. I want nothing less than AMAZING photos for all my clients, so I put together some tips, my styling do’s and don’ts.
The main thing is to wear clothes that you look and feel confident in. I always like to style the ladies first and build everything else off of them. I always suggest flowing dresses. They move beautifully and movement brings EMOTIONS to the photos.
MUTED and earthy colors such as brown, black, tan, rust, beige, olive green, dark gray, etc. are the BEST! They work with different backgrounds and my editing style beautifully. If you like patterns choose small versus large patterns for less distraction.
CHECK OUT MY DO’S AND DON’TS!
MY sTYLIng do's
- Natural fabrics that are comfortable, move & have texture to them such as linen, gauze, or relaxed cotton.
- Natural versus pure white
- Jewelry that is not overpowering
- Palette has everyone in a unique look but still cohesive
- Accessories such as a brimmed hat, vests, fringe, dusters, etc to bring visual interest to photos
- Transparency adds DRAMA to photos
- Nude color undergarments for transparent dresses
- Natural make-up without bright/ dark eye shadows. If the foundation is being used that should match your skin color (face & neck)
MY sTYLIng don'ts
- Stiff fabrics and fabrics that easily wrinkle
- Overly matchy-matchy palettes & outfits
- Vibrant colors (they don’t edit well with my style)
- Nail polish that catches the eye. That causes a distraction for close-up pictures. No nail polish is perfectly fine
- Wedges, heels, or any kind of shoe that you can’t move freely (barefoot is perfectly fine for the beach)
- Watches, stuffed pockets, baseball caps, sunglasses, and logos (these are all distractions)
- I am not a fan of Polo shirts
- Jewelry that distracts from connection and requires constant adjustments.
