Before every photo session we give our clients an advice on what to wear for a photo session as the outfit has an impact of the final image.

To make it easy, we have put together a few bullet point with basic rules (see below). Please reach out to us if you have further questions.

 

FAMILY PHOTO SESSION (applies to Couples, Kids and Newborn photo sessions)

  • Simple is better (simple and basic clothes is the best)
  • Neutral and solid colours or rich jewel tones
  • It is suggested to avoid white and black colours as they can cause loosing details on the outfit, beige and grey work better
  • Keep location in mind - for beach and sunset photo sessions rich colours stand out, for busy background neutral tones work better
  • Try to avoid large symbols, logos and busy patterns and also very bright colours which would dominate the screen
  • No need to colour match eveyrones clothes but try to coordinate colours
    • best is to pick couple of colours and choose clothes that will fit in this colour scheme
    • it also helps to lay your clothes down on the bed to see how outfits work together
    • if you plan to hang your print in your home you can stick to the same colour scheme
  • Mix textures and colours - having everyone wearing jeans and white T-shit is very 90s
  • We recommend simple make-up and neat hair
  • Try not to overcomplicate things 
  • For newborn photo session all newborn props, wraps and outfits are provided unless requested otherwise
  • For maternity photo sessions you can try and use some of our maternity dresses 
  • All props, outfits and studio are cleaned and sanitised before and after each photo session

Corporate Headshots & Portraits

  • Simple is better applies for this type of photo shoot as well
  • Choose an outfit you feel confident and comfortable wearing 
  • Change of wardrobe is highly recommended (2 backgrounds are used during regular photo session) 
    • You might like other outfit on the image than you do prefer to wear
    • It provides you with more options to choose from (formal and casual looks will increase to usage opportunities of your photographs)
    • Usually 2 jackets and 2 shirts are recommended, or a blouse and shirt + jacket to allow combining
  • Light colours (pastels) or neutral/muted (grey, navy etc.) are usually the best 
  • We recommend simple make-up and neat hair
  • Accesorise: accent your outfit with necklase, sweater or blazer
  • Try to avoid large patterns (stripes or checks), mix of patterns, logos or multi-coloured tops
