What to wear when having your photo taken

When working with new clients, the number one question that I am asked is, “What should we wear for our portrait session?”. Most importantly, I suggest choosing something that you feel comfortable in. In general I offer the following tips:

Dark colored clothing (especially pants) works well because it has a slimming effect in photographs.

**Avoid solid white or cream tops as they can reflect light in certain settings.

Dress a group in complementary colors.

Wear classic styles to prevent the photograph from looking outdated later.

Jeans photograph well, and barefeet look awesome on the beach!

Choose a hue that complements your eye color.

A bit more make-up than normal appears natural in photos.

Avoid ballcaps and clothing with logos.

Colorful accessories like scarves and jewelry can enhance the photo in an understated way.

I’ve had a real uptick in requests for head shots of all types ~ corporate, professional, lifestyle, dating site, model, actor/actress, commercial and Linked In Bio/Profile photos. Here is a little ‘snapshot’ of some of the different looks that clients have needed (every industry and use is unique).
