Please see the "On Location Session Ideas" page for ideas about where to shoot your session.
Wardrobe: Essentially, less is more. Keep it simple. Solid colors are best. Avoid large, bold patterns and bright colors that draw attention away from your face. Darker clothing slims. If at all possible, avoid all white unless we are going to be shooting in a location in which white will be accentuated. Avoid busy patterns and clothing with logos and or branding. Try to steer clear of trendy wardrobe choices and choose classic pieces that will not make your portrait outdated. With cooler weather, consider layering pieces for different pops of color and textures.
Coordinating Wardrobe Choices: Instead of perfectly matching outfits, consider pieces and colors that work well together. Be sure to choose colors that are complimentary (opposites on the color wheel) or analogous (side by side on the color wheel) colors for your clothes and accessories.
Adding Personal Touches: For a personal touch, bring a favorite item or prop to the session (balloons, umbrellas, hat, etc) or personalize with accessories. The details matter and these items can be the glue that brings an outfit together.
