Picking your outfits

Most importantly make sure that everyone is comfortable in what they are wearing.  I will get you to sit on the ground, walk around and play games with eachother so I don’t want you to be distracted by being uncomfortable during these activities.

There is no need to wear matching outfits, but do pay attention to wearing matching colours or pick a colour palette and try to find outfits from the same palette.

Large logos, very bold patterns or very bright colours can be distracting and take away from the final image.  Matching is subjective though, so ideally you want to pick colours and outfits that you love, so that your images reflect who you are as individually.

Dresses are great for creating movement in your images, long flowy dresses especially are lovely because they move as you move.

Collars and interesting necklines are another way to add some small details which make your images interesting.

Keep it interesting, think layers, scarves, hats, jackets, collars, skirts that move when you turn, interesting textures and special items.

If you are thinking of  wearing a hat make sure you are also comfortable with being photographed without it.  In some instances the hat can get in the way and be a distraction while it is a great way to add your personality to individual portraits.
