What to wear to your Photoshoot | Perth Photographer

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.

Zina has been our go to photographer for a number of sessions now. We did a newborn package for my youngest son, a family sunset beach shoot and most recently did an extended family shoot for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. This wasn’t an easy feat with so many people but Zina made it look easy! Zina is a true professional and knows how to get the best out of the younger children. She takes a nice mix of staged and candid photos. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

The best photography experience ever. Starting with maternity shoot, we went to wrong place then Zina waited for us to arrive at the right place and was so understanding. New born shoot so patient and caring waiting to get the right photograph of our newborn. All our images from maternity shoot and newborn are amazing and forever grateful for Zina for capturing these moments.
