What to Wear for Your Portrait Session *
Wear solid colored clothing
Choose muted tones that are a bit subdued
Choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light)
Choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy – all dark jewel tones. OR tan, a lighter olive green, and denim – all lighter, softer tones.
Choose a top with sleeves at least to the elbow
Choose long pants for men/ladies or a skirt below the knee for ladies
Choose dark socks and footwear (unless it’s a barefoot photo on the beach)
Keep jewelry simple and minimal
Do your hair the way you’d normally do it while wearing these clothes
If getting a haircut or new hairdo, make your appointment at least 1-2 weeks prior to your portrait session
