What to Wear to Your Photoshoot

Professional photos is an investment, so you want to make sure that you are wearing someone that looks good for the photos. Simply pulling out any outfit from the closet might not be enough; especially if you are planning a family photo shoot.

Tips For Choosing the Right Outfit.

Don’t overcomplicate it. Choose a comfortable outfit that you can wear without worry. If you constantly readjusting your outfit, necklace, earnings etc., you won’t enjoy your experience.

Coordinate Colours

Coordinate your colours and not your outfits. Select two colours and two neutrals and work from there. You can choose an outfit with patterns; however, don’t all wear patterns!

Consider your home decor if you are planning on displaying your photos on your wall. Make sure that the colours you choose go with the colours in your home. For white walls, you may want to go for a black and white theme or choose a strong accent colour that matches your furniture.

PRO Tip! Get Mum to choose her outfit first!

Dress For Victor Harbor Weather

Dress to suit your location. If your location is the beach, colour colordinate your outfits to compliment the colours of the sand and the ocean. If using nature as a backdrop, earthy tones work best. For studio photos, avoid wearing colours that are the same as your chosen backdrop. A black shirt will blend into a black background, which may give you the appearance of a floating head!

Avoid clothes with large graphics or logos as these will be very distracting and make your photos look too busy. Stick with plain teeshirts.
