What To Wear - A Suggested Clothing Guide For Your Portrait Session

Here are some key points to remember when deciding what clothes to choose for your session.

* Solid colours are best, so avoid large or bold patterns, checks, logos and bright colours. 

* Long sleeve dresses and shirts are recommended, though short sleeves are acceptable for infants and children.

* Long trousers are preferable to shorts - please don’t mix long trousers and shorts on different people for the same session.  

* Carefully select appropriate shoes and skirts, trousers etc, as we may take some full-length portraits.

* Darker clothing tends to minimize body size and lighter tones tend to emphasize body size.

* Necklines are important, a “Vee” or “scoop” neck is best for people with shorter necks and fuller faces. A polo neck or high necked garment is more flattering for people with longer necks and slender faces.

* Please dress everyone in the same style of clothing - it's best not to mix casual and formal attire.

* Keep the tonal range of clothing within the group the same. Don't mix light and dark clothing. 

* To assure a successful portrait, it's best to bring along several additional clothing choices so that we can help you get the very best out of your session.
