I am often asked, "What should we wear to our session?" So I have created a style guide for all of my clients! These are small tips that you can choose to follow, or not! Whether you booked a family shoot, couples shoot, or newborn shoot, this guide will help you choose cohesive outfits for the best possible photos.


there are so many "yes!" choices but here are my top 5 suggestions

  • When in doubt, wear solids or neutrals! Neutrals promise a timeless look that will never get old. White & creams are not just for weddings, they tie in colors & help outfits look cohesive!
  • Not into plain neutrals? Have one person wear a pattern to add interest. Pick a color or pattern you love and coordinate from there!!
  • Wear clothes that fit! Loose, baggy clothing can photograph unflattering. My suggestion is to alway "dress up" just a little bit more!

Neutrals, fitted clothes, and white on this sweet couple!


avoiding these simple things can make or break your session

  • Avoid matching completely. Choose colors that complement each other- like the image to the left!
  • Avoid large logos and neon colors. Too many competing colors or patterns (like everyone in flannels!) can distract and take our focus away from what's important- the love and connection between your family!
  • Avoid athletic shoes or dressing "too casual", like a sweatshirt, workout clothes, or like you are going to Applebees.

Bold yet neutral colors; button ups; long flowy dresses look amazing!

For the ladies

  • Wear something you feel comfortable in. A maxi dress, flowy dress, or jeans with a cute top to dress it up! I don't recommend short dresses since we will be moving around, sitting, and playing for your session

for the men

  • Dress up! Wear slacks, dark or light fitted jeans, button ups, solid t-shirts. I love Henley t-shirts! I don't recommend patterned shirts or shirts with logos for the men!

for the kiddos

  • Dress them comfortably for the weather- a too hot or too cold kiddo isn't fun for anyone!
