What Should You Wear?
Years of experience have taught us the littlest details can make the biggest difference in your portrait. In order to make your session enjoyable with successful results, be sure to consider the following tips from our experienced photographer.

Simplicity is always the best choice when choosing clothing for your portrait session. Darker colors are usually best for light-skinned people, and lighter colors are best for people with dark skin. Avoid patterns, as they are a distraction and compete with your face. The darkest part of the outfit should be on the bottom.

For outdoor portrait sessions, dark colors and earth tones are best. Avoid white or similar light colors as they compete with the dark backgrounds we find outdoors. Unless the session is being done with bright fall colors, avoid yellow, orange and red when sessions are in forested areas like parks. Always wear the darkest colors on the bottom of the outfit.

Long sleeves are the best choice. Bare arms compete with the face and often appear larger because of their lighter tone.

Glasses present problems like distortion and glare. The simplest and cheapest way to correct these problems is to borrow empty frames from your eye doctor. It is especially important to have empty frames if you have “photo-gray” lenses in your glasses. Artwork can correct distortion, glare and tints, but there are extra fees associated with these services.

While paying attention to these tips be sure to choose a wardrobe that represents you and will ensure your comfort during the photography session. Wearing clothes you feel confident in will your personality shine in your portraits.

  1. Hi Phil-
    I’m looking for a photographer to do a family photo shoot for my parents 50th anniversary.
    We are from out of town and renting a cottage on Lake Pesobic. The only time we have available where our three families will be together is Sat. August 19th st 6pm or later or Sunday afternoon August 20th. Would you be willing to work a day that you have off-and no worries if not. ( I understand your family time is precious, but I thought I would email and ask.)
    If so what would be the sitting cost for an outdoor location, your choice, in the area. There is three familys: my parents, my brother and his wife and twin 8 year old boys, and me, my husband and two children, 9&6.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.
    Kim Disalvo
