Getting ready for your session

never looked so good!

Here you will find all my hints and tips for getting ready for your session!

These are full of handy information in getting ready for your session. I'm only a message away to help guide you on the best styling to have you all looking your best!

My goal as your photographer is to make your whole experience as seamless and comfortable as possible. 

One of the main questions clients ask me is “What do I wear??” 

I hear ya. You’ve invested in your photography . . . and you want your photos to come out incredible, so you can use your images for all the things . . . .

If you look around my website, you can see my shooting and editing style is bright, airy, poppy, warm, and all about the connection.

Truth Bomb: What you wear will affect how your photos turn out. If you wear heavy and dark colors, or busy patterns your photos will not appear in a light and poppy way.

Here is list of general recommendations on what photographs well:

  • Neutrals (white, ivory, tan, grey, beige, etc..)
  • Matching color palettes, such as - Soft colors, blue, peach, pink, etc, Pastels.
  • Or move to earthy color ways
  • Solids or light florals; subtle patterns
  • Brown shoes - boots, sandals, they are a universal look that matches almost everything
  • Neutral underwear
  • Consider the season, have cardigans or knits with you if the weather is likely to get cold as the evening goes on


Highly recommend not wearing:

  • Graphic tees
  • Sweatshirts
  • Busy patterns
  • Identical matching outfits
  • All black and very dark colors like blocks of Navy
  • Bright sneakers - colors, or bright white are distracting
  • Shirts with small, thin lines


[If you prefer to dress in darker clothes, try adding accents with dark blue, black ,etc… rather than the whole outfit]

Pro Tip: Don’t be afraid to dress up a little!

Remember, these are just basic recommendations and guidelines. This photo session is about you! I want you to feel like you! I want you be comfortableI want you to feel beautiful!
