Choosing the Right Outfit for Your Session | Oakland Lifestyle Photographer

How to Choose the Right Outfits for Your Photoshoot

If you’re feeling overwhelmed trying to choose the perfect outfits for your upcoming photoshoot, don’t worry any longer as we have all of the top tips for a great shoot. There are a few simple rules to follow and a few things you can do to make your photos look great for years to come. Take a look at our ideas below to choose the right outfits for your photoshoot.

Consider the purpose of the shoot

The first thing is to consider the purpose of the photoshoot. Your outfits may be based on the purpose behind the photoshoot, such as engagement photos vs. a family Christmas photoshoot. Choose outfits based on the occasion and consider what type of colors and styles you want to share on your walls when the photos come back ready to be framed.

Coordinate with each other

Next, you’ll want to coordinate with the rest of your party. If you’re going to utilize any patterns or prints, make sure they are paired with solid colors. You can mix and match or just choose to complement each other with a similar color scheme.

You don’t have to all wear the same outfit, but you also shouldn’t wear things that don’t look like they belong together. Bring out your personalities with accessories, such as ties for the guys or hats for the girls. Clothing collections at stores are a great way to find various colors and patterns that go together.

Make sure things fit properly

It’s really important that your clothes fit properly and you are comfortable. If you are uncomfortable, it will show in the photos. Make sure you feel confident and wear things that flatter you. Try it on before the shoot to make sure it fits and complements your body type.

Go for timeless, neutral looks

The best way to go with your clothing is to choose neutral color palettes. That’s because you and your family want to be the focus of the photo rather than having the outfit be the center of focus. Choosing neutrals will also make sure that everyone coordinates and that the photos will look great on any wall in your home.

Bring in texture to add depth to your photos and accessories like scarves and belts to add interest. Avoid something all black or white, while warm earth tones are usually a win.
