Styling/Clothing and Color Choices:
I’m often asked about clothing. Clothing and color choices are very important, and they can greatly impact the final look of the photographs. Below I have listed some suggestions, and I have created a Pinterest board to help guide you along the way.
Coordinate a color scheme, but don’t match.
Avoid solid bright, bold reds, oranges, and pinks; these can create an unflattering color cast on the skin. Instead choose a softer shade of color, a pastel, or muted tone. For example, instead of wearing hot pink, choose a soft shade of pink.
Avoid anything neon; remember softer colors will photograph better.
Softer shades of colors photograph much better, and they are more flattering to the skin. Look for pretty muted colors or neutrals.
Avoid tight patterns (commonly seen in mens dress shirts); this can cause a wonky look in images called chromatic aberration.
Sometimes it’s best to start with Mom’s dress/outfit, then coordinate rest of the family around the dress. Below are some suggestions for places to find great dresses.

Some clients have also had luck at forever21, Amazon, and local boutiques.
