What to Wear
Clothing choices help to tell your story and is a key element for beautiful, timeless portraits.
I recommend simple, clean and classic! For family portraits, wear coordinated outfits (not matching) with a simple palette of complementary neutral tones and colors.
I usually choose two to three main colors with maybe one accent pop of color.
Most importantly, please wear what reflects you best.
Remember that it gets cold in the mountains after the sun goes down!
- Wearing clothes with pockets always gives you options with what to do with your hands
- If possible, wear wool sweaters and coats rather than ski jackets as they are classics that will be timeless
- In winter, please bring warm jackets that you can take off while we are photographing. We want you to be warm and comfortable
- Please please think about your shoes. In winter, warm snow boots are essential as we will be moving around and it’s important that your feet stay warm and dry for a comfortable and fun experience
- Hats and scarves (for the outdoors) are always a fun accessory and can help to keep you warm in winter
- Try to avoid bright whites as they can blow out in the sun
- Please avoid strong patterns and logos
- Arms never seem to photograph well even if you’re a workout buff. I recommend that you try and avoid sleeveless tops
- Please avoid shorts. Blue and black jeans are always a great “go to”
- Boxy cropped tops aren't as flattering as tighter fitting clothes
- My studio is happy to now offer a styling package that includes a personal stylist, a make-up artist and a hair stylist. Putting together outfits from your closet that will flatter you the most in front of the camera can be daunting especially when coordinating with other family members. Please let us help you with the right colors for the right seasons. Together with hair styling and make-up you will look your absolute best and the portraits will be stunning. Please inquire for pricing.
