Hair, makeup, expression, pose, lighting and clothing all contribute to a successful portrait session.
Clothes that make you feel comfortable are important, colors that compliment your complexion are preferred. Colors complementary to the background can add interest to the final image.
We all have clothes we love, wear often and are comfortable in but they aren't always the pieces that look best in a portrait. New clothes are best, people notice old clothes and worn clothes can show their wear.
It’s good to discuss clothing choices with your photographer. When in doubt bring it to the shoot. Together you can compile a short list of items and if one doesn't work on camera, you can simply move on to your next choice.
I’ve purchased wardrobes for people to achieve the vision we have. The secret is to leave the tags on. 😊 Bella is too young to drive so we went shopping for her, and got some great pieces that looked great on her and great on camera.
Say Hi to Bella. She was a trooper in front of the camera, can you believe only days before she had a cast on her arm? Who doesn’t look like royalty in a Cinderella dress? Cosi bella.
