What to wear at a photoshoot

Since I know for many people this can be nearly as much of a challenge as finding the right photographer (something that's extremely important more on that later in another blog post), I wanted to offer some tips on what to wear for photoshoot
 
Plan in advance
 
This one speaks for itself, the more time you give yourself to choose what you would like everyone to wear at the shoot, the more relaxed you will feel. Waiting until the nightt before the shoot is bound to make you feel panicked and a little stressed. What if something you picked out is too small/big, you can’t find the right shoes or your four year old refuses yto play ball with the outfit you chose for them. Just give yourself time. Additionally: options never hurt.
 
Keep your location in mind
 
Are you going to be on the beach? Surrounded by beautiful foliage? Sometimes you can choose what you are wearing to accent the chosen location. Spring colours – deep reds, oranges and greens look lovely at this time of year, while a softer palette suit the coastal locations more.
 
Comfort is important 
 
We have all seen kids in styled in hats, boots, tutus, and jackets. They look cute but if those kids aren’t comfortable in them you are in for one miserable photo shoot. Make sure to keep everyone’s comfort in mind when choosing outfits. A tutu may seem like a great idea, but if you choose a windy November day and an outside location your girl may be freezing, so have a backup plan in mind.
 
Reduce loud patterns
 
A little bit of texture or pattern can be a good thing in photographs but if there are lots patterns in a photo, it can be distracting when your looking at them and I'm sure that's not what you want.
 
The main thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy the experience 😃
