WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR SHOOT
FAMILY PORTRAIT OR ENGAGEMENT
Your clothing choices are a powerful means of self-expression. Opt for outfits that not only make you comfortable but also complement your hair, eye color, and skin tone. Embracing monochrome color schemes is a wise choice. You can find some color palettes available in this post for inspiration.
- Shirts can be colorful, monochrome or shades of a similar color. Tank tops are not recommended.
- Clothing comfortable enough to move, sit and walk around in, yet for fitting so clothes don’t look baggy.
- Please run a lint roller over clothing.
- Make sure clothing is not wrinkled.
- Outfits might get a little dirt on them if I ask you to sit. Shoes comfortable enough to walk to various locations in.
- Base foundation or concealer for ladies, it takes a long time for me to remove blemishes and soften out skin in the editing process.
- Moisture and softened lips. Chapped lips show up.
- Consider a manicure for fingernails and toenails, because they will show.
- Men could consider touching up the grey area in the beard if they appear.
- Clothing that contains texture such as patterns, stripes, and multiple colors.
- Logos, brands & characters.
- Wearing all white or all black. Consider grey and other colors to break things up. But stay within a monochrome theme.
- High heels. Consider the walk in between locations.
- Hats (create a shadow in the face). Flatten your hairstyle when taken off.
- Stiff Fabric. Consider how much a shirt creates creases and folds. Cotton fabric sits well.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PORTRAIT CLOTHING SUGGESTIONS
Tips on how to prepare for your photoshoot. When preparing for your photoshoot, the choice of clothing plays a crucial role in achieving the desired look and feel. Comfort is key, so it’s essential to select outfits that you feel at ease in. Here are some important clothing recommendations to consider:
- Variety of Clothing Options: It’s a great idea to bring a couple clothing options. Consider including items such as jeans, blouses, dresses, skirts, t-shirts, jackets, Letterman jackets, sports uniforms, and dress shirts in your wardrobe selection.
- Mix and Match: To add variety to your photos, aim to have a mix of outfits. Include one nice, more formal outfit, one that you wear frequently and feel comfortable in, and one that reflects your interests or hobbies. This approach allows for a diverse range of looks during your photoshoot.
- Clothing Maintenance: Ensure that your clothes are well-maintained. They should be clean, neatly pressed, and free of wrinkles. Running a lint roller over darker-colored clothing can help maintain a polished appearance.
- Ladies’ Makeup: For female participants, consider wearing a base foundation to even out your skin tone. Additionally, applying chapstick before the photoshoot can keep your lips looking smooth and moisturized.
- Manicured Nails and Toes: Whether you’re showcasing your hands or feet in the photos, having well-manicured nails and toes can enhance your overall appearance and add a touch of sophistication to your images.
- Footwear: Please wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in. You can change into your dress shoes before the shoot.
By following these clothing recommendations, you’ll be well-prepared for your photoshoot, ensuring that you look and feel your best in front of the camera. Remember that comfort and confidence are key to creating stunning, natural-looking photographs that truly capture your essence.
HEADSHOTS / MODELING CLOTHING SUGGESTIONS
To ensure your comfort during the photoshoot, it’s essential to select clothing that you feel at ease in. I recommend bringing a variety of options, typically 4 to 5 tops should suffice. Diversify your choices with shirts featuring different collars and necklines. Opt for solid colors, as they tend to look the best in photographs. Consider incorporating a mix of textures and shades to add depth to your outfits.
Think about building layers by including undershirts, T-shirts, collared shirts, sweaters, jackets, leather jackets, scarves, and similar items. Layering both light and dark-colored clothing can help create better contrast in your photos.
Prior to the photoshoot, ensure that your clothes are well-prepared by making sure they are clean and properly pressed. For darker-colored clothing, running a lint roller can be particularly useful.
Additionally, consider some grooming details such as having your nails and toes manicured, and using chapstick to keep your lips soft and smooth. When selecting your attire, choose colors and styles that complement your hair, skin tone, and eye color. It’s advisable to avoid exclusively black or white outfits to achieve more appealing and balanced results in your photos.
