Seniors – What to Wear

What to wear? What to wear?


The most frequently asked question is “What should I wear for a photo session?” Here are some helpful wardrobe tips for a successful portrait experience.

The simple answer is: wear what makes you feel like you look really good and yet like yourself.

When it comes to what to wear for portraits you can play it safe and wear something timeless and classic. Do the formal, well groomed look or go bold, stylish and make a statement. It’s your choice. It’s all about you.

For the classic timeless approach, simple clothing is best. Solid colored clothing in middle to dark tones work very well. They give the illusion of timelessness of the image. Shy away from stripes, or busy patterns that could date the image years from now – instead think about blending textures to achieve the most natural look, casual dress is usually preferred.

For a formal, well groomed look, dress attire is appropriate.

Are you outgoing and bold? Break all the rules! Wear that wild shirt or dye your hair purple. We’ll choose different backgrounds or locations for those clothes.

We typically advise clients to avoid clothes with writing on them. Try to avoid big logos like “Abercrombie” or “Old Navy” across your chest.

We encourage you to bring lots of clothing for mixing and matching outfits.

Get creative!

Bring hats, cool shoes, boots, jackets, jewelry, scarves-you name it!

Not sure if something is going to work? Bring it with you and let us decide.

Don’t forget… If you have any questions, we are here to help you with your decision making.

See you in the funny pages!
