What To Wear To A Photo Shoot: the simplicity of clothing choices

Clothing & Accessories

>Make sure all of your clothing is clean and wrinkle-free, including uniforms or gowns.

>Don’t mix a pattern with another pattern.

>Medium to dark shades create a timeless look.

>Avoid shirts with slogans, as photo cropping can cut words in half and it can be distracting.

>Long-sleeved shirts are best, since short sleeves can be distracting and sleeveless tops can look too casual.

>Avoid large accessories that may detract from your face. Keep the focus on you with small accessories, such as simple earrings and necklaces.

>Make sure your shoes and socks match your outfit, as they may show in some poses.

Grooming Tips

>Avoid getting a new hairstyle or cut right before your session.
Instead, select a comfortable style you know looks good.

>Limit exposure to the sun a few days before picture day.

>For guys, be sure to shave the night before.

>For girls, bring concealer to help hide blemishes, and then stop worrying!

>Making sure nails are trimmed and clean as hands may show in portrait. Girls may want to do their nails. Clear or neutral colors work best.

>Check your hair and shirt collar at camera time.

>Practice your smile.

>Remember good posture.

>Wear your best colors.


>Wear your favorite outfit. It will make you feel comfortable.
