Confused about what to wear for your photography session? | Santa Clarita Photographer

I frequently have clients ask me what they should wear for their photography session. The first question to ask yourself is, what style of portraits am I looking for? Casual or formal? Subdued and earthy or bright and funky? Classic or edgy? You get the picture!

Once you have your style in mind, I have a few tips to send you in the right direction. All of these tips can also be found on the Cristen Farrell Photography website here:

  • Clothing should be geared toward drawing attention to the face, not away from it, although a splash of color or pattern on an accessory (hat, scarf, etc.) will help to show personaility and add interest, but not in an overpowering way.
  • It is best to avoid logos, decals, and stripes.
  • For families, clothing should be complimentary, but MATCHING is not recommended. Try choosing one pattern or color and mixing it in to everyone’s wardrobe in a different and muted way.
  • Feel free to bring up to two additional changes of clothes, especially for children, for a variety of fun shots. (For adults, please note that I cannot guarantee a changing facility, so please plan accordingly.)

Here’s a great example for a family of 4:
