Here are just a few images of what NOT to wear. As you can tell... these shirts are very busy with patterns and colors... it takes away the attention from the face. Patterns such as these are also not timeless.
WHAT NOT TO WEAR….
Don't assume that if it's trendy, it will look good in a photo. Wild patterns and fluorescent colors are NOT a good choice.
I know a LOT of you bring bold striped shirts to sessions because in real life it is cool. In photos it is just very very (did I say very?) distracting. It can be appropriate by water for a nautical look but bring smaller softer stripes.
Girls… avoid very short skirts and shorts. You will be very limited in your poses.
Girls… if you are "blessed", wear appropriate necklines.
IRON your clothes! Don't come to your session and pull them out of a backpack. Wrinkles show in photos.
Wear clothes that flatter your figure. Flowy tops and dresses are adorable but do nothing to give you shape and may make you look larger than you are. (who wants that?)
