What to Wear

We ask that you pick 4 of the following categories and bring an outfit in that style.

  • Casual
  • Business casual
  • Sporty
  • Dressy
  • Lingerie/swimwear
  • Vintage/cosplay

Please bring what you think looks good on you, and what you are comfortable wearing.

Clothing can easily date your pictures so keep this in mind. For that reason, we often suggest simple clothing with a timeless cut and style. Jeans can be timeless and casual. Darker clothing recedes in the image and can appear slimming. Bold patterns and bright colors can detract from a portrait, but if it’s your style you may want to consider pairing bold patterns with solids.

Comfort Counts

Choose the clothing you love to wear, and that accentuates your individual personality. Consider that you might be sitting or leaning in different poses. You want to wear something that you feel very comfortable in and that will cover any areas you do not want to show in the images.

Not Sure What to Wear During your Photo Shoot?

Here are a few tips to help you look your best!


Coordinate your shoes with the style of your overall look: formal-casual and that they match your chosen color palette. You can shoot barefoot if you prefer.


Make sure your nails are camera-ready.


Sunglasses, jewelry, scarves, hats, bows, bow ties… can all add a little ‘fun’ to your timeless style. Accessories are also a great way to coordinate looks, and props can help express your unique personality.


Layers provide more visual interest and will also allow more variety in your shots and poses. Layering also lets you easily and quickly vary your look. simply add a sweater, jacket or hat and you have an entirely different look.


You can bring some extra clothing options just in case. A brush, hair spray, lipstick, eyeliner, and eye shadow, and powder are always great for last-minute touch-ups.


We have a set of backgrounds we typically use in a variety of colors and styles. For the best pictures possible, please choose your outfits with these in mind. The first background (gray) is used for the video.
