When you schedule a session with My Blue Sky Photography, you will receive a Portrait Session Planner with lots of information and tips about clothing choices and how to prepare for your session. Here are some general guidelines when choosing clothing for portrait sessions:
For Children: I recommend simple, bright clothing for portraits. Solid colors work really well, especially near the face, but large, playful, bright prints on young children can be fun as well. I also love vintage styles. Small prints and emblems on shirts should be avoided. If conditions permit, bare feet look wonderful in most portraits.
For Siblings and Families: The goal should be to coordinate, but not necessarily match. A good rule of thumb is two colors and one neutral. It works very well when one child wears a pattern on a dress or pair of shorts, and the other family members wear coordinating solid colors.
Accessories are our friends! They add personality, a pop of color, or simply a change of looks in the few seconds it takes to throw one on. Changing up scarves, jewelry, or hats during a session is encouraged!
