This is probably the MOST frequently asked question of my clients. What. On earth. Do I wear??? It can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you are Mom and trying to coordinate your crew. You find yourself wondering “What color scheme should I pick?”, “What accessories do I pick?”, “What shoes do I wear?”, etc.
A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a great blog by a spunky, fun gal name Annie, called Paint the Moon. Annie is a multi-talented mom of three who has quite the schedule as a photographer, blogger and PhotoShop action extraordinaire. One of the first articles I read on her blog was titled “What to Wear” and oh man, it’s perfect. I have (in previous blogs) written about this very topic – but Annie found a way to explain it in terms that make it super easy, along with great photographic examples. In her blog, she says:
Coordinate but don’t match. When styling a photo session, I like to start out with a basic color palette and go from there. It can help to have one “rock star” in the photos who carries a pattern in their outfit that the rest of the group’s clothing or accessories pulls from…
If you want to read the entire article (which I highly recommend…) her is the link to Annie’s post:
