Below I put together a few tips when trying to choose clothing for your senior portrait session.

Select clothing you like and bring some options.  If patterns are being worn, make sure they do not conflict or draw too much attention. Graphics and fluorescent colors are also not a great choice. Graphics tend to go out of style and can distract and fluorescent colors can draw too much attention and reflect into your face.

Although I mentioned what not to wear, I also feel like it’s important not to focus too hard on clothing. Wear something comfortable, something that you like and feel is flattering. Be yourself! If you tend to wear a lot of jeans, then wear jeans! There are no rules about dressing up. Not to say that you can’t dress up. Just be somewhat comfortable so you can enjoy the shoot.

Don’t forget about shoes or accessories. Make sure shoes are in decent condition, not super worn. Accessories can add a bit more color, which can be very appealing as long as it’s not really distracting. Hats can be great as well, if you enjoy wearing them.

Bring a few different outfits. I have a popup tent, so there’s no concern about trying to find a place to change your clothes.
