The trees are slowly starting to redress and colours are being found amongst the uncut grass of winter. I am very much ready to get back to my outdoor sessions after a 4 month hibernation period. If you are yet to book your outdoor family session please take a look at the packages available by CLICKING HERE
If you are already booked in here are some tips on what to wear…
“Tip- Click on any outfit to be taken to the website where you can purchase it 🙂 “
Please, please do not wear matching outfits. Gone are the days of everyone wearing jeans with white t-shirts, it just does not look good. Co-ordinate your outfits rather than match them. Think of the colours that would work well together. Earthy tones always work well like reds, browns, mustard, creams and greys. So do pastels and neutrals. My favourite colour combinations at the moment are rusts, ochres and creams and whites or pale blue, lilacs and grey. Compliment each others outfit. Patterns look great in these sessions as long as everyone is not all wearing the same pattern. Stay away from stripes! There is a great fashion trend set for this year with a beautiful scarf print…
Layers look great in all kind of sessions. Think of accessories such as scarves, hats and bracelets. Make sure your shoes are practical for the location of the session but also ensure they work with the rest of your outfit. You may want to bring some shoes to walk to the location in then change for the actually session when we are in the right place. Keep make up and hair clean and natural, keep away from heavy eye make up. Knitwear can really be good for adding texture to your images. Floaty dresses and long skirts are my favourite as they can be swished to add movement in a portrait!

Men can often be less cooperative than the kids when preparing for a photo session lol. Make sure you do lots of bribing! Same rules apply as above with regards to colours and patterns. No logos or sportswear to be worn. Including baseball caps! No running trainers either. Boots, brogues or converse like trainers are acceptable 😉

Stay away from character outfits and sportswear. Knitwear, denim, midlength dresses. Pastels are great for spring/summer. Most of all make sure they are comfortable in what they are wearing. If they feel uncomfortable it will show in their images.
