what do i wear?
my top tips for what to wear for any type of shoot:
wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great
dress as fancy or down to earth as you like, but i suggest comfy shoes for all the walking we may be doing!
clothes should be neatly pressed and should look new or like new
absolutely no logos or branding
a simple dark shirt/blouse/dress is often a good option
avoid white shirts unless you plan to wear it underneath something
solid colors are great
avoid busy patterns and large lines or stripes
no glitter, sparkles, rhinestones, sequins
go for a pop of color somewhere. bright red and vivid orange can look fantastic in moderation. a pop of red especially, looks great against the backdrops of the pacific northwest
wear layers and/or bring a change of shirts
turtlenecks are almost always a bad idea
couples & families:
try and wear complimentary colors - be mindful of what everyone else is wearing
don’t over match, be your individual selves
dress up or dress down, but please make it appear that you are all going to the same event
make up guidelines:
your make-up or hair-style should be exactly what you would do daily for job interview or party
wear a heavy layer of translucent powder (avoid mineral powders and foundations/concealers that contain spf and/or make up with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These make ups cause something called flashback and it makes you look like a vampire if use any subtle flash photography!). use concealer on blemishes as well if you want to hide them, but I do photoshop blemishes out if you want!
line lips before applying matte lipstick, then reline. don't overdo it.
avoid shimmers or products with lots of sparkle or shine
avoid frosts or garish colors
avoid over-styling. keep it simple
bring a hair brush, powder, and lipstick with you to refresh make up as we go
that’s it! looking forward to our shoot!!!
