Hey there, wild ones!

I’m so excited to share some tips on how to style for your upcoming photoshoot. Whether you’re prepping for a family session, a couple’s shoot, or just want to capture some beautiful moments, the key is to keep it fun, natural, and true to you. Let’s dive in!

Consider Your Location

First things first, think about where your photoshoot will take place. The environment can greatly influence your outfit choices. If you’re shooting on the beach, soft blues, whites, and sandy neutrals will look fantastic. In a lush green park? Earthy tones like olive, mustard, and burgundy will pop beautifully against the backdrop. Photos always look amazing when the colors you wear complement the location.

Light Makeup for a Natural Glow

When it comes to makeup, less is often more. You don’t need to look like a performer on stage! Stick to what you usually do, and you’ll feel more comfortable and authentic. A bit of foundation, some mascara, and a touch of blush can go a long way. If you want to feel extra special, consider hiring a professional makeup artist who can enhance your natural beauty without going overboard.

Hair Tips

Let’s talk hair! Soft curls are always a win, and for the kids, make sure their hair is neat and brushed. For the ladies, adding a hat or a headband can be a cute touch, especially in windy outdoor settings. Just remember, you want to feel like yourself, so keep it simple and comfortable. In saying this, your hair might get taken in the wind, or wet at the beach – this can add so much to the photographs!

Outfits That Flow

If you’re looking for movement in your photos (and who isn’t?), flowy dresses are a must for women. Stores like Mamma Rentals and Everything Lace Hire have beautiful options that will add a dreamy touch to your photos. These dresses create stunning movement and look amazing in the golden hour light. Plus, they’re super comfortable! In saying this, I LOVE a pair of pants, whatever is most you, go with that.

For dads and kids, coordinating outfits without matching is the way to go. Think complementary colors and textures. Beige chinos, soft knit sweaters, and casual button-ups can look great on the guys. And for the kiddos, cute dresses, little rompers, or simple jeans and a nice top will do the trick.

Footwear Matters

Don’t forget about your feet! In summer, sandals or going barefoot can look fantastic. In cooler weather, think about boots or stylish sneakers.

Final Thoughts

Remember, the best photos come from feeling comfortable and confident. So choose outfits that make you feel good and reflect your personality. Think about the location, keep your makeup light and natural, and go for those flowy dresses to add some beautiful movement to your shots.
