A reoccurring question I get asked is “what should we wear?” Your clothing choices are a very important part of your final image! Here are a few simple tips for selecting the best outfits.

Be sure to select clothes the fit you and your personal style. You want to feel confident and comfortable so stick to items you know will give you that freedom.

We think it’s best for Mom to choose her dress or outfit first. Then start piecing in Dad and the kids’ outfits mixing colors the stick with the same palette. Everyone should have  their own style come out in their outfit. Instead of matching your children in the same outfit, you could have one daughter wear a dress while the other wears a skirt and floppy hat.

Big floppy hats are such a fun staple for the beach for Mom or daughter. And this is the perfect time to wear a beautiful statement necklace or bracelets! Little boys look super cute in bow ties or suspenders! And Dads, don’t forget your belt and watch.

Picking colors that go well with the beach background will give you timeless photos that look amazing. Stay away from busy patterns, bright bold colors as well as the latest trend. Women look best in long flows dresses and men look best in well fitting shorts/pants with a light-solid color shirt. Light pastel colors such as pinks, blues, greens, tans, creams and whites are best.

Here are some examples of WHAT TO WEAR vs WHAT NOT TO WEAR as well as links to some of my client’s favorite places to shop.
