What you choose to wear should be something you feel comfortable in, something that compliments your physical features, your individuality, something you can move in, and something that makes you feel amazing.
I also recommend scheduling the make up trials on the same day as the shoot – sometimes this alone will help you feel more ready to be photographed. My favorite looks are always a bold lip, simple eye make up with dark lashes, so feel free to give your lashes, brows, and eye make up a little extra attention before the session.
I don’t have a preference on this and I tend to not do ring shots at sessions, but here’s a reminder to consider your nails before the session if you’re wearing open toed shoes or prefer having your nails done! For some people, doing that little bit extra that will make you feel confident, and, (sorry for repetition, but) confidence is king.
Lastly, rules were meant to be broken. I wear mismatched socks, mix god awful patterns, wear socks with sandal shoes, and secretly love when my boyfriend and I are wearing nearly matching outfits because that’s who I am and I get it. You should trust your personal style and I know I’ll love what you choose, however! I do encourage bringing along an extra outfit or two for each of you in case one gets dirty, if we have time to change during the session, or if you’d just like a second opinion before we start the session!
If you have any questions as you’re planning for your session, please don’t hesitate to ask!
