Styling Your Holiday Session
Scroll Down for Curated Styling Choices
No pressure... but choosing outfits for your shoot IS the most important thing you have to do for your session, outside of booking it. Your wardrobe sets the tone for your images, be it formal or comfy cozy or anywhere in between.
Just keep this in mind...when looking back at your session you want to see your family not an outfit.
There are so many clothes that are ADORABLE for everyday, but a picture perfect outfit does not overpower the subjects.
As always, I recommend keeping colors light and neutral. Use patterns, but use them sparingly. If you want a pop of red, opt for cranberry or burgundy. Choose greens with blue undertones like sage and eucalyptus. Winter is the perfect time to incorporate my favorite styling tip...layers! Cable knit tights and booties for girls, a plaid button-up under a soft sweater for Dad, suspenders for little boys and a sweet hat for baby.
For our indoor sessions I use the same principles...except kick off the shoes. I love babies' and kids' little toes. Stick to wardrobe pieces that look and feel comfortable for your child. And just because we are inside doesn't mean layers won't work. I love knit hats and chunky scarves with pajamas and chef hats and aprons with our cooking minis.
Remember I have a client closet you are welcome to use, with a holiday collection that only comes out this time of year. Im working on getting everything photographed, but feel free to message me and see what I have in your size.
Below is a curated shopping list to get you started and help you visualize the way the neutrals with textures and small patterns work together.
Ideas for your outdoor session
at E MC B, your house or the mountain view.
Ideas for your studio session.
My recommendations for the bed or the cooking sessions will be similar to my normal recommendations. Keep the colors muted, patterns sparingly and layer if possible. A soft knit hat with pjs or an apron and chef hat in the "kitchen".
Remember you are welcome to use anything from my client closet. Get in touch to find out what I have in your child/ren's size. I have a pretty big collection of Burts Bees pjs, variety of hats and 2 matching aprons from Hearth & Hand.
