5 Fashion Tips for Women's' Casual Portrait Photos

One of the most common questions we get from our female photography clients is about what they should wear. Our answer is always to tap into their personal style, to feel comfortable in their clothing, and to not be afraid to get a little playful. Everyone’s outfit is going to be different, and that’s exactly the point. Still, if you’re looking for a bit more guidance, the following advice may help.

Opt for Solids Whenever Possible

We often recommend wearing solid blocks of color since they photograph really well and don't distract the eye from your face when looking at the photo.

Play Up Your Accessories

Now’s your chance really have some fun with your style and play up your outfit with fun accessories. Think hats, belts, jewelry, and layers.

Stick to the Season

This one’s kind of a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised! Throw on cozy cardigans and knee-high boots for fall, off-the-shoulder tops and rompers for summer, coats and scarves for winter, you get the idea.

Wear Shoes that Make Sense

If we’re going to be somewhere earthy, like the ever-popular Lithia Park, opt for flats, boots, or something that blends into the scene. High heels generally don’t mix well with soil. Remember, the goal is to be comfortable, stylish, and still yourself.

Make Sure You’re Comfortable

On that note, we’ll be sitting, standing, and posing for a couple hours, so make sure that whatever you wear you feel comfortable moving around in. This can make a huge difference in how the shoot goes and how the images turn out!

Make sure to get in touch with us to book your couples photoshoot or individual portrait session, and we'll be happy to offer even more fashion tips based on your specific photos!
