What to wear for your photo session

by Kris Phillips

There are a lot of varying opinions on the best way to dress for a photo shoot. And of course there are exceptions to every rule. I recommend checking yourself out in a full length mirror both standing and sitting to make sure you love how you look in your picture day outfit.

  • Wear solid colors, bright or dark is up to you.
    • If you have a light colored pet, consider a darker color
    • If you have a dark colored dog, think about lighter/brighter colors.
  • Wear an outfit that fits comfortably.
  • Clothing that’s too big or to tight will add weight that doesn’t exist.
  • Wear something you don’t mind getting muddy paws & dog hair on.
  • Make sure you feel good sitting as well as standing.
    • Dogs are short, even the big ones, so in order to be in the same frame you’ll have to get down to their level.
  • If you wear a dress make sure your comfortable with where it falls when you sit.
  • Style your hair and jewelry to match the look of your outfit.
    • If you dress casual wear jewelry you’d wear every day.
    • If you want to dress up, don’t forget to leave time to perfect your makeup and style your hair in the morning.
  • Couples & families should dress in coordinating outfits.
    • You don’t have to match exactly, but you can.
    • Try to keep to the same family of colors-jewel tones, or earth tones, etc.
  • IF your nervous about certain areas, just cover them up.
    • Worried about your upper arms? Wear long sleeves.
    • Not fond of your calves or thighs? Long pants in a dark color might be your best bet.
  • Don’t forget about your shoes!
    • They should go with the style of your outfit.
    • Be relatively comfortable for walking.
    • If you have a big dog who likes to pull, make sure your shoes are stable.
    • And if you don’t like them, you can always take them off :)
    • Wearing open toes? Don’t forget that pedicure.

But most of all wear something that makes you FEEL great! Self-confidence shines from the inside out and the better you feel about how you look, the better you’ll look in your photos.
