Portrait Photography – What to wear

Portrait photography isn’t exclusive to families, I see groups of friends, clubs & associations, couples and individuals. On each occasion I am asked “What should we wear?” I usually advise clients to wear clothes which co-ordinate, no big brand names as this can often date, but most importantly keep it comfortable and well fitted – there is nothing more distracting that someone fiddling with tight buttons or sleeves too long, or just plain un-happy because they are wearing an outfit they dislike (mums take note!).

When photographing my own children, my personal choice of clothes is something from Boden or Vertbaudet both companies offer a wide range of bright, stylish and easy to wear children’s clothing.  I completely appreciate this wont be everyone’s preferred choice, so I have found this selection of images from the internet (pinterest is a great source fro ideas) which provide a good range of style and colour and may offer some inspiration.
