Most people think that for a professional photo shoot, you have to go out and buy identical outfits. But that’s the WORST thing you can do! I put together a guide that will assist you with matching clothing for your shoot. It’s only there to inspire you to come up with your own ideas. Think paint color pallets. Shades d on’t have to be exact, but in the same family. Choose complimentary colors. Don’t forget accessories to pull it all together – like scarves, hats and jewelry that pull out subtle colors. Have fun and be creative! I’d be happy to discuss options over the phone prior to your session if you would like.
