What to Wear ~ Spring Photo Session Outfits // Studio 29 Photography

May 2, 2014

Spring is here and sessions are booking up! Now, the forever-pending question… What should I wear to my spring photo-session?? 
Here are some tips and color-combo suggestions to help you choose the perfect outfit for you Spring Studio 29 Photography session!
I always recommend choosing outfits that are a reflection of your personality.  I also recommend choosing one casual/fun outfit and then one date night/dressier outfit.
I also would suggest avoiding oversized clothing, logos, graphic t shirts, and a cluster of patterns. Minimal distractions from clothing will help keep the focus on you!
And lastly and most importantly, always choose clothing that YOU feel comfortable in!

Violet Tulip + Placid Blue
Casual and beachy! The combination of Violet Tulip and Placid Blue look stunning together. Calm, quiet, and breezy, these cool colors are perfect set against warm tone backgrounds such as sand, wood, and sunsets. Wonderful for all skin tones and hair colors.
Paloma Grey + Freesia Yellow + Celosia Orange
These hues combine to make a bold statement sure to make everyone crave icy lemonade. This citrus inspired summer look will make for dazzling portraits that pop ever in the brightest of sunlight. The large amount of grey in each outfit keeps the orange and yellow tones from being too overwhelming.
Radiant Orchid + Violet Tulip
Two shades of purple and violet blend beautifully without creating too much of a “matched” look between the photo subjects. Don’t be afraid to get creative with rich, strong hues, as long as you have plenty of white and neutrals to balance it out! This purple perfection is a wonderful look for urban environments and floral settings.
Hot Hot Hot! Cayenne a color nearly as dizzying as the summer heat! This rich red hue is not for the faint of heart, stealing the attention wherever you go and adding an explosive pop of color to your images. Recommended for urban environments, set against neutral palettes of stone, metal, and industrial areas. Cayenne is also a great accent color for photo-shoots taken at carnivals, amusement parks, and boardwalks.
Hemlock Green + Paloma Grey
The subtle tones of Hemlock Green and Paloma Grey intermingle in these dapper vintage-inspired outfits. A perfect fit for classy white beaches, cute main street downtown areas, outdoor cafes, and farmer’s markets. Accessorize with whites and creams to complete the look. A nostalgic color combination that blends softly with the surrounding area.
Dazzling Blue + Freesia Yellow
The unbeatable combination of Dazzling Blue and Freesia Yellow is bright, cheerful, and fantastically photogenic. Let strong blue tones constitute the majority of the outfits while accessorizing with deliciously cheerful pops of yellow. A perfect look for almost any setting. Your photos will be colorful, summery, and bold!
 Sand + Placid Blue + Hemlock Green
Create a look of serenity and unity by combining Sand, Placid Blue, and Hemlock Green. These colors will really shine during golden hour lighting, and look fantastic on just about anyone. Simple, casual pieces create an outfit that’s easy to put together and looks great in front of the lens. Try keeping the lines in your clothing as simple as possible to make your faces the star of the show!
Celosia Orange + Placid Blue
Celosia Orange and Placid Blue combine for a colorful, casual appeal. With a single article of clothing sporting one of these strong hues, little more is needed to complete the outfit. A long skirt for the ladies and a breezy button up for the guys is comfortable and flattering, helping you relax into your best looks for the camera.
