What type of clothing should we wear?
Creating a perfect portrait takes a little planning. Fine portraiture captures facial expressions and mood. Clothing,
accessories, and props are secondary and shouldn’t be distracting.
* Avoid using busy patterns and bright colors.
* Light colors are best with light backgrounds and fair complexions.
* Darker colors are best with deep backgrounds and dark hair or complexions.
* Everyone should be dressed in coordinating colors, i.e. khaki pants and white shirts; black tops and blue jeans.
* Everyone’s shoes and socks should match and dark colors are best.
* Keep necklines simple.
