At our mini sessions, we want you to look and feel your best! Here are some tips to help you put together the perfect outfit(s) for your session:
Coordinate, But Don’t Match
For a stylized mini session with multiple people, aim for coordinated outfits rather than matching. Avoid everyone wearing identical outfits. Choose complementary colors and styles that showcase your unique personalities. However, if you’re booking a mini session on your own for a portrait or headshot session, this tip will not apply to you.
Choose Colors and Create Layers
Select 2-4 colors to guide your outfit choices. With fewer colors, it’s easier to create a cohesive and visually pleasing look for everyone involved in the session. On the other hand, coordinating outfits with a larger range of colors can be more challenging and may require careful consideration to ensure a harmonious overall appearance. Consider your seasonal color analysis to find your most flattering colors. This can provide guidance on which colors enhance your natural features and make you shine in your photos.
Consider Professional Hair & Makeup
Investing in professional hair and makeup services can enhance your confidence and ensure you look your absolute best in the photos. Our experienced team can recommend talented professionals who specialize in creating stunning looks tailored to your preferences and the session’s requirements.
Bring Touch-Up Essentials
Pack a small bag with any essential you may need such as a mirror, makeup, hair spray, comb or hairbrush, hair ties, and bobby pins for quick touch-ups during the session. These items may come in handy for any necessary adjustments or freshening up.
Add a personal touch and elevate your outfit with carefully chosen accessories. Consider jewelry, hats, scarves, sunglasses, glasses, and watches that reflect your style and enhance your overall look. Opt for accessories that complement your outfit without overpowering it or drawing attention away from your face.
Dress for the Occasion
Consider the theme or purpose of the mini session when planning your outfit. If it’s a family session, opt for outfits that convey a sense of togetherness and unity. If it’s a corporate headshot session, choose attire that aligns with your professional brand and industry.
Avoid Trendy Fads
Opt for timeless, classic looks that will stand the test of time. Avoid overly trendy pieces that may quickly go out of style. Focus on selecting outfits that make you feel confident and represent your authentic self, rather than following fleeting fashion trends.
Dress for Your Body
When selecting your outfit for the mini session, it’s important to choose clothing that flatters your body type and highlights your best features. Consider the cuts, styles, and silhouettes that enhance your natural shape. By opting for clothing that is tailored to your body type, you can accentuate your curves, create a more balanced appearance, and highlight the areas you feel most confident about.
Avoid Loud Patterns and Graphics
When preparing for your mini session, it’s best to avoid wearing clothing with loud patterns or graphics that could divert attention away from your face and the main focus of the photos. Instead, opt for outfits with more subtle patterns or solid colors that complement your natural features and allow them to take center stage. By choosing attire that doesn’t overpower your appearance, you can ensure that your unique personality and expressions shine through in the photographs, creating captivating and impactful images.
Remember, the goal is to choose outfits that make you feel confident, comfortable, and reflect your personal style. If you have any specific questions or need further guidance, our team is here to help. (Check out the Mini Session FAQ’s if you haven’t already!)
