A change of outfits gives some variety to a shoot and we welcome outfit changes. However, since it takes away time from the session, please be aware there will be less photos. Outfits are so fun to plan, but there is so many choices, it can make your head spin.


{First and foremost, make sure the outfits everyone is wearing are comfortable. Otherwise, some faces might not look so happy in the photos, and SMILES are just as important as pretty outfits.}


{Choose 2-3 (maybe even more) colors to work with. Try not to do too matchy-matchy where everyone wears the same top and bottom. You can always Pinterest or Google some ideas for more inspiration.}


{Play with patterns! They add depth to the photos.}


{Accessorize! Add in scarves, hats, jewelry, ties, colorful shoes, etc  to make it more fun!}


My favorite place for outfit inspiration is PINTEREST!
