What to wear to your family or engagement session

Clothing is so important in making a great image! I love colors and layers. I recommend wearing layers as much as possible to add texture and interest to the picture. Chunky sweaters, clothing with lace, ruffles, buttons or knit texture. Accessorizing is the key! Bring out your funky boots, red heels or lace tights, chunky jewelry, hats, mittens, scarves, ect. I always tell people to dress like yourself...a more colorful and accessorized version of yourself. Hair and makeup is also important. Glamour makeup looks great on camera.  Eyelashes are key to maternity and boudoir sessions! I do have a makeup artist that can be available for an additional cost for any type of session. Please let me know ahead of time so I can make sure she is available.

For a family session I recommend picking a few different colors and sticking to them for the entire family. The key is to coordinate but not look like clones. Remember that layers look great on camera. Here is a link to a pinterest account I created to give you an idea of how to dress the family session. http://pinterest.com/brianalugo/family-portraits-clothing/

 

What to bring to a baby studio session or cake smash session

For newborn sessions I have all of the cute little hats and pant sets here. I also have all of the backdrops and cute little buckets here as well. Just bring baby

For older babies bring a few different outfits and we will decide what works best.     Sometimes just a cute little hat and diaper cover look adorable in pictures. For boys bow ties and vests are really cute. I do have lot's of boys hats, ties and other props here to choose from but feel free to bring along any additional accessories. For baby girls I have lots of leggies, lace rompers, pearls, hats and headbands but also feel free to bring along anything that you think would work well for pictures.
