Wear seasonal colors that you feel good wearing and work best for your skin tone and hair color. Fall color pallets include gorgeous warmer earthy shades, deep autumn berries and some jewel tones.
Build your outfits around one main color. Then select 1-2 complimentary or tonal colors that will tie them all together. The decision to color coordinate or match wardrobe colors always comes down to personal preference. The current trend in portrait photography is to color coordinate outfits. Either choice looks great in photos!
Avoid wearing all white or all black clothing, large amounts of these colors tend to look blown out or lack luster in photos.
Take a look at the fall portrait clothing color examples below, notice the pops of color among a neutral color pallet and also the contrast of different colors that work well and compliment each other. All look great!
2. Wear Comfortable Outfits (this is key!)
If you feel uncomfortable in your clothes, it will show in your facial expressions and posture...and in your portraits. Select garments that fit well you well and are not too tight or baggy. Go for classic looks. These pictures will be hanging on your walls for years to come. Wearing classic clothing looks will make your images feel timeless. Avoid wearing hats and bold graphic clothing as they can both be very distracting in photos.
Accessories add texture to photos. A simple belt, scarf or a layering piece like a cardigan sweater give your outfit a boost! Add some jewelry for extra pizzazz. Don't forget about your shoes, they will be showing in some pictures.
A little mascara and lipstick will enhance your facial features. Tinted moisturizers, foundations and blush help to smooth out skin tones and reduce redness. If you're prone to oily facial spots, consider applying a little powder before the session to reduce the shine. If you're not comfortable wearing makeup - don't wear it.
When in doubt, lay it out. Gather all of the outfits, accessories and shoes and lay them out on your bed. Take a picture with your phone so you can envision how they will look in your portraits. This step will give you a chance to add, change or omit clothing items as you see fit!

"If I had three words to describe Jennifer, they would be Talented, Professional and Thoughtful. Our experience with Jennifer was nothing short of outstanding and we were highly impressed by her commitment to make sure the right moment and expression were captured by the photograph. Every photo she produced for us had the highest quality. We ended up purchasing all of them along with a few canvas prints for our living room. What sets Jennifer apart from other photographers we've had in the past is her willingness to work with us post-session to make sure our selection of photos and canvas prints were the right ones for us. She made herself available numerous times to discuss details with us before we went ahead and made our purchases. I'd gladly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to hire a photographer." - Jose B., Charlestown, MA
