Nadika Photography | What to wear for photo sessions

Tips and recommendations what to  wear for photo sessions.


  These advices for helping clients make good choices.


  • Keep clothing simple. Try to choose solid colors for your photo session.


  • Darker clothing slims. Choose shades of black, brown, blue, dark green and other jewel-toned colors.


  • Keep clothing consistent. Dress everyone in the same style. Don't mix casual and formal clothing in photos.


  • Choose muted tones that are a bit subdued.


  • Choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy – all dark jewel tones.  Or tan, a lighter olive green, and denims – all lighter, softer tones.


  • Choose a top with sleeves at least to the elbow.


  • Keep jewelry simple and minimalistic.



   Skin Type

Consider how the color of your outfit matches your skin tone.


•People with very fair skin should avoid wearing bright white as it may make them appear washed out in the photograph.

•Those with very dark skin should avoid wearing light colors, such as pale yellow or lavender, as the contrast in colors will appear distracting in a group shot.

•Regardless of your skin type, you should not wear extremely bright colors. Neon colored clothing is not recommended for family portraits.

•Outfits featuring bright shades of red and purple, or those made of reflective material are best left at home on the day of your photo shoot.



Stay Comfortable and Relaxed


  No matter what you choose to wear for your family portrait, make sure everyone feels comfortable and relaxed in their clothes. This will lead to beautiful smiles and natural poses, and you'll end up with a gorgeous family photo you'll love displaying for many years to come.
