What shall I wear to my shoot?

What shall I wear to my shoot?

This a question I hear often and my answer varies with the session. I will consider where you are having your shoot and what colours are likely to be in your backdrop. In Autumn you can get away with deep dark red’s to suit the warmth in the trees whereas in April/ May light soft pastels work really well with the light bright pallet we see in Spring. If your shoot is at home we will discuss the room(s) that you are thinking of using so I can best advise you. Below is a guide to the seasons and my recommendations for the best colours to wear.
