How do I get started?
You've booked your session and now you're thinking...what do I wear?!?!
Take a few minutes to check out my What to Wear Guide!
Here are some helpful tips to get you started:
1. What is your style?
You want to choose clothes for you and/or your family that makes you, YOU! I want you to feel fabulous and comfortable. Think about what you like to wear. Is it classy, traditional, casual, or even a little bit of sparkle!
2. You want to compliment each other NOT match!
For my family sessions, you want to compliment each other but not be identical to each other. Choose a few colors that compliment each other and then mix and coordinate outfits to fit together.
Don't be afraid to mix patterns such as florals with strips!
3. Layers, layers, layers!
This can work for both warm and cool weather! Adding a vest, jacket, sweater, or even a shirt over your top can add a little extra pop with your outfit. You can mix and match colors or even patterns with layers.
Does everyone need to be in layers? No but if 1 or 2 of your family members are in layers, this will help with complimenting each other versus just matching. For my senior sessions, this can be applied as well. Adding that adorable cropped jacket, letterman jacket, or even a long sweater.
4. Accessories make the details!
This isn't just for the ladies! Promise.
Yes, jewelry can pull an outfit together BUT also your shoes can too! This applies to EVERYONE in your family. It sounds silly but make sure each person in your family has shoes that fit their outfit. The little details matter. Make sure to think about jewelry, shoes, and belts! Does your child always wear a hat? Yes? Then bring it!

Where do I find the latest styles and inspiration?
I've included photos of some of my amazing clients and how they put together outfits for their family! You'll see different options for families, children, and senior sessions through out this blog post. As well, I created a Pinterest board for you!! Yep, it is super easy to hop over and check it out. As well there are other boards available to help with you with accessories, make-up, and senior sessions.
As the styles change, I'll be adding new pins to my boards, so it is always up to date.
What about inspiration? Current styles?
Social media makes it so easy for us! Yes Pinterest is super helpful but I also suggest using Facebook and Instagram as well. Follow your favorite fashion blogs and clothing stores you love.
They always post current styles for every season.
Where should I shop?
These are great stores to follow on Instagram because it allows you to visualize certain outfits and styles.
One of my favorite online women's boutique is Dottie Couture!
I'm also a huge fan of Marshalls, Target, and H&M for my kiddos.
What about my hair, make-up, and jewelry?
My senior girls told me their MUST have make-up items in their purse:
4. Matte Lipstick
