What To Wear|Photography Style

So, it seems lately that I have been getting alot of questions like... What should I wear for my photo shoot? What colors look best in a photograph? Should I even wear bright colors?... Etc. I am by no means a final authority on fashion, but I thought I would put together a few outfit ideas for my blog readers... With a few simple choices you can really make your family (engagement, senior, or whatever) pictures POP!
Primary Colors
1. My first tip would definitely be color, color, color.... Especially PRIMARY colors. These colors seem to add a fun vibe to your images, and can really make a photograph come alive... If you are going for a more casual but exciting feel to your photos then you'll definitely want to incorporate these colors!
 2. If the primary colors are a bit bold and in your face for you, and you prefer something a little more sophisticated, then choose a solid staple color (such as navy, black, or gray) and pair it with an accent color. The accent color can be a bright primary shade or it can be more towards the pastel family. In this particular ensemble I chose a navy staple color with a pretty pale pink accent.This type of color combo can give you a soft and almost dreamy look to your photos... 
3.When it comes to family photos most people are concerned about matching perfectly... You can definitely go with perfectly coordinated outfits, but in my opinion, you want to complement each other not look exactly identical. The best way to do this is to choose a color scheme. Maybe find a printed piece of clothing (such as the little girl's dress above) and build off of that color scheme. Don't worry if something doesn't match perfectly. As long as it's in the same color family you're good to go...
