Create a vision of what you desire to be on your wall. I will help you bring that vision to life.
One of the first things that you’ll want to do is consider the time of year. Look at colors for the season. Consider the location that we are using … is it in a wooded area ? the beach ? in town ? This will give you a good idea of what color palette to use.
What colors do you recommend that clients avoid ?
Typically, the colors best avoided are bright neon colors, especially around the face. A lot of the images that you will see in my portfolio are shot at my home on the surrounding property. At this location, I prefer colors to have a muted tone and I don’t recommend primary colors.
Is it ok to mix patterns or should they be avoided ?
Some of the best shots combine contrasting elements: bright and pastel, dark and light. Mix floral patterns with stripes, polka dots or even plaid. The possibilities are endless. Just keep in mind that it needs to be visually appealing.
Recommendations for Boys ?
Are you going for a classic look ? Dapper little news boy caps, jeans and a simple white tank top with suspenders is always a classic look. Jeans and a solid color t-shirt and converse is always a solid choice. If its cool outside add a plaid button down shirt left unbuttoned or a knit pullover. Avoid character t-shirts, sweatshirts and athletic shoes. Boots and other simple foot wear are best.
Less is more. Keep it simple. Add a scarf or single necklace for a pop of color or to tie in one outfit to another.
Infants or Toddlers ?
It is best to avoid too much layering or oversized clothes. Since they tend to be a bit more of a challenge to pose they can easily get lost in all of that fabric.
