How To Dress For Your Session
"When you look into your mother's eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth." - Mitch Albom
I simply adore the Leonard family and feel a connection to them that makes my heart soar to know I am trusted with their yearly memories. I think Katie knocked it out of the park for this session- I think it always comes down to what makes you feel comfortable. Once you have booked your session, you’re left going, “now what?” What to wear, how to coordinate everyone?
I always tell families to coordinate based on what mom wears. Yup- this is all about you, mom!
Here are my top tips for planning your outfits!
Maxi dresses are flattering on every body type.
Keep that in mind while shopping! (Maxi dresses are usually a slam dunk for shoots, and they’re so versatile. Add a belt or a statement necklace with strappy sandals for the summer, or a belted fitted cardi and a scarf in the fall.
Skinny jeans are flattering on most women, even the curvy ones! Pair them with cute heels or wedges, and your legs look a mile long. If you’re overweight and don’t feel comfortable with the tighter fit, I recommend a fit called “skinny boot cut.” You can find them at American Eagle, Gap, and the Level 99 brand is amazing!
Take a friend shopping with you. They will see you better than you see yourself when trying on clothes. If he/she tells you it looks great, believe them! We’re our own worst critics.
Flaunt your best asset. I’m self conscious about my stomach and upper arms, but I like my legs. So, I feel most comfortable in a maxi dress with 3/4 length sleeves- it’s just my look!
