But to get you started in the right direction, I've put together a list of 'Do's and Don'ts' of outfits of picking the clothes that photograph best. A long with a few visual examples to get ya started.
❁ Coordinate your outfits with each other & your home interior
❁ Wear earthy tones, natural fabrics, and clothing with lots of movement.
❁ Wear comfortable shoes based on location but be sure they fit in with the outfits.
❁ Dress like yourself: Wear something you feel awesome and beautiful in. Ensure it's an outfit you’ve worn before and you know it's comfortable.
❁ Match outfits unless done intentionally (Christmas pajamas, themed photos)
❁ Wear big patterns, logos, or bright colors.
❁ Wait till the day of the photos to try on your outfit
❁ Wear shoes with reflectors or dirty shoes

Add your favorite accessories that go best with your outfit- fun earrings, hats, scarfs, etc.
Select the right shoes based on the location, and consider what you’d normally wear if I wasn’t following you around with a camera. Being barefoot makes sense on the beach, and boots are beautiful in the mountains
