Dresses and skirts tend to look most stunning on camera because they really flatter the female body — which is probably why the red carpet is always full of so many dresses and not very many pantsuits! We recommend choosing long, flowy dresses or skirts because they’re flattering on all body types, look amazing on camera and bring extra movement and dimension to your photos. Maxi (or floor length) skirts and dresses will give us the best “twirl factor” and look incredibly gorgeous when juxtaposed with nature, like the desert, forest, fields, or beach. Cute, shorter cocktail-length dresses or midi skirts photograph beautifully as well. Our clients who choose to bring two dresses will sometimes select one of each!
If you don’t want to spend a ton of money adding a new permanent piece to your wardrobe, many of our clients love Rent the Runway for their photos because you don’t have to spend a lot to feel like a million bucks. Plus, you can send the outfits back when the session is over. Some of our clients love having an excuse to go shopping and purchase a new permanent piece (or two!) for their wardrobe. That’s okay, too! If you’re a senior, think about incorporating your prom dress! Whatever works for you! So, avoid pants and shorts for your session and try saying yes to a dress (or skirt!) or two! You won’t regret it!
