What to wear

Family Photoshoots with matching white tee's and jeans has been a little overdone, if you're after

individuality and adding a splash of colour to your photoshoot doesn't scare you, then lets chat.

Some of my amazing clients making such an effort with their colour palette

Be You

Accessorize with statement pieces. You can stay within your personal style but elevate your look.

Don't be afraid to use colour, prints, textures, a hat, scarf and jewellery

Comfort Meets Style

Be stylish but comfortable so you're not constantly adjusting yourself and self-conscious.

Wear clothes that you love, this will make you feel confident in front of the camera.

Even if you're making a point of wearing something out of the ordinary, try to make sure you're ready to rock it before your photoshoot.

Hair and Makeup

I can always see a difference in my photos when my clients make an effort.

A pop of lip colour can do magical things on camera but less is more, keep it simple,

we don't want to change how you look too much.

Men - I love a beard so don't feel you need to get rid of it, just tidy it up.

And please please please, no makeup on kids, they're naturally beautiful.

Consider the Season

Spring / Summer - pale blues, baby pinks, neutrals and the 2019 colour - coral.

Autumn / Winter - rich reds, navy, mustard, rust, olive and black.

Flow and Movement

Sometimes clothes that are flowing help the composition of the photo by providing leading lines. If you're outdoors and it's a little windy, let that play to your advantage with your clothing to achieve a different effect.


I get asked this a lot, I always advise my clients to stay away from neon, graphic tees and anything with wording or branding. Here are my current favourite colours:

Finally, here ere are some outfit ideas I have gathered from Pinterest:
