The first questions I typically get asked during the planning stages of a clients portrait session is, “What do I wear?”. I wanted to take a quick second out to say, I understand and feel your pain. Even with my own portrait sessions, I have had to figure out what I was going to wear. I started with “what do I have in my closet?”. Then I took to Pinterest for some visual inspiration. I gathered up some of those visuals for you, see below. This Wardrobe Inspiration Guide is for everyone looking to have their photos taken during the fall. Some of the tips can certainly be applied to those having their portraits taken during other times of the year, but as we approach those times of the year, come back here to the blog and look for that seasons “Wardrobe Inspiration Guide”.
Feel free to wear what you’d like! This is only a basic guideline to help you out. I can also offer more personalized suggestions at your request.
I strongly encourage outfit changes and backups. You’re welcome to bring extra clothing for mixing and matching outfits. Go ahead and get creative! Bring your hats, cute shoes, jackets, jewelry, scarves, ties – anything goes. Have an amazing dress? Bring that too. Unsure about something? Bring it anyway!

Along with being an “elder millennial” wedding and lifestyle photographer, I’m also a family gal. I’m recently engaged to my best friend of 10 years, mama to a rad teenage daughter (who happens to photograph weddings with me), the owner of (2) cute little pups, and driver of a yellow Dodge Challenger. On non-wedding days, you’ll most likely find me in the gym by 7:30 am getting my cardio on and then hitting up my favorite local San Luis Obispo California hotspots with my fiance, daughter, and friends. Traveling adventures are my jam, there’s no place I won’t go with my camera in hand.
