What to Wear - Bright Colors for the Win!

We get so many questions about “What to Wear” for a photoshoot on the beach and our answers are pretty straight forward. 


1. Feel good, look good! If you love your clothes and how you feel in them then it will show in your photos. If you’re uncomfortable or wearing something that isn’t “you” then you aren’t likely to love the way you look in it. 

2. Coordinate! You don’t have to wear the exact same outfit. In fact, we think it looks better when you are color coordinated and not matching from head to toe. Pull from the same color family or scheme and you’ll look great together! 

3. COLOR! Our beaches are khaki colored so when everyone arrives in the traditional white and khaki, folks tend to look washed out. Adding color can really add personality to your portraits! 

This sweet family ROCKED all three of these categories and we love the bright colors that they selected! How cute are the matching beachballs that they brought along? There is so much personality in these images and it really makes a huge difference!
