Clothing Ideas

You might wonder what to wear for an upcoming Business Portrait session. I have prepared some tips on how to look your best for the photoshoot.

  • Make sure the outfit you choose is something you love and feel comfortable wearing. Imagine you have a job interview or important meeting tomorrow, what would you wear?

  • Think of a good fit. Ill-fitting clothes can make you look heavier than you really are. If the clothes are too loose, your shape will be lost in the photo. Too tight, and you risk showing button holes pulling and seams stretching.

  • Plain colours are your best choice. Patterns or prints distract and often date your photo. 

  • Avoid short sleeves if possible; this can look unprofessional and also detracts from the face.

  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with textures and layers. It’s an easy way to create 2 different looks — jacket on or jacket off. A scarf can be an easy change between a summer look and a winter look. It will also change your neckline and add volume, texture, and dimension to the photo.

  • Crisply ironed clothes will give a good impression of a composed and confident person.
