We totally get how important it is to nail that perfect look to represent your brand and personality. So, we’ve put together some tips to help you choose the best clothing for your session. Let’s make you shine!
- Dress to Reflect Your Brand: Think about the message and image you want to convey with your personal brand. Consider your brand’s colors, style, and overall vibe. Dress in a way that aligns with your brand’s identity and resonates with your target audience.
- Aim for Timeless and Versatile: Opt for clothing that won’t look outdated in a few years. Classic, timeless pieces will ensure that your portraits remain relevant for a long time. Additionally, choose versatile outfits that can be styled in different ways to create various looks during the session.
- Embrace Your Personal Style: Don’t be afraid to showcase your unique personality and style. Your personal branding portraits should reflect the authentic you. Select outfits that make you feel comfortable and confident, as this will shine through in your photos.
- Keep It Professional: Unless your brand specifically calls for a more casual look, it’s generally best to lean towards a professional appearance. Dress as you would when meeting with your ideal client or attending a business event. A polished and put-together look exudes professionalism and reliability.
- Pay Attention to Fit and Tailoring: Well-fitted clothing can make a world of difference in your portraits. Avoid clothes that are too loose or overly tight. Invest in tailoring if needed to ensure your outfits flatter your body shape and highlight your best features.
- Avoid Distracting Patterns and Logos: Busy patterns and large logos can divert attention from your face and brand message. Opt for solid colors or subtle patterns that enhance rather than overpower the composition. This way, the focus remains on you and your brand.
You can still wear bright solid colours if that’s your personal style, just keep the brand logos out of it!
- Incorporate Accessories: Accessories can elevate your overall look and add personality to your portraits. Choose accessories that complement your outfits and align with your brand’s aesthetic. But remember, less is often more. Aim for tasteful and purposeful accents that enhance rather than overwhelm.
- Experiment with Layers and Textures: Layering can add visual interest and depth to your portraits. Consider adding blazers, cardigans, scarves, or statement pieces to create different looks. Mixing textures and fabrics can further enhance the richness of your images.
- Consider Your Background: Think about the environment or backdrop you’ll be photographed against. Choose colors and tones that contrast or complement the background to ensure you stand out in the portraits. This will help create a harmonious and impactful visual composition.
- Bring Options and Trust Your Photographer: It’s always a good idea to bring a few clothing options to the session. This way, you and your photographer can decide together which outfits work best based on the location, lighting, and desired mood. Trust their expertise and enjoy the collaborative process.
Remember, your personal branding portraits should authentically represent you and your brand. Have fun with the process, and let your personality shine through your clothing choices. We can’t wait to capture your unique essence and help you elevate your brand to new heights!
