Planning your outfits

I know that choosing outfits for photos is down right daunting. So I would like to help you by sharing some tips!

Begin with the most difficult person to dress, this is usually Mom! Plan all the other outfits around that person, remembering to coordinate colors and patterns.

Consider the colors in your home decor when you're planning your outfits. Your portraits will ultimately hang in your home and need to fit cohesively, reflecting the personality and style of your family.

Mixing textures is a great way to add some dimension to your outfits. For example: a daughter in a  fur vest, Dad in a leather jacket, and Mom in a chunky knit sweater, adds texture and interest to your selections.

Layers allow you the option to  change your look by removing  a jacket or sweater.  Accessories are also a great way to add some interest, or a pop of color!

Fall color suggestions:  Earth tones, found in nature. Bree's faves: Olive, hunter green, browns, tans, rust, navy, burgundy, red, burnt orange, gold.

Winter suggestions (not limited to): Same as Fall. Also pastels, deep primary colors, neutrals. Textures are beautiful in the Fall & Winter months. Bree's faves: primary colors, warm and bundled up, with lots of textures! Bring a coat!  Maybe consider looking very "wintery", with a bundled up look!

Spring /Summer suggestions (not limited to): pastel, primary & neutral colors.  Bree's faves: blush, gold, tan, mustard yellow, army green, greys.


I LOVE to see Moms arrive in a flowy dress. It gives us so many great opportunities to add motion, and drama to your session. Dresses are also very flattering in camera.

I offer a private collection of dresses,and twirling skirts for you to use for your session. They are available in various styles, colors and sizes.

I am also very excited to offer my clients the use of my Reclamation dress. It is a beautiful vintage lace, bohemian styled dress. It is adjustable in size, and I have several slips and bodysuits to wear underneath, as it is sheer in spots. Bust area can be laced, to provide more coverage. Photo below.
