Choosing your clothing is very important to your portrait, to help eliminate visual confusion, similar color clothing is recommended so that no one person stands out in the family, group or couple portrait. Long sleeves and solid colors are encouraged, while darker clothing is slimming, bright colors tend to overwhelm. Using these tips will generally enhance your portrait.
Outdoor Portraits allow more variety in clothing color and backgrounds. Dressing up for outdoor portraits is great, however, casual clothing compliments outdoor environments well.
