Deciding what to wear for you photography session can be a challenge! In my post on recommended dos and don’t’s for choosing your clothing I gave some different ideas of styles and colors that can help you look your best. In this post I am sharing different shops and stores that can be great places to look.
And if you do book a session with me I provide even more extensive session guides, access to Pinterest boards and more. I am always available for any questions or to give help on clothing choices for my clients. I also provide access to an amazing online styling service.
I will always encourage you shop small business but if you need some in a pinch or a cheaper option often Target or Amazon will have what you need.
Don’t forget to remember texture and layers as you plan your session…these add a lot of interest to how your photos look. Dresses add flow and movement. But don’t feel like you have to stay stuck to dresses. Kimonos, chunky sweaters, jackets – all these are great additions to add!
This post does include affilate links from Amazon – shopping through these links won’t increase your price and will send a few cents to me.
Shops for Women

Hats – if you like hats they can be a great addition but just make sure you are comfortable in them. Amazon has some great deals. With hats don’t have too wide a brim to hide your face and also make sure you do a hair style that you don’t have to wear that hat all the time.
or this floppy one (just don’t plan to wear a floppy one the whole time as your face will be hidden.)
