Photo Session Styling

Tonight I am having professional photos taken for my website.  I haven’t had a “head shot” taken since my sorority days at Alma College and back then we all wore the same black velvet smock!  It is something I have been dreading but I know it will make such a difference.

Over the last few days I have been trying to come up with an outfit that will be neutral enough in photos but express some of my personality.  I wanted to create a look that was casual enough to show my potential clients that I am down to earth and also something that is fashionable so they will trust me to give them wardrobe advice. 

My photo shoot is taking place in a park in Los Gatos so I thought I would stick to a summer look with this navy and white ensemble.  The top is from J.Crew and the white pants are by Tahari.

I thought I would accessorize with these cute earrings that my sister in law picked out for me at Banana Republic and my white Michael Kors enamel watch that Chris bought me.

My shoes will probably not even show but I don’t want to run the risk of having unfashionable feet!  I decided to complete the ensemble with these jeweled silver heels from Macy’s.  Just in case the photographer wants me in something more casual I will switch to my J.Crew silver sandals.

I hope everything looks okay, I am sure the photos will turn out great.  If you have any last minute advice for me please leave a comment.

If you are having professional photos taken this summer, be sure to follow these tips…

1.) Do not wear anything too trendy, you don’t want your photos to become dated quickly.
2.) Stay away from overly bright colors or patterns because they will take the attention off your face.
3.) Don’t wear anything with a logo on it!
4.) If you are having family portraits remember to coordinate, my favorite color combinations this
     year are navy with light pink and navy with light yellow.
5.) Wear your usual hairstyle, it is too risky to try something new.
