What to wear

Solid colors work best.

Choose something you are comfortable in that fits well and compliments the hues in the background of your photos. Neutral colors work great. Try to avoid crazy patterns. Unless you are going for a theme, stay away from fads or too trendy outfits. Choose clothing that is timeless or classic. Make sure your under garments are not visible and that you are wearing shoes that are easy to move around in. Wear something that fits your personality and makes you feel beautiful.
