How should I dress for Beach Pictures?-Pensacola Photographer
September 6, 2019
I get asked all the time how should I dress for my photo session? This is such a great question!! The beach is a place where traditionally families and friends join together to relax and unwind so my first answer is something comfortable and fun!
Wearing White is great but with our white sand and sometimes our white skies it is best to mix in other colors so you do not blend into the sand! Avoid wearing any bright or neon colors as they will create a color cast on your face. Mixing solids and patterns work nicely when it comes to guys and boys. Colors that work best are navy, aqua, teal, coral, green, gray, pink. Bold colors work great too like red, yellow, burgundy, and green.
Things you avoid wearing to your session
Large and bold Jewelry
Big Bows on Children
Neon Colors (They add color casts to your face)
Clothing that is too short or too low cut
Shirts with logos or graphics of any sort this includes the nike swoosh and other athletic apparel
Lotion, do not apply lotion before a session, the sand will stick to your body
Sleeveless dresses, tank tops if you have tan lines
The main thing is you are at the beach so go and have some fun hanging with your family leave the rest to me. You can’t control the heat, or the wind or even the ocean so embrace the ocean in all its beauty. You may want to bring an extra change of clothes and a towel in case you decide to frolic in the waves and don’t forget those flip flops.
Lastly don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with your style!! Long flowy skirts and dresses work nicely not only because they are gorgeous on everyone but because of the wind and movement we have at the beach. Mix and match prints with solid colors to add depth and lastly just have fun being you!! Here is a Pinterest Page I have created with a few more ideas.
