What To Wear To Your Session

What To Wear To Your Session

As an Asheville Family Photographer (and a mom of 3), I totally understand the headache of finding coordinating outfits and deciding what to wear to your session. I am 100% happy to go over outfits with you, send suggestions, or anything else you need to ensure that your photos are everything that you dreamed of!


What To Wear To Your SessionWinter’s cold, sure, but it makes for some seriously stunning photographs. Snowflakes, snowmen, white canvases, glittering icy trees? It’s a photographer’s veritable wonderland! Here’s how to dress to take advantage of that winter wonderland.

  • There’s bound to be lots of white, so really punch things up with splashy colors. Think bright red, navy, yellow, green. Any color that really pops against white is a go.
  • On that same note, don’t hesitate to play with prints. I love seeing gingham, polka dots, stripes, etc.
  • Really bundle up and play up the winter factor. I love seeing fur-lined boots or hats, oversized chunky scarves, adorable gloves, etc.
  • Do wear a couple layers underneath to ensure you stay warm. Double up on those socks and throw on some long johns, if you must!


Fall is all about bundling up in lots of layers, enjoying the shift from hot to cool, and soaking up the sun and autumn foliage. Here are a few tips for choosing outfits for your fall family session:

  • Choose colors that won’t clash too much with the fall leaves. Instead, stick with a neutral palette with colors that blend seamlessly into autumn’s spectrum: earthy reds, burnt oranges, creamy nude, etc.
  • Layer up! Don’t hesitate to throw on those scarves, cardigans, blazers or hats.
  • Wear shoes that fit the season. Think riding boots or comfy, fur-lined boots. Loafers and flats can also work perfectly.

  • Wear light fabrics that let you breath, but still look polished. It’s OK to show some skin, too. Shorts are good, as are tank tops.
  • Really play up the summer accessory factor. I’m talking sun hats for the ladies and big sunglasses for all.
  • Colors such as blush, nude, and other pastel shades will play to the light and airy feel of summer.
  • Choose shoes that are comfortable and summery. Dressy flip flops or sandals, loafers, open-toed pumps, even sweet sneakers on your kiddos.


The birds are chirping, the buds are blooming, and the snow has officially melted. That means it’s time for your spring family session. Here are a few wardrobe tips to ensure the whole gang looks smashing:

  • Play up the fact that it’s spring. Have a necklace with a butterfly pendant? Perfect! An insect-printed tee? Yes, please.
  • Channel the colors of spring. Seriously – look out the window for inspiration for your family’s color palette. Greens, pinks, yellows, beige, khaki, and blues all work exceptionally well.
  • Layer up! Spring can be both warm and cold at once, so come prepared. We love spring scarves, light cardigans, vests, etc.
