What to

Now you have booked your session lets figure out the details! The most stressful part of session planning are the outfits, but it doesn’t have to be. A few easy rules to follow and your on your way to a stylish timeless session. 

Step One:

Choose your best colors!

Step Two:

Choose the rest of the colors for your family or accessories!

Here is a great chart to help plan your outfit colors or choose your coordinating family outfits.

Colors for Cool Skin Tones

If you have cool skin, your celebrity look-a-likes include Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman,. Your best colors are on the cool end of the spectrum and are inspired by both the depths of the ocean and the depths of winter. Bright blues, emeralds, and deep purples will look great, along with frosty shades of lavender, ice blue, or pink. On the warm side, you can turn to ruby, bright rosy red, or super-pale yellows. With neutrals, you can rock cool gray, bright white, and navy. Try to avoid orange, tomato red, and strong yellows, which can clash with your skin completely

Colors for Warm Skin Tones

If you’ve got warm skin tones, you join the likes of Claire Danes, Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian. For you, the best colors are rich reflections of nature. On the warm side of the color wheel, you should turn to red, peach, coral, orange, amber, gold, and yellow. You also should look great when you wear “warmer” versions of cool colors, like olive, moss, orchid, and violet-red. Neutrals that are best for you include taupe, cappuccino, cream, and mushroom gray. Avoid chilly colors like icy blues or jewel tones like sapphire or amethyst because they can wash you out and make your skin look gray.

Colors for Neutral Skin Tones

Your neutral coloring puts you in an exclusive club with Julianne Moore, Angelina Jolie, and Julia Roberts. As a neutral, you can wear anything on the color wheel — but it’s typically best to go for softened or muted versions of a color instead of the brighter ones. Choose colors like dusty pink, jade green, cornsilk yellow, or lagoon blue. For neutral colors, turn to off-whites, coffee, mid-range grays, and black. Oversaturated colors like electric blue and magenta can overwhelm your neutral skin tone, but there’s one big exception to this: never be afraid to wear a bright, true red — you will look amazing.
