You don’t need to be Gok Wan to know how to look good for your photoshoot, but a few tips on what to wear for your winter portrait session are always helpful.

  1. Be comfortable.   You want your photoshoot to be a relaxed and happy event   Clothes that make you feel comfortable will help ease you into the shoot.   Be yourself!what to wear for your winter portrait session - sillick Photography
  2. Wear clothes that work best for your environment. It may sound obvious but if is cold and raining then wear clothes that are warm and dry! There’s no point wearing your favourite summer dress and sandals to go traipsing around the forest in winter only to then end up damp and miserable.what to wear for your Winter portrait sessions in the New Forest - Sillick Photography
  3. Lots of thin layers will help keep you warmer on your shoot than one large coat.    If it all goes wrong though, maybe your photographer will take a hit for the team and lend you his coat to stay warmwinter portrait sessions in Hampshire and Dorset - Sillick Photography
  4. Colourful coats can add contrast to your images and make them pop from the background. If you’re shooting in the open forest avoid muted colours as they were only aid to camouflage you. If it’s a dreary overcast day avoid whites and greys and go for a pop of colour instead

  5. Check that the clothes you are thinking of wearing do not affect your skin tones. Use a mirror to see if the bright neon Green sweater you’re wearing reflects colour under your chin. If it does, consider a different sweater or use accessories, such as a scarf, to break the colours up.How to dress with style for a winter photosg=hoot
  6. Avoid wearing clothing with any logos, motives or dates. Anything that can be used to date an image should be avoided. Graphics on clothing can distract from the focal point of an image, which should be your face.
  7. For group/couple/family shots, try to choose outfits that don’t match, but at the same time compliment each other.
