    Feel Confident in Front of the Camera: Tips to Prepare For Your Portrait Session

    Here at Kelly Kendall Studios, we're all about celebrating YOU – your unique personality, your passions, and your inner radiance. Whether you're looking to update your professional headshots, commemorate a special milestone, or simply want to treat yourself to a luxury portrait experience, we can help make that happen!


    Confidence is the key to success. When you feel good about yourself, it shows – and that's where we come in! From the moment you step into our studio, we'll make sure you feel like a VIP. We’ll guide you through the process, helping you relax and feel confident in front of the camera.

    To help you prepare for your portrait session, here are a few wardrobe tips to consider when planning what to wear.

    1. Choose Timeless Pieces:
      Consider classic, timeless wardrobe pieces that won't date your portraits. Neutrals, solids and colors that compliment your skin tone all work well.

    2. Coordinate Colors for Groups:
      Coordinate the colors of your outfits. For group portraits, this doesn't mean everyone needs to wear the same color. Choose a color palette that compliments each other or that matches your brand’s esthetic or color scheme. Avoid overly busy patterns that can distract from the main focus.

    3. Consider the Setting and Tone of Your Portraits:
      Think about the location and tone of your session. Want a more professional vibe? Opt for business clothing that fits your style – like a blazer, suit jacket or stylish shirt or blouse. Going for more of a casual feel? Consider a well-fitting sweater or top in one of your signature colors.

    4. Prioritize Fit:
      Ensure that your clothing fits well. Well-fitted clothes not only look more polished but also photograph better. Avoid clothes that are too tight or too loose.

    5. Layering Adds Depth:
      Consider adding layers to your outfit, such as a stylish jacket, scarf, or accessories. This can add depth and visual interest to your portraits.

    6. Accessorize Thoughtfully:
      Choose accessories that complement your outfit and enhance your overall look. Have a meaningful piece of jewelry? Let’s incorporate it!

    7. Quality Over Quantity:
      Choose high-quality accessories over numerous ones. A few well-selected accessories can make a big impact.

    8. Consider the Neckline:
      Pay attention to the neckline of your outfit when selecting accessories. Make sure your necklace and jewelry fits your neckline.

    9. Classic Choices:
      Opt for accessories that won't overshadow the main focus—you. If large accessories are your thing, then bring them along for some of the portraits. Stay true to what you like. If large accessories aren’t your thing, now is not the time to try it out.

    At Kelly Kendall Studios, we believe everyone deserves to feel empowered and celebrated. Our mission is to capture the essence of who you are and help you feel confident in your own skin. 

    So, if you're ready to take your image to the next level, let’s connect and talk about how YOU want to be photographed.
