First things first, it’s really important everyone wears something they feel comfortable in and like themselves. The whole purpose of a photo session is to capture the individuality of your subjects, so they should remain true to their own style. In theses examples, you’ll notice there aren’t any outrageous, distracting patterns or logos that would take away from the subjects. There are pops of color strung throughout, tying each outfit together.
