What to wear for a photo session?

In this section you can find information on how to dress for a Photo Session in Cyprus and not only. In fact it`s about what to wear on any photo session and what would make you more comfortable in front of the camera. We are always open to new ideas and new concepts, so please do not hesitate to contact us and share your ideas, suggestions and questions.

For newborns and maternal photo sessions it is preferred to use completely white or black clothes. For men we recommend a white shirt, matching it with jeans, especially denim. For the mother, wearing a loose dress, large, white or black will provide ease and comfort in front of the camera. Also, we advise you not to wear socks or underwear that will leave marks on the skin before a maternal and newborn photo shooting.

In the background, we can use any piece of beautiful material or a fluffy or knitted blanket in solid colours. For babies, you can bring your favorite outfit.

For children and adolescents photo sessions, we should allow their personality to shine. For boys we can keep a simple outfit, with jeans or khaki overalls. For girls we can use solid colours. But what if your princess wants to wear a nice dress and rubber boots, plus sunglasses? Why not?! …although not recommended for adults, for children we can allow some shiny clothes. There are no limits, as long as the viewer’s eye will be drawn to face of the child and not to the multitude of accessories added. This should be applied to the family portraits as well.

A neutral theme helps the viewers to focus their eyes on the important part – your faces. We recommend solid colours to be used, jeans or khaki coloured pants. This is advantageous if you want a more traditional approach. If you are looking for a more modern look or if you simply want to do a session in your home, it is recommended to find outfits that are well coordinated with the colour palette of the house.

For an engagement photo session in Cyprus, we recommend you to be natural as changing your dressing style too radically often creates some discomfort, which could be noticed in the final result.

Do not forget! Your naturalness is the one that counts the most!
