Choosing the perfect outfit for your personal branding portraits session can be stressful. You want to look professional, but also edgy and casual. It is important to take your personality into account when choosing an outfit because it will help you feel more relaxed and confident during the shoot.

I typically see clients who are anxious and uncomfortable during portraits sessions. The clothing can make a big difference in how they feel about themselves, their personal brand, and the portraits that we take together. I will be happy to advise you on what would work best for your individual personality type or look.

What your clothing choice says about your personality

– Professional: if you want portraits with a conservative edge then choose something like an all black suit with a crisp white shirt and red tie. This outfit is reminiscent of old school business portraits but also reflects modern professional style while remaining appropriate for both male and female genders.

– Edgy: this shoot is going to be spontaneous so it’s important to have some quick options prepared ahead of time just in case things go off schedule! For portraits with a more edgy vibe, choose something like jeans and boots or body-con dress. If you are going for this look it is important to be comfortable in your clothing so they can see the natural movement of your poses.

– Casual: whether that means relaxing on the couch at home or sitting by the water, clothing should reflect what feels right for you during portraits sessions! Something like cotton shorts and t shirt will work well when shooting portraits outside but if we’re inside then try wearing something comfy yet stylish such as flare pants and an oversized sweater.

– Formal: sometimes there is just no way around formal portraits – weddings, corporate events, birthdays etc., which call for dressing up! These types of portraits are best for those who have a polished look, like suit and tie or ball gown. Keep in mind that clothing should reflect your personal style so choose something formal but also reflects you as an individual!

Some things to consider when choosing your outfit:

– how does this clothing make me feel? Am I comfortable in it, confident, relaxed, etc.?

– do I look like myself wearing these clothes? Do they reflect who I am as an individual versus trying too hard to fit into someone else’s idea of what is cool/hip/etc.? If not then maybe rethink your choice. You want to be true to yourself during this special time so people can see the real you – without all the fake stuff.
