• Wednesday’s Style – Spruce up your Autumn Wardrobe – Ladies | Vancouver Child Photographer
  • wednesdays style

    Let’s face it, most of us probably have closets packed to the brim with clothes we don’t ever wear (and some may still have price tags!) It’s time to reorganize your wardrobe to include clothes that you actually want to wear and that are versatile enough for a range of scenarios. This fall, spruce up your style with some of these basic staples that are anything but.

    Sweaters are one of the most necessary item for the fall. You never know when the weather is going to turn, and you want to be prepared. A fantastic, chunky sweater looks great paired with skinny jeans, cargo pants and even layered over dresses.

    A killer pair of boots is also another fall must-have. Knee length, booties or somewhere in-between, a great pair of boots will take you through the seasons and can be dressed up or down, depending on the situation.

    Accessorize – a long scarf can really help enhance any outfit. Wear it for comfort and wear it for style! Cross-body bags are both stylish and functional, while a statement piece of jewelry such as a chunky necklace or oversized ring will complete any look. Bonus points if it features the beautiful jewel toned colors of fall.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Styling your Early-Fall Photo Shoot – Ladies Edition
  • wednesdays style

    Now that the weather is feeling a bit crisp, it’s time to start thinking about your Fall-time family photo shoot. There are so many fun ideas for locations, but once you’ve nailed that down, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear.

    Today we’re focusing on the ladies in the family. There are so many great outfit options out there and with Fall weather, the trick is to layer. Sweaters are always an easy option. You can pair a chunky, soft sweater with a crisp white or chambray button-down for a layered effect. Play around with the bottoms – this can easily go with a pair of skinny jeans and booties or a knee-length skirt, dark tights and boots.

    If you want to layer in a different way, try a dress with a long, colorful scarf in deep, rich tones. If a dress isn’t your thing, a simple knit top paired with jeans or leggings also looks great with a chunky scarf.

    Hair should be kept natural. If you don’t want to keep it down, try a messy topknot or a casual ponytail or braid. Whatever you do, have fun taking your pictures – it will shine through on film.

  • Wednesday’s Style – Styling your Fall Photo Shoot – Men’s Edition
  • wednesdays style

    So, we’ve already discussed wardrobe choices for the ladies – now it’s time to help the men pick their outfits for their Fall family photo shoot.

    It can be tricky to find just the right thing to wear, but here are some helpful hints to make the process as painless as possible. As with the women, it’s a good idea for the men to dress in layers. You never know if the weather is going to be warm or cool. So a polo shirt or crisp button-down looks great under a v-neck sweater or jacket.

    Now that it’s fall, a corduroy or light wool sports jacket works well paired with jeans. The jeans can help make you look more casual and less corporate. Dark, rich color tones look best against the backdrop of bright skies and crisp leaves, so go for colors like navy, hunter and chocolate.

    As for footwear, casual shoes are a safe bet. Please, no sneakers! You don’t want to wear formal dress shoes, but loafers or lace-ups will do the trick. Hair should be neat and styled the way you normally wear it. If you’re usually clean-shaven, then remember to shave before the photos, giving your face time to settle. If you keep your face scruffy, just make sure it’s trimmed-up neatly.

    No, you don’t have to look like a male model for your photos, just the best version of yourself to help make your photo shoot truly memorable.
