Santa Sessions are just around the corner coming up on November 22nd at CMP Studios! Santa’s suit is in its final revisions and we can’t wait to see the final results! Christine is working hard on the amazing display that you all will love, we just wanted to give you a little information on some Styling Board ideas for your session!
While the sessions are short and the Studio Wardrobe isn’t available to borrow , I still want to make sure you have help with choosing outfits. I’ve said it a million times, but clothing choices can really make-or-break your portraits so I have created some Styling Boards to help ease the stress!
By now you know I gravitate toward neutral colors. The reason being, they are classic!
They don’t “age” or go out of style, and they are safe. Small pops of colors will look great during the sessions. The weather is cooler, Fall is upon us, and the holidays bring richer tones.Remember though: Santa will be wearing bright red pants with a workshop shirt! You don’t want to compete with him, and clothing ultimately shouldn’t catch your eye before the actual moment. When shopping, try to pull things that will complement Santa and not stick out. If you choose a colored pant, then go with a neutral top, and visa-versa. You don;t want kiddos wearing all color.
Colors to avoid: orange, bright pink, purple, yellow, red, bright green
Colors to try: muted darker blue, brown, gold, dark gray, hunter green
I have attached 4 different style boards to show you looks for Big Sister, Little Brother, Little Sister, and Big Brother. Each styling board shows a different color combination and can help you see how to pair colors and patterns without going over board. As always these are just suggestions and are not requirements, I just love playing with outfits!
Everything in these styling boards can be found at Zara, GAP, Old Navy, and Target. I am also attaching the links to all of the clothing options, which will take you directly to each piece. (Simply click on the piece that you love, and it will direct you to the website!) This makes it super easy to find/purchase, but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitateto reach out! Shop soon,as these pieces might sell out fast.
