Style Guide


1. Color Pallet:  Choose two main hues you love, and develop your color scheme around them. Use the brightest color — also known as the accent color — sparingly.


2. Layers and Texture:  Layers and texture create visual interest and will keep you warm and cozy if the weather is cool. Think tights, cardigans, blazers, and scarves.


3. Don’t forget accessories!  a flowery headband for the kids, some suspenders, will take your ensemble to the next level of cute. If you’re stumped coordinating your outfits, don’t worry! Your photographer is there to help. Let them know if you’re stuck. Good luck, and let the styling begin!


Neutral

TONE ON TONE  definition: to mean working within a general color and manipulating this color with fabrics, tints, shades and tones of the same basic color making it lighter or darker and blending textures to create interest and variety


Planning outfits using the colors and tones found in nature creates a very clean and natural feel. The subjects are so subtly balanced with their surroundings it gives the image a soft ethereal quality.  I just love her thin yellow belt!  It gives the perfect little pop of unexpected color. Just enough to create interest without drawing too much attention away from the emotion the couple is sharing.
