The Top 3 Reasons Why Women Should Wear Dresses to a Photo Shoot
I am so excited to start blogging! This is my first official blog post, and let me tell you....I am nervous! I have never considered myself a great storyteller, my husband will be the first to tell me that it is all about the delivery...and...well....my delivery sucks!!! BUT...that's ok because it is good to put oneself out there, and if this topic helps even one woman feel more confident in choosing what to wear on a photo shoot then I have done something right.
When it comes to a photo shoot, the thing I get asked most from my clients is what to wear. To some, choosing the right outfits can be one of the most stressful parts of the photo shoot. What if our outfits are unflattering? What if they clash? What if the clothes I pick accentuate the parts of me I am most insecure about? You are not alone! I, myself, have chosen outfits that I thought looked good, but am disappointed when I see them in photographs.
So, here we go!
The top 3 reasons why women should wear dresses to a photo shoot.
1. Dresses are very flattering in photos.
I have heard from clients before that they do not wear dresses because they are not a 'dress person' so why should they wear them to a photo shoot. The answer is simple. Dresses are very flattering in photographs. Dresses can be forgiving. Dresses are fun and dresses with movement add an extra touch of elegance and grace to your photos.
2. Why not pamper yourself! You are worth it!
You are spending the time and money to get photographs taken, so why not feel like a million bucks while you are at it! Let me tell you, if you feel great, that feeling will emulate in the photos. Trust me!
3. Dresses add elegance to photographs.
Dresses are timeless, they will never go out of style. If you take a look at photographs where a woman is wearing a dress, they look elegant and classy. Take weddings for example, most brides are in wedding gowns. I cannot think of a single image where a bride doesn't look glamorous and classy in their wedding dress.
I am starting to offer a photography package called 'Enchanted Dreams' which was inspired by girls and their love of dresses. I provide the dresses and allow the girls to pick from my collection. The look in their eyes when they get to try on the dresses and ultimately get to wear them for a photo shoot is priceless. They feel beautiful and it truly does emulate in the photo shoot. I believe that us women should be able to feel that way too. So the next time you are booking a photo shoot, remember this post and wear a dress!
