Although there are exceptions to every rule, here are some suggestions, you may want to consider.
Dress appropriately. For outdoor sessions and family photos, we're going for a more casual look. (High heels, suits and ties may work in an urban setting, like downtown Charlotte, but not so much in the middle of a park)
If the portrait is to include more than one person, co-ordinate colors. In other words, do not dress as individuals, but as a team. Your photos will come out looking much better.
Proper dress allows the face to dominate the portrait. Against a medium or dark background, the colors that photograph best are medium to dark tones of green, brown, rust, wine or blue. Darker shades are more slimming.
SHOES: Shoes are rarely visible in photos. In a rural setting, they may be behind bushes, for example. If your scheduled shoot requires foot travel, wear the appropriate footwear.
