For my very first blog post I decided to share something special – a custom infographic I designed for my good friends Edae and Tuan. They are having their first child this summer and I’m very excited to do a maternity photo session with them this weekend. “What should we wear?” is one of the most important questions I was asked in preparation for this shoot. I did a lot of research on the subject, scoured countless blogs and Pinterest boards and finally came up with a simple system of picking outfits that any couple can use for their photo session. The infographic uses three distinct categories to help clients make some basic fashion decisions.
1. The Basics of Contrast section teaches couples how to put together outfits regardless of their colour, basing their choices on successful pairings of light and dark tones.
2. The Brights & Neutrals section illustrates the principle of picking one focal-point outfit (usually for the mom-to-be) and complimenting it with a neutral outfit for her partner to wear.
3. Finally, the Patterns & Solids section show couples how to successfully use patterns as a part of their photo session outfits. The key rule here is to stick to a single patterned garment and use solid colours for any other items of clothing the couple wears.
I hope you enjoy this fun & useful infographic!
