We have previously talked about what to wear during your photo shoot and mentioned that layering your clothes is a great way to get a range of different looks.

You don't want to waste time by being in the dressing room making constant outfit changes during your photo shoot.

The number of changes you will be able to make will depend on how you are going for studio time, but layering items of clothes can definitely give you the variety that you are after. With the addition of some simple pieces, you can completely change your look in a matter of seconds with no fuss.

 What to layer

  • Tops are the easiest way to layer.

  • You could start with something lightweight, like a tank top or fitted short sleeve t-shirt. Then add a cardigan or jumper.

  • You could also do a third layer by putting on a jacket. Keep the jacket simple and basic in colour such as navy blue, red or olive green.

  • A scarf or hat can also be added to change your look easily and even make a great prop to keep your hands during your shoot.

  • Belts can also help change your look but will most likely be concealed as the layers come.

    Tip: If you would like to elongate the look of your neck, wear a V neck top instead of a round neck.  This will help give the illusion of a longer looking neck.

    In summer it can be a little more difficult to layer but you can always add a wrap, hat or thin scarf for a new look. Accessories can also be a way to transform your look. Put on some bangles, a watch, necklace or hair accessory that will take your casual outfit to a more formal look.

    But remember, all family members should be dressed for the same season.  It’s not a good idea for one family member to be wearing a warm jacket and another a summer outfit.  The result would be one person standing out in your portrait.

How to layer

  • When layering you want to make sure your layers complement each other and that you have different textures.

  • Make your first layer a neutral colour. It should be more form fitting, so you don't have extra bulk when you add to it.

  • Your second layer can be bolder and colourful.

  • Wrapping a textured scarf around your neck/torso will also complete a whole new look.

Some last minutes tip to help transform your look

  • Keep your hair down at the beginning of your shoot and then you have the option of tying it back later on.

  • You can even use a stylish hair wrap or headband to keep it away from your face.

  • Keep your layers simple and easy to carry around, you don't want to be digging through bags to find what you are looking for.

  • These tips can help you add more style and depth to your wardrobe without taking time away from the actual shoot.

    If in doubt, bring your clothing items along to your shoot and Nicholas will advise you on what will look the best.  We want to make sure you get the most out of your session and that you feel fabulous while doing it.
