It's time for warmer weather and we get to begin adding lots of fun and vibrant colors to our wardrobes again.

Trying to determine what to wear to your photo shoot can be one of the most time consuming and difficult choices to make. So here are some Do's and Don't of clothing choices...(let it be known that this is MY opinion. I do not think that i'm better than anyone else. This is just a list of suggestions).
1. Match! Please DON'T!! Gone are the days of everyone wearing the same color or type of shirt and pants. You want to complement each other's outfits by choosing colors that work well together. If everyone is wearing the same outfit, they tend to blend in together and there won't be too much pop and life to the images.
Coordinate vs. Matching...let's not get cheesy!
