What to Wear for Your Senior or Graduation Portrait

September 20, 2021  •  1 Comment

At Myles Studio Photography, it is my number one goal to bring out the best in you, creating photos that look natural and capture your personality.

One of the most important factors in creating a great portrait is deciding what to wear.  This can make or break your photo session. For photo sessions in our studio, we recommend to bring something casual and something a little more formal, and something just for the fun of it! 

Solid colors work well, and can stand the test of time. Try to avoid anything with a lot of patters, like polka dots or stripes.  Bright colored clothing can work and is even encouraged. But most importantly, wear something that is comfortable and matches your personality. You may also wear something that shows who you are, like a hat, scarf, or other type of accessory.  Another great idea is the use of props that show off an interest of yours, like an instrument or sporting equipment.

For on location photos, choose an  outfit that matches the season with both color and style.  Warm colors in the fall, like brown and burgundy, cool colors in the winter, like blues and greys, and  bright colors in the spring and summer.  Remember, depending on the location, it may be difficult to change, so bring accessories can help create diversity in the photos.

For females, we recommend to have your hair and makeup professionally done.  But that is totally up to you.  If you do your own make-up, try to keep is simple.  As the saying goes, less is more. Be sure to bring a comb and/or brush as well.  Accessories like hats, scarves, and sunglasses also can add to the shoot. For footwear, we recommend shoes or boots. But again, if you're wearing jeans, sneakers can work.  Once you pick out your outfits, look at yourself in the mirror, and ask yourself, "is this the look I want"

For boys and men, we recommend something formal like a tux or suit, or for boys, maybe a polo shirt. something casual like jeans, a T-shirt or casual button shirt, and/or something that he likes to wear often, like a sports jersey.  

Next, when your photo shoot is outdoors, neutral colors work well, like browns, blues, tans ect… But it does depend on the season.  For example, warm colors in the fall (think autumn leaves), cool colors in the winter, and more vibrant colors in the spring and summer.  If you can, new is better than used. (A good excuse to go shopping) Avoid sneakers and white or bright socks.

What to Wear for a Business Headshot

July 27, 2021  •  1 Comment

Deciding what to wear for a business or corporate headshot can be more difficult than meets the eye.  Your business headshot is often times a potential clients 1st impression of you.  So it's important that you look approachable, but not fake, and that your outfit matches your profession.  So for a corporate photo a jacket and tie for males and a professional jacket or blazer for females.  But if you work a blue collar profession, then something that represents your line of work. If you work in a creative field, then wear something that show your creativity.  

We also recommend keeping you outfit simple.  Solid colors work best.  Try to avoid to many patterns if at all possible.  However accessories like ties, handkerchiefs and scarfs can add personality to the photo.  And lastly, make sure your clothing is pressed and ironed.  We do have a place to change if you want to keep you clothing on a hanger.  Below are some examples of business headshots.

What to Wear for a Family Portrait

November 13, 2020  •  1 Comment

Family portraits are so special.  A great portrait can stay in the family for generations.  At Myles Studio Photography we know that your family means everything to you.  You laugh together, cry together, take vacations together.  Your love for each other is endless.  That's why we want to make sure we help to create a family portrait that shows who you are as a family, while also making sure you look your best. Whether your a family of two or 20, with multiple generations, it's my job to bring out the best in you.

In order to make a great family portrait, one of the most important factors is deciding what to wear.  Your clothing can make of brake your photo session.  Below are some tips to help.

1. Choose a color theme.  This can be done in several ways. By wearing all the same color, wearing shades of the same color, or choosing a dominant color and one or two complimentary colors.  Take a look at a few photos below.  But keep in mind, you can put your own twist to it and wear clothing that's comfortable.

2. Your footwear also plays a key.  Shoes and boots work best. Sneakers should only be worn if the go with your outfit, like your wearing jeans and t-shirts.   Most importantly, your shoes between each family member should match in color and style.   For example, if brown boots are worn, everyone should have some type of brown boot.  

3 Clothing should be in the same style.  If mom is wearing something formal, the the rest of the family should be formal as well. 

4. This is a fun tip.  Bring props if you like. For example, everyone in caps, or everyone wearing sun glasses.  Use your imagination.

We want you to not only enjoy your photos, but the photo session as well.  We invite you to contact us for your family portrait.  It will definitely be worth it.  If interested in reserving your photo session with us, just fill out our contact form, and we'll be in touch.

Lambs Hill - Venue Highlight

November 03, 2020  •  1 Comment

There are so many amazing wedding venues in the hudson Valley. One of my favorite venues I've had the opportunity to work at is the Lambs Hill Venue in Beacon NY.  It's like a place out of a storybook.  The view is amazing, the banquet space has such a rustic charm.  Add the farm animals that they allow the wedding couples to be photographed next to, and you come up with amazing photos and amazing memories.  Take a look at these photos from a wedding at this wonderful venue.

I hope you can see why Lambs Hill is one of my favorite locations for weddings.  If your looking for a place that is unique, and that is extra special, especial during the times we're in, then check out Lambs Hill.  It works perfectly for a wedding, micro wedding, elopement, or even a vow renewal. I love photographing here, and hope that you will not only choose lambs Hill, but also choose Myles Studio Photography to capture your day.

Thank you.
