Finding outfits for your brand session is the number one question I get from my clients! I do encourage you to shop your closet first, but lets be real its totally fun to find a few new pieces to show off in your images! Your brand and the way you want to come across personally in your brand is going to dictact what types of clothing you purchase. (And your job of course.) But my staples are always a professional outfit, a more dressy casual outfit, (Think blouse and blazer paired with jeans, my favorite combo!) cozy casual outfits, and dresses. In a brand session the goal is lots of variety in a short amount of time, so more outfits is better and layers are your friend! Anything you can quickly take off and it will change the look is a big winner! If you want more tips on wardrobe for your brand session check out my other blog post “The Power of Wardrobe For Your Brand Photoshoot“!

Now here is my big list of all my favorite shops and I do want to say, these are all femenine boutiques. I unfortunately do not have as much knowledge on mens attire.
