Summer is one of my favourite seasons for photography because of the vibrant colours it gives us. 

The trees are at their fullest and the leaves turn a beautiful green, whilst the weather turns much warmer allowing us to dress up in light, flowy dresses and t shirts. 

It can be difficult to know what to wear for a Summer photo shoot. So, I have put together some tips before you have your photo shoot with me. 


Consider Colour Coordination

If you are having a family photo shoot, try to wear similar tones and colours so as you compliment each other. Something not too contrasting, but something that goes together nicely. 

But also, compliment the backdrop. The location will be vibrant so this will be warm greens, vibrant flowers, blue skies and strong summery tones. Compliment these colours by wearing softer tones such as whites, soft greys, yellows, pinks, soft blues or creams. Denim never dates, so that’s always a good choice. Try to avoid vivid colours. Greens or bright oranges do not tend to blend well with Summer.

Please avoid patterns. Plain is best, and try to avoid large lettering or logos as these can date quickly. Although I know black is a popular colour, it can look very dull, so try to consider something else, unless you are wearing a suit, for example. 

It does not mean you all have to come wearing the same colour. Colour co-ordinate with similar tones.

If you are having a maternity or pregnancy announcement photo session, then long flowy white or pastel toned dresses are perfect, and if your partner is part of the photo shoot, then something smart such as a white or plain shirt works well.

Consider Colour Palettes

What colours do you have in your home? Where will you be hanging, or placing your photographs? If your home is bright and airy, then creams and whites may work with your clothing. If it is dark and deep colours, then yellows or something warm may work best.

Be Comfortable

The main thing is that you are comfortable. Wear shoes that you can walk in, as some locations may require some walking to find the best backdrop. Avoid trainers if you can. If you are most comfortable in jeans, then wear jeans. You do not have to turn up in evening wear or suits unless you really want to. Be as comfortable and as relaxed as you can be. I want you to enjoy it and to be yourselves so that means not changing your style.

Consider the weather

The weather is often very warm in Summer. Dress for the season and please bring water.

If it is raining on the day of your photo shoot, I will often reschedule. The location will often be a factor in how sheltered we are and the backdrop it provides. 

Flower fields create a strong vibrant background, so whites and creams work perfectly with this type of setting as the photograph above shows.


If you’d like me to advise on clothing and take a look at your planned outfit for your session, I’m more than happy to. Please contact me and we can discuss colours and outfits. I’m always happy to receive your photographs or links to your outfit’s if you’d like me to look at them beforehand. 


I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
