ADDING AN ACCESSORY OR TWO TO YOUR OUTFIT REALLY HELPS bring some extra dimension + interest to your photos, and is an easy way to tie in to the rest of the group. Think big! Big statement necklaces bring a lot of pop to the photos, while the smaller, delicate ones are not as noticeable on camera.

make a statement

Belts, bracelets and earrings bring great visual interest, so choose one or two that don’t compete for attention. Fresh florals in a crown can be a really romantic touch for you or your girls as well.

winter pieces

Choosing accessories in the winter is easy {and fun!}. Hats are a great place to start, or scarfs if you want to showcase your long locks. They double as practical pieces, too, so you'll be warm and adorable! Still, be sure to coordinate hats, scarfs and jackets to stay within your color palette.

Pro tip: avoid the spray tan before your session, even a few days prior, because it tends to photograph orange even when it’s applied subtly and by a professional.
