SUMMER SESSION TIPS – STYLING FOR HOT WEATHER | MELISSA ROSIC PHOTOGRAPHY, WV FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Styling tips for Summer Sessions

  • Wear light, breathable fabrics – The type of fabric you choose to wear in the summer can be so important. The light and breathable fabrics will keep you cooler.
  • Light-colored clothing – Light colors reflect light, so this will help you stay a little bit cooler while we move through your session.
  • Dresses – Ladies, this is the perfect time to wear them! Dresses, short or long, are a great way to stay cool and provide extra airflow to keep you cool.
  • Sandals or open-toe shoes
  • Textured or patterned fabrics can help hide sweat stains.
  • Wear an undershirt – For the guys who plan on wearing a button-down to their session. Wearing a white undershirt will help sweat stains stay away longer.
  • If you have long hair, consider wearing it up off of your neck.

Things I would pass on…

  • Dark-colored, heavy fabrics – This type of fabric tends to draw in the heat and make you warmer faster. Stay away from denim and choose cotton or linen instead.
  • Too many layers would be best for a fall session. Keep anything you wear light and simple.

A few other suggestions…

  • Bring water to help keep you hydrated and a towel to keep you dry. We will have time during your session to take breaks for touch-ups and sips of water.
  • An outfit change – If your first outfit gets super sweaty mid-photo session, you can always change into a second outfit. It could simply be a quick shirt change to ensure fresh photos.
