The thing I love most about Wardrobe Wednesday’s is that our collaboration comes from eight different women and within this group of women we are all different in our styles, taste, and ways of capturing an image. We all have a true passion for what we do and it shows through the images we share with our clients. The main reason why we love Wardrobe Wednesday’s is because it helps give ideas and inspiration to our clients and people who are preparing for their upcoming photo session. It’s that extra mile we choose to go for our clients as well as our readers. This week’s Wardrobe Wednesday comes from Jennifer over at Minor Impressions Photography. She has decided to share a collection that suites the everyday woman and here is what she had to say…
“Ok, so I admit that one of my biggest reasons that I don’t let too many people take pictures of me is because I am not quite a size 4. Let’s just say that I’ve had a couple of kids and my body isn’t really shaped the way it was when I was in college. This seems to be the reason that many of my clients put off taking pictures as well or if they finally agree to have pictures taken, they usually choose something black to wear. So, I decided that I would show you ladies that you don’t have to be tiny to have flattering family portraits done, and you can add a little bit of color to your wardrobe. These outfits are great to coordinate with any family session, but it’s also perfect for the graduating seniors who have a fuller figure.
The first two outfits have bottoms that are high-wasted. The blue jeans and the pencil-skirt both accentuate the smallest part of your waste and help to elongate the section between your waist and knees. You should avoid low-rise jeans because it makes your legs look shorter, and the darker wash jeans are better because stone-wash jeans often emphasize your rear and legs and make them larger than they really are. Both shirts fall right at the waste which draws the eye to the smallest part of your body, but they don’t cling to your stomach.
Outfit # 3 is a great sundress that really makes the waste look tiny. Many women are also self-conscious about their arms, so it is great to pair with a cardigan. Higher-heeled shoes are a great way to make your legs look much longer. The higher the heel, the longer your legs will look, but be sure to wear something you will be comfortable in.”
