When planning a photography session at the beach, it’s important to select clothing options that complement the natural surroundings, highlight your features, and create a cohesive and visually appealing look. Here are some of the best clothing choices for a beach photography session:
Neutral Colors: Neutral tones like whites, creams, beige, or pastels are timeless and work well in beach photography. These colors harmonize with the natural backdrop, accentuate the beach’s serene atmosphere, and create a soft and elegant look.
Soft and Flowy Fabrics: Lightweight and flowy fabrics, such as chiffon, silk, or linen, can add movement and a sense of ethereal beauty to your photographs. These materials catch the breeze and create visually captivating images. Avoid heavy or stiff fabrics that may appear bulky or distract from the overall aesthetic.
Maxi Dresses and Skirts: Maxi dresses or skirts are a popular choice for beach photography sessions. They offer a romantic and whimsical look, and their length can create stunning silhouettes against the backdrop of the sand and water. Opt for designs with flowing skirts, open backs, or interesting details to add visual interest.
Beachy Sundresses: Light, airy sundresses are a classic option for beach photography. Choose dresses with delicate patterns, floral prints, or lace details that reflect the beach’s relaxed and carefree vibe. Opt for styles that flatter your body shape and allow you to move comfortably.
Light-Colored Shirts and Blouses: For a casual and beach-appropriate look, consider wearing light-colored shirts or blouses. Soft pastels, light blues, or crisp whites can create a fresh and clean aesthetic. Pair them with shorts, linen pants, or skirts to complete the ensemble.
Coordinate Colors and Tones: If you’re planning a group or family photoshoot, consider coordinating your outfits to create a cohesive look. Choose colors within the same tonal range or complementary hues that work well together. This can help create a harmonious visual composition and enhance the overall impact of the photos.
Accessories and Details: Accessories can add a touch of personality and style to your beach photography session. Consider wearing wide-brimmed hats, delicate scarves, statement necklaces, or dainty bracelets that complement your outfit without overpowering it. Avoid large, distracting accessories that may draw attention away from the subject.
Barefoot or Sandals: Embrace the beach atmosphere by going barefoot or wearing sandals. Walking along the shoreline, dipping your toes in the water, or leaving footprints in the sand can create beautiful and candid moments during the photography session.
Remember to communicate with your photographer about the overall style and vision you have in mind. They can provide additional guidance on what clothing options will work best for the specific lighting conditions, desired atmosphere, and the type of images you want to capture.
Dress in the colors of the season. Like “Spring colors” for Spring. “What are Spring colors? A Spring seasonal color palette is full of warm and bright shades like poppy red, daffodil yellow, and tangerine orange. Some of the neutral Spring colors are ivory, cream, camel, and clearer browns.”
**Problems** Wind and posing can boldge clothing to make you look heavyset looking, please be carful on bigger clothing than needed for photos. They should be form fitting to your correct sizes.
If you sweat a lot. (Colors to pick)
Ask yourself this question, When is my session? You may say, “Summer” June/July Ok, so now ask yourself how hot will it be for an afternoon session. Panama City Beach is (89 to 102) degrees in the summer from late May through late August. It’s extremely important to understand we all sweat, and you do not want any sweat marks showing in the photos. We don’t edit out sweat spots free of charge.
If you sweat a lot, you will want an afternoon (After 4:00pm cst) session; it’s a bit cooler then. (Clothing that doesn’t show as much sweat marks) are as followed, White, almost any dark colors, dark navy blue and black won’t show wet stains that bad.
At all cost, light grays, light blues, and bright colors are the worst options for hiding sweat, and they’ll definitely show the world that you can’t stand the heat.”
Summer is the time to use the “vacation look, it’s summer, I’m in Florida look” Females, big hats, white sundresses, Men, khaki shorts, white button-up polo shirts, and flip-flops. Think beach casual and comfortable. If you feel comfortable, you will look comfortable too.
Winter sessions in Florida can get cold, so dress as you’d like, be sure to have warm clothing on hand if needed. Temperatures range from 40 to 72 degrees. Also, it’s ok to have a jacket or sweater in the photos too.
