What to Wear for Your Outdoor Winter Session

1. Bundle Up in Layers:

Embrace the cool weather by layering up with stylish winter essentials. Think cozy sweaters, scarves, and chic jackets. Layers not only add visual interest to your outfit but also keep you warm and comfortable during the shoot.

2. Texture Play:

Introduce texture into your ensemble to add depth to your winter look. Consider incorporating wool, faux fur, or chunky knits for a cozy and visually appealing effect. These textures not only provide warmth but also photograph beautifully.

3. Boots Made for Walking (and Posing!):

Footwear is crucial during winter sessions. Opt for stylish yet practical boots that not only keep your feet warm but also add a polished finish to your look. Consider neutral tones that blend seamlessly with your outfits.

4. Invest in Stylish Outerwear:

If your session involves spending significant time outdoors, invest in a stylish coat that compliments your outfit. Choose a piece that not only keeps you warm between portraits but also adds a layer of sophistication to your overall look.

5. Neutral Tones for Timeless Appeal:

Neutral tones such as whites and creams can create a timeless and elegant look in winter portraits. These colors not only compliment the winter landscape but also provide a classic aesthetic that withstands the test of time.

Extra Tip: Bring a Blanket or Throw:

For an added touch of coziness, bring along a cozy, knitted blanket or throw. It not only serves as a practical accessory to keep warm between portraits but also adds a charming element to your winter portraits.

These 5 tips will ensure that you will be chic & warm for those beautiful winter, snow portraits! If you’d like to take a look at the Pinterest board I send to my clients for loads of curated outfit suggestions click here: for families | for maternity!
