What to Wear | Spring 2014 Guide
Colors Of The Rainbow
I am excited to share with you my Spring 2014 what to wear guide. Lot’s of great color pops and textures for your Spring photo session with Heleyna Holmes Photography. Check it out!
In ancient times, the creation of purple dye was an incredibly lengthy, expensive process. Purple garments became a symbol of wealth and nobility, even royalty; and were sought after world-round. Although violet is now far easier to come by, the color is still associated with its royal roots. A violet-themed portrait session exudes playful sophistication and looks great on camera! Small accents of purple, such as scarves and accessories, can also liven up and otherwise muted palette!
Indigo – or deep blue – is a rich, exceedingly popular color which looks beautiful in almost any setting. Outfits with blue elements create a sense of calm and quiet – perfect for a more introverted family or natural backdrops. Blue can be dressed up or down to fit your tastes, and can be used either as a main color or accenting in your outfits.
Nothing says fresh and new quite like the color green! Green comes in a wide array of shades, ranging from a yellowish, pea-like hue all the way to turquoise! Green looks beautiful combined with earth tones, and therefore makes a wonderful choice for outdoor shoots and backdrops of wood and stone. Even small accents of green, such as jewelry, scarves, or shoes, look wonderful with whites and tans.
Ah, yellow! The color of happiness, of light and sunshine. Yellow is a wonderful
color to wear in outdoor, buttery natural-light shoots, and looks amazing on
camera! Although yellow can be difficult for some to wear because of its tendency to wash out skin tones, patterns with yellow or a single yellow garment in an otherwise neutral palette adds wonders to your images. Adding yellow florals, jewelry, or accents also helps to make your photos go “POP!”. We love yellow!
Orange is a tangy, optimistic color that demands attention! Strong, joyful, and happy, adding orange to your photography session is always a hit on camera. Families with a more extroverted nature might enjoy orange-themed outfits. Orange also looks wonderful in urban settings, such as against concrete, brick, and stone.
Red is one of, if not the, strongest of colors in the rainbow. A symbol of power, passion, blood, and love, red is a bold and striking color for any session. Since red is truly a brilliant, attention-grabbing color, we recommend peppering your outfit with red accents instead of making red the main color for all garments. Pairing red with denim or darker neutral tones makes for striking images that create lasting impressions on your wall.
