•Wear a beach casual style for your next beach portrait. Beach casual
is khaki shorts, Capri's, skirts or pants. Your top should be light in
color with no patterns like flowers or stripes. If the beach portrait
will include more than one person then you should coordinate on the
color of your blouses and shirts. It is a good idea to wear the same
colors because this will bring more focus to the faces in your beach
portrait. Beach casual also means minimal jewelry and bare feet. If
the weather is cooler, then long sleeves and pants are okay. Women
need to think about their hair style too. Beach weather can sometimes
get breezy. Plan ahead wearing a hairstyle that is suitable for windy
•Blue is the perfect color for beach portrait outfits. Any shades of
blue will go well with the surrounding scenery, making your beach
portrait that much more harmonious. Blues come in different shades, so
if taking family or group portraits, try to coordinate your blue
colors. Stonewashed denim shirts are a popular choice for beach
portraits. Wear blue jean shorts or pants. Keep your feet bare and
your jewelry selection minimal.
•Wear a crisp white shirt at your beach portrait session. The white
colors of your shirt will put the emphasis on the people in the
portrait and not the clothes. Button-down shirts, polo shirts and even
plain white t-shirts will add an ethereal quality to your portrait.
However, not everyone has to wear the same style shirt. You could let
everyone's personality shine through with their white shirt choice.
Add to the simplicity and drama of your portrait by wearing white
pants, shorts and skirts, too.
