What to Wear

I always get asked, “What do we wear?” While there is no simple answer there are a couple tips I can offer.

I always say, “Coordinate. Don’t match.” Pick a main color and then incorportate 2-3 other colors (white, gray, brown & blacks don’t count…consider them freebies) and don’t be afraid to mix up the patterns.  Adding a touch of a bold color or fun pattern (say in a scarf, a fun necklace or shoes) can add a fun and unexpected element. Need help picking a color scheme? Head on over to Design Seeds.  Below are some of my favorite color schemes (all found on Design Seeds). Yes, I have a thing for blue/beachy colors. 🙂


More ideas can be found on my What to Wear Pinterest Board.  There’s lots of mustard & blue color schemes on there.

Things to avoid? Avoid neons, graphic printed shirts and anything with a really small pattern. Some say to avoid horizontal stripes….I don’t know….I think pregnant bellies look super cute in stripes!

Regardless of everything the most important part is that you wear something that makes you feel good. If you feel amazing, it will show through in your pictures. This is especially important for moms (myself included). We tend to focus on everyone else and then throw our outfits together at the last moment. Don’t do that. Plan ahead. Make sure you feel comfortable and amazing (since you are)!

    Hi Lorena!
    I live in Katy and I’m interested in doing a cake smash for my son!
    He turns one on October 22. Do you have any availability in October? If so, please let me know what is included in a cake smash session with you (do you or I supply the cake) and whether we have time to do some outdoor family pictures as well.

    Thank you! Your work is very beautiful!
