How to Color Your World

Updated: Sep 28, 2021

One of the most common questions photographers receive ahead of a lifestyle or maternity shoot is "what color should I wear?" Sure, we've told you that solids photograph better than patterns, but what about the colors that are best to wear in each season?

Look no further. Below are some tips for picking the right color for your next photo shoot. Since Fall has arrived, let's start there!


Per Michael Kors, THE SIGNATURE color of Fall 2021 is Berry. It's very rich and it dazzles when it's contrasted by changing leaves and warm fall backdrops. In addition to Berry, here are some other colors to consider:

  • Rust or Burnt Orange

  • Mustard Yellow

  • Dark Purple

  • Navy

  • Dark Green

  • Browns

  • Beige


Pastel all day long because spring has sprung! For example:

  • Blush Pink

  • Aqua

  • Pale Peach

  • Soft Yellow

  • Baby Blue

  • Light Gray

  • Lavender


If there was ever a time to express yourself and celebrate the weather through bright, pops of colors, this is it. (Just to clarify, I am NOT talking about neon! Please put that away!) Showcase your personality through this color wheel:

  • Bright Orange

  • Bold Red

  • Magenta

  • Royal Blue

  • Turquoise

  • Yellow

  • White


When getting ready for that holiday photo, here are some great hues that blend beautifully with winter decor:

  • Ruby Red

  • Emerald Green

  • Creme

  • White

  • Black

  • Gray

  • Dark Purple

  • Midnight Blue

My final thought......while it's important to coordinate with other members participating in the shoot, wearing all same color can be just as distracting as too many patterns. Instead, try to select from the same color palette. And if you do end up wearing the same color as another person, have someone wearing another shade stand between you for balance.

Now go find YOUR SIGNATURE color!
