That can be used over and over again are hard to find. I feel like before I discovered Pink Blush, I was choosing dresses that I would wear once, and then they would just sit in my closet for years. Once I discovered this brand, it quickly became my go-to for dresses that I could wear to family pictures and then also wear them during my everyday life. As a professional photographer, I wanted to give some tips ahead of the fall photo shoot season, so that you can feel like the confident woman that you are! Here are some tips on finding your perfect photo shoot dress with Pink Blush!
Find the style that works best for your body
My best style is an empire waist – this works for me because the section just below my bust is very small, but my hips are pretty wide. So I like to choose a dress that gathers in the middle. Sometimes the dress on it’s own will draw the eye there, other times I pair the dress with a belt to bring the eyes into the small of my waist instead of the feature that I don’t love so much.
Cover the areas that you’re self conscious of
As a rule of thumb, these are usually your armpits, elbows and sometimes the knees. I don’t usually think knees are distracting, but sometimes, bra straps and armpits can come off as a little bit.. unflattering. Also, if you’ve ever been pregnant – chances are, there are little fat pockets near where your arm meets your torso. As a photographer, I receive requests from tons of women to “photoshop” their arms to be smaller to get rid of that little area, for me – I like to get the perfect shot in-camera and so I try to refrain from offering additional retouching because it’s just not authentic (and it costs more money to the client.)
Dressing your newly shaped body can be quite tough, the size charts at Pink Blush are very helpful, and their dresses were made to stretch to accommodate the changing shape of your body from early pregnancy through the 4th trimester and nursing phase of your motherhood adventure.
Maxi dresses are my go-to when it comes to dressing myself for a photo shoot. I always feel like a princess in a maxi dress from Pink Blush. This is mainly because my children like to tell me that I look like one, and my heart basically just explodes from there haha.
