When used properly, patterns can make a gorgeous statement in your photograph. Use patterns sparingly, they work best in small doses! Pair patterned clothing with plain colours and limit to one single pattern per shoot please. • DO: Just have one of you in pattern so it doesn't overwhelm the shoot • DON'T: All wear patterns, especially those that don't "connect" well with eachother. Your portraits need to tell a story, so please make sure your clothing doesn't take away from your story ;-)
