What to wear to your mini-sessions: the men

So you tell your significant other you’ve just scheduled a mini-session with me for spring photos…and he totally rolls his eyes, right? It’s ok! I’m here to help! After booking you’ll receive my complimentary style guide that’ll help you have the right tools to ease his eye rolls. 

When you (and him!) look back on your photos you won’t even remember how he whispered under his breath when you told him about getting photos done.  What you’ll see are AWESOME photos of you and your family that you’ll love for all of time.  They won’t just look awesome, you’ll have a GREAT experience on the shoot to change his experience of having photos taken.  Promise.  

I really think having family photos help you love and appreciate your family even more.  We all need a little more of that in our lives, right? 

Did you see my tips about what women should wear to your spring session? And kids

The most important tip for you guy is TAILORED! Tailored pants will make him look like a hot stud. Because it’ll be spring (and super hot in Texas already) you can have him wear a tailored short sleeve shirt.  If your husband is anything like mine, he gets super grumpy when he’s hot.  So just leave the grumpiness at home and have him wear a tailored short sleeve dress shirt (plain colored or very light pattern).  If he doesn’t have a tailored short sleeved one, go for a long sleeved one.  Tailored is just that important.  You can find affordable examples from H&M, Target, and Old Navy.  

Next time you walk by a JCrew store you’ll see the models have several layers on at a time.  This looks really awesome.  Tell him he’s going to look like a hot stud if he does this.  OR – tell him you want him to try this look so that you can see IF he can look better than the models – guys LOVE competition! 

Read these tips here that I provided earlier about how to style your guy.

So only if he will wears a sports coat can these shirts be successfully pulled off.  You also have to look at any other pattern that you have going on in your family’s clothing choices.  But I think these are stylish examples of what your man can wear.  Pair them with tailored (SLIM) pants and brown closed toes dress shoes to look like a hot stud.  Remember – photo sessions are totally ok to beg and borrow clothes and accessories from friends.
