The portrait style guide

Exclusive to Alexis Ralston Photography Clients


YAY!  You’ve booked a session!

Now what?!  Your mind is racing with, “What in the heck am I going to wear?” “Where do I even start?”  “Where is a good place to shop?!”  I get it, and that part is stressful.  But, it doesn’t have to be.  As an ARP client you have access to my Portrait Style Guide which was designed to assist you in the outfit planning process and take out all of the guess work.  It’s not my intention to just have you “figure it out.”  Found a few dresses but not sure which works best?  Text me!  Or shoot it over in an email.  I’m happy to help you every step of the way!  Need me to send you over some links of outfits I recommend?  Absolutely!  This part is FUN to me and I’d rather be here to lend a helping hand than have you wish you had more direction. 

A good tip is to start with your outfit first.  Once you’ve decided on your outfit as a base, it’s much easier to coordinate everyone else from that one piece rather than picking outfits randomly and praying that it works out (I’m totally guilty).

So lets get this party started!  Some of my favorite places to shop are:

Lulus  |  ASOS  |  Zara (especially for kids!)  |  Anthropologie  |  Free People Morning Lavender  |  Show Me Your Mumu|  Rent the Runway  |  732.718.9910
