100 Outfits Of The Day, woot-woot! The OOTD has come a long way from shooting in the den, the living room, the backyard, and to outdoor public venues. Today’s OOTD is best described as simple elegance. If you want to up the oomph of a simple outfit, add faux fur and some good accessories, take a peek…
When I tell you it was fa-reezing on this shoot, I am not exaggerating, but we made the most of it! This vest is so simple but when you add the faux fur hood, this outfit becomes something special. I paired the vest with a simple black sweater, black leggings, black boots, and some classic accessories – leather satchel, leather gloves, and a cool pair of aviators. There is nothing like an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks!

5 Tips For A Good Pic
1 – Plan your outfit in advance. It sounds like common sense, but sometimes an outfit just doesn’t pan out or look the same off the hanger due to poor fit, odd color combo, or the worst, tight shoes. Think about the outfit from head to toe, then try it on, with the accessories to make sure it flatters not flops.
2 – Natural light is your friend. Good ole sunlight. Try to shoot earlier in the day or just before dusk to achieve that crisp, golden shot. An overcast day works well too.
3 – Keep moving, dance, walk or even skip. A subject in motion is more interesting and looks less staged or posed, more natural.
4 – Take a lot of shots to increase the chances of having multiple “money shots.” We take well over 100 shots per shoot.
5 – Have fun, be confident, be silly, don’t take the process too seriously and the pictures will reflect your best self.
In 2016 I had the good fortune to find talented natural light photographer Gianne Demeritte. She is technically competent and is skilled at selecting the perfect backdrop that utilizes light, angles, and shadows to compose the best shot. But what she has done for me is build my confidence as a model, yes I said model. Being plus-size, I have not been all that comfortable with OOTDs, but Gianne has really helped me understand photography and how to work my body type in front of the camera. GDemeritte Photography specializes in maternity, weddings, lifestyle, family, newborns, kids and senior portraits. Click on the link below to learn more about this rising star.
