Layers

Layering various pieces creates visual interest without visual distraction. Especially for field sessions, layering also allows us to dress up or down, depending on our unpredictable Chicago weather. 

We like to encourage you to bring as many layers as you would like, and we can review them together ahead of your session if you are in doubt.

  • cardigans
  • shawls
  • scarves
  • boot socks
  • tights
  • knit hats
  • overshirts

Texture

Soft, beautiful textures are a visual inspiration in all of our sessions. Keeping a monotone, neutral palette enhanced with a variety of textures and layers promotes a calm, serene, gentle image while complimenting your own style. 

Textures we love:

  • lace
  • waffle
  • thermal
  • soft cotton
  • cashmere knit
  • cable knit
