Plaids and layers work perfect for behind & in front of a camera!

MaryJanes & Galoshes has an extension to it aside from this blog, which is MaryJanes & Galoshes Photography.This would be the reason why Galoshes {myself} has stepped into contributing to posts, MJ is so busy editing photos! Taylor {the MaryJanes of the two of us} finds fashion easy. She sees clothes and accessories as art in a form that she just pulls all together. She has style, thus, assigning "MaryJanes" to her is self explanatory. Me on the other hand, Galoshes sums it up! Jeans, T-shirt and barefoot whenever possible. Taking into consideration that we do photography together, I need to come up with a style that allows me to work setting up props for photo sessions, yet look put together when the client arrives. This didn't come easy to me, and still doesn't, but it's allot easier with inspiration boards! MaryJanes and I also do inspiration boards for clients, our boards alway seem to include layers and plaids, they just photograph well!

I like 90’s inspired styles with an effortless, laid back attitude. Since I sometimes start setting up props in the morning, {couches, chairs & suitcases} I start to get warm as I set up. I like Heritage plaids and flannels, perfect for layering, buttoning up, or tying around your waist yet still looking put together. Clothes that let me work, peel off layers then dress them back up just before the clients arrive. I love their small roll on perfumes too, perfect size to fit into my pocket to dab on just before our clients arrive!

 Hollister Co has "wish Lists" that allow you to easily add pieces of your wardrobe to it to review how well everything works together. This is a great thing for me as I can show Taylor prior to purchasing to make sure I picked the best looks for working and appearance. She's like my own personal wardrobe consultant!
