What to Wear on a Makeover Photoshoot

Here are some great ideas for my makeover portrait photoshoots

I have made this list of the many things you may want to consider wearing to your photoshoot with a makeover at Atherton Photography Studio,

My studio is ideally placed for travel from Manchester, Bolton, Wigan and Warrington.

What to wear is always your choice and it’s your photo session, you set the tone and anything goes, within reason.

Costume ideas for a photoshoot

If you’re looking or thinking of something that is not on this list then don’t worry, these are just suggestions in case you have any brain fog, you are welcome to go ahead with your own thoughts:

Posh Frocks and Dressed to Kill

Dig deep and search the wardrobes or let your fingers do the walking and start that internet shopping. Better still, you now have an excuse to have a day in retail therapy.


Let’s have a Party!

Pull out the party dress, all that glitters is not gold but I will make you shine!

Relive your Wedding Day!

If you’re recently married and didn’t get the images you wanted or you just want some more, now is the ideal time to slip that beloved dress back on.

The Vintage Look

Ever fancied going back in time to see what you may have looked like and get a professional photograph that can be edited in that style too if you want?

The Bond Girl Look

Get those formal dresses out as you would if you were escorting Mr Bond himself in his tuxedo, maybe you want to bring him with you, that’s fine too. Smart with mystique.
