I analyze your best colors to bring out your own personal glow.

Today I am featuring Jasmine, mother of adorable Kingston (who you will see in the photos), and owner of Golden Sole Photography. I love the natural settings she uses for her photos. If you are in the New York area (or want her to come to your area), definitely hit her up. She expects to be shooting more next year once the weather warms up a bit so if you have an event planned for next year, or are expecting a little one, let her know now!

Jasmine calls her style “timeless eclecticism”. Let’s check out her hilarious interview:

What color do you wear the most? Now that I’ve tipped the scales I tend to wear lots of black but I normally wear corals, cobalts, yellows, pinks, red, Gold and prints. Lots and lots of animal prints.

What color do you wear the least? white, pastels… basically easter colors, newborn colors etc

What color do you feel sexy in? is Leopard print a color? if not then red second to that is gold. Get me a gold freekum dress and ooohweee

What color do you get the most compliments in? I think i scare too many people off so i don’t really get complimented much. quick office poll reveals red.

Let’s look at Jasmine in cool colors first.

Now, let’s look at Jasmine in warm colors.

Can you see a difference? Especially in the last 2 photos? Mm-hmm.

Jasmine is an Autumn. Look how she glows in the mustard yellow and coral orange. Those 2 photos were dead giveaways. The dead giveaway in the cooler photos was the gray. That plus the ash-brown (which is a cooler brown) hair color are washing Jasmine out completely to blah-ville. In the other cool photos, the colors are not doing anything for her. Jasmine is doing all the work herself while the colors sit on her and don’t go grocery shopping or pay rent. Even in red, she doesn’t look bad but the attention definitely goes to the red on Jasmine as opposed to Jasmine in red.

Jasmine’s interview give clues to her Autumn-ness (shut up) as well. She is attracted to bright colors and animal prints. She just needs to go more with the warmer brights for Autumns and less with the cobalts and pinks. Red is fine as long as she goes warmer with it. Did y’all see how crunk she got daydreaming about a gold freakum dress? Mm-hmm. Autumn all day. Jasmine was terrified I would tell her to ditch animal print, but I have good news for her! Avoid zebra print and the rest of the animal print kingdom is yours! Leopard, yas; tiger, yas; snake, yas (as long as there’s a browner background to the print).

Jasmine’s consultation included a shopping list where I give her specific colors to look for and avoid. She will be stunting in her customized Autumn list in no time!

Let’s do one more side-by-side comparison so you can see the difference between Jasmine in a cool color and in a warm color:
