You can ask your photographer, but with 2 hours of time, I would do 2, at the most 3, outfits.

I’m not thrilled with any of them. The pink dress makes you look larger than you are.

If you are wearing the camo outfit, I would accessorize the white dress more girly- with heels and jewelry rather than boots.

The grey wrap sweater would look great with skinny jeans and heels.

The wrap with the big buttons is also cute but makes you look larger.

The long white dress would work with a cute cropped sweater or a moto jacket over top.

I really like the ivory lace dress!  The wrap sweater is cute too.

I would choose two outfits that you feel amazing in. One per hour, photos take a long time and changing will take up time from snapping the pics. The short white lace dress was my favorite of them all, the long white one is too beachy. Agree with pp the pink dress just does not flatter you properly, and the jean look looks way too casual like something you would throw on to run errands.   take yourself to the mall and treat yourself to some perfect outfits that you love and feel confident in! What about a chambray button down and a cream skater skirt? That would look great for your theme.

I’d go with 2 outfits for 2 hours. I LOVE the long white dress and think it makes you look super slim! I’d pair it with the skinny brown belt and a jean jacket or crop sweater. The other outfits are cute but a little too casual, they kinda look like you just came from the mall and may translate to “frumpy” in pics. I’m sorry, the blush dress is pretty but it’s just not hugging you in the right spots. I dont think it’ll photograph well. Do you have any dressier tops that you can dress down a bit with jeans and cardigan? That’s what I wore for one of our outfits changes and LOVED how it came out.

i have no suggestions but I’d like to ask where you got dress #2 and the last dress as well 😀 We are similar sizes and I too find it hard to find clothes that flatter my figure and translate nicely to photographs. 

#2 and #5 are my favorites on you as well.

I second the chambray shirt and cream skater skirt suggestion–it will be very flattering and photograph well.  Love that you’re doing the duck hunting gear–such a cute idea!

I was planning on 2 outfits, but my photographer told me the night before to have a backup just in case. So the night before I rummaged through our closet and pick another outfit for both of us. Well, I ended up loving the pictures in that outfit the best out of all of them! I also agree with the heels. I wore a pair of red heels in my pics and they made for some awesome pics. I climbed all over things and went through mud in them – it was totally worth it for some awesome pics.  I did 2 casual outfits – button down blouses with jeans for both sets. And a skirt and cardigan for the dressier outfit. If you don’t want to do heels, I would try to find a pair of dressier riding boots that are still good for outdoors but look a little dressier to go with your dresses.

My favourite is the white lace short dress, but I agree with the PP who suggested different shoes. I don’t think it needs altering, your arms look fine and I think that dress suits your figure more than any of your other suggestions. I actually think the shorter sleeves and hemlines are looking much nicer on you than the jeans and cartigan outfit. 

The colour of the blush dress is super lovely, but I don’t think it looks as flattering in pictures.
