Photoshoot Help!

Alrighty. I have a friend at my barn who is pretty much a professional photographer, or at least she is super duper good. Tomarrow she's doing a photoshoot from 11 till whenever she's done with people. We each get 15-30 minutes. She's charging $10 and we have to bring our own cd so se ca give s the pictures. Its the last nice day of the year {around 15 degrees celsius} and she said we could dress pretty, makeup and all. What should I wear or bring to wear? I want these pictures to be good, they're gonna go to the owner of the mare I'm training. What would be really good to wear? I've seen people in everything from riding attire to dresses. Just to show you her skill I've included a few of her pictures from this past year.

I've done 2 photo shoots with my horses, one in the winter. I have seen people wear dresses but for me that was way too much, this is what I wore:
- light Jeans (looks better next to a dark horse)
- two white tops
- a long sleeve blouse on top (I had a coral one next to a dark horse and I know it's chilly outside but I just liked it better this way)
- and normal shoes, mine had a 1 inch heel, just to make it look a little more formal.
- and for some photos I wore a down-jacket.

And another tip: Take the best bridle you have (maybe a show bridle), clean it and use it for the photos, it looks more professional, more formal and just a little better than a normal halter in my opinion. :)
