Wondering what to wear for your family session? Sometimes picking outfits can be the hardest part of planning for your family photos. I’m here to help!
What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are as a family, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where the final images will be displayed.
Your style should be as unique as your family, so I’ve put together some clothing advice for a creative and comfortable session.
Be sure to plan your outfits completely several days before your session. Here are some general rules for making picture-perfect fashion decisions:
Choose a palette of 3-4 colors and then mix it up! You want a cohesive feel but without being overly ‘matchy-matchy.’ Picture a page in a clothing catalog where everyone coordinates, but nobody stands out more than the rest.
Generally, sleeveless shirts and shorts on adults tend to not flatter, but layered clothing is fabulous!
Take time to plan your accessories ahead of time, too.
Be sure all clothes are clean and pressed and on hangers a few days before your session so we don’t end up with anything wrinkled.
Don’t forget about shoes! Make sure they coordinate and are cleaned up, too.
As always, I’m here to help! I’m happy to help select outfits with you!
