a few weeks before a photo session, I always get this question from clients. “What do we wear?!”. I admit it is a very important question. It seems silly, but the right outfit or set of outfits can completely make a session go from great to outstanding. I struggle with it my self! I had my own family photos done last night by a dear friend and college and spent most of the day shopping for the ever picky pink sized diva and her picky papa.
There are a million different ways to dress a family for holiday photos. Personally I prefer bright colors and lots of texture, but that suits my loud boisterous family. When picking outfits you have to pick something that works for you and your family. If you want more formal photos that is great, if you are more comfortable in jean make it happen! Hello my family is a jeans family, I get wanting to be comfortable! So to help out I am featuring a little style guide put together initially by my friend Michelle. As usually it is important for a family to coordinate, but not match exactly. Sorry no matching white polos with faded blue jeans, I veto that! Having a similar color palette is really helpful. I think the color palettes & texture options would work on most any family.
I hope these help!
Accessories are always fun especially when they bring out kids personalities. I love scarves & cute tights in the set above!
and as always if you have questions just ask me! I am always happy to walk through options prior to a session. I think it is all of our goals to come out of a session looking our best, and clothes are just a part of that.
