What to Wear for Your Family Photo Session
What you wear is key for a successful session. Clothing complements who you are individually, or as a family, speaks to the environment in which the session is taking place, and coordinates with the home where final images will be displayed. Your style should be as unique as you are, so we’ve put together some clothing advice for a creative, comfortable session.
I encourage moms and teens to have their makeup done by our hair and make up artist. It’s important that everyone feels great about their look. Happy people make great photographs!
If it’s an indoor session, choose soft, warm, solid neutral colors. Outdoors, you can opt for bolder colors, earth tones or contrasting, such as big stripes paired with a solid color.
Textures, rich colors and lots of layers photograph fabulously! Accessories, such as hats and scarves, are also really fun and can bring out personality – as well as give many different looks to one session.
The goal is to create a cohesive look while being careful not to make anyone conform to a style that is not their own. As every mother knows, our kiddos have very different personalities! And we want them to shine! I suggest beginning with a color palette and then developing each style individually.
