When it comes to choosing the perfect wardrobe for your family photoshoot most people struggle. That's why I put together this easy-to-read list to help you get organized and get the best results for your photos.
Coordinating is timeless. Please choose 2-3 main colors, and maybe one accent pop of color. Mixing stripes and florals with plaids and tweeds is ok! Only simple patterns can create heirloom products that last for generations.
Expression is important. I want to see your personality through your wardrobe.
Purchase clothes that FIT well. When clothing fits well, it is more flattering and looks completely put together. Baggy clothes do not look good.
Shoes are a very important part of your wardrobe.
Layer, layer, layer. Texture is key! Belts, scarves, hats, cardigans, etc...
To get the flow going, start with one outfit that you really like. From there, build on it for everyone else.
Solid colors always work well, and classic variations of those colors. Yellow (mustard), red (maroon/brick), and blue (navy/royal).
Choose your outfit based on your portrait location.
I always recommend keeping your hair simple. When in doubt, wear it down and smooth or curl it.
Women should wear a little more makeup than they usually would.
Avoid small stripes and dots, as they may warp in camera.
If you are unsure, send me a picture of the clothes you chose for your family to wear.
