The small but mighty Wardrobe guide for your family shoot in Atlanta

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.

Here is my Basic & easy to understand Wardrobe guide for your next Photo session:

  • 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 the camera.

  • Avoid logos.

  • NO fluorescent!

  • If you are unsure, send me a picture of the clothes you chose for your family to wear.
