After booking a session one of the most common questions I get asked is: ”So what should we wear?” This is an important question because wardrobe is an important element in your family’s photographs. When picking out clothes for a family session, resist the urge to run out and buy matching white shirts and jeans for everyone. Just remember: matching-bad, coordinating-good!!! Pick a few complimentary colors and select clothes around those colors. Dress comfortably, be yourselves, and have fun with it! Here are some great examples that I got from I Heart Faces and Inspire Me Baby.
Notice a color palette of light blue, tan, white, and navy blue. It all compliments each other and looks great!
Here is another great example. This one is a bit more casual. Notice the neutral color palette of with little pops of color.
Here’s an example with a soft pastel palette- so pretty for spring!!!
And if you are daring, try a more stylized family wardrobe with a retro feel like the one below!
Don’t forget simple accessories, layers are are awesome, and try to select some pieces with texture- these things all add visual interest for your photos!
