Picking out the perfect mixture of outfits for your family photography session always seems to be the most complicated part, but it doesn’t have to be. We all want our family photos to look adorably cohesive and hip with outfits that are sure to make any parent envious. With these simple tips and tricks choosing your family’s outfits for photos will be a breeze.
The timeless look of white shirts and blue jeans will give your family photos a classic feel that is sure to stay in style for years to come. Everyone’s own personal style can still shine through in the type of white shirt that they choose, jean fit, and hair style. Don’t worry about different shades of blue jeans, it adds a bit of contrast and doesn’t make the look seem too stagnant.
Adding texture like ruffles, sequence, fur, bows, and tulle is a great way to add some interest to your family photos. The best way to add texture to your outfits is by adding layers like jewelry, leggings, jackets, vests, belts, hats, or bows.
LIMITED COLOR PALETTE
Deciding on a limited color palette of two to three colors is a great way to incorporate prints and make a colorful statement that is sure to allow your family’s personalities stand out in your family photographs.
KEEP YOUR HOME IN MIND
If you are a stickler for making sure that all of the décor in your home matches and looks cohesive it may be important for you to keep that in mind when you’re planning out your family photo outfits. For example if your home is full of blue décor and neutrals putting your entire family in bright greens may not look that great on your walls.
Let your little ones express their personalities and shine in their favorite outfit. By letting them dress themselves it guarantees that your children will feel comfortable and confident throughout the family photo session. Plus it ends up looking super adorable and fun!
POP OF COLOR
Having your entire family dress in neutrals is a great way to make everyone look cohesive and match in photographs, which is great! But if you have a special someone that you want to stand out, like a new member of the family or grandparent, dressing them in a bright color will draw everyone’s attention to them.
As a skilled family photographer it is my job to make sure that you and family look great in all of your photos no matter what you are wearing; so don’t obsess over finding that perfect outfit. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident in whatever it is that you choose to wear.
