So you just scheduled your family photos, now what? You need to figure out what the heck you are going to wear!! I will break it down into a few easy steps on how to pick outfits.
We want you to display your family photos in your home. So think about where these pictures are going to be displayed. Look at the colors and style of that room. Do you have one dominant color in your home? Your outfits should complement, not matchy-match your decor.
I recommend starting your outfits by getting one person set and using them as the anchor. I like to start with Mom. We want her to feel beautiful, confident, and glowing. Pull all remaining colors and accents from her outfit.
Accessories not only add to your outfit but can be fun to use in photos. Necklaces for the kids to play with or hats to hide behind. Family photos are a time to capture who your family is at that time. So consider a fun scarf, cute coat, or stylish hat.
You want to stand out from your background. So not too much green if you are having your session in a forest or too much brown in a ranch or barn. Jewel tones, pastels, and neutrals almost always will work well.
Once you have booked your session, start thinking about what you want to wear for family photos. You may think certain clothes will fit your kids or that one dress is clean. If you wait until the day before or a few days before, you may run into an issue of clothes not fitting, being dirty, or needing to be dry cleaned. Reach out to your photographer! They can help with coordinating with your location. You can even text them some outfit ideas and they will help narrow it down for you.
