It can often be difficult figuring out what to wear for a family session! Should you match, coordinate, mix patterns? Well, we are here to help alleviate some of that stress!

When dressing for a family session, here are some things you should take into consideration when choosing your outfit:

simplify. simplify. simplify.

When selecting your clothes for a photo session, a great rule of thumb is simple is always better! Avoid bold colors and pieces that could date your photos. Prints and patterns can be cute, but try to stay away from anything too busy as it may be distracting in the photos.

The same goes for makeup and accessories. You want to keep it simple, natural, and true to your style.

don’t be too matchy

When planning outfits for groups in a family session, try to coordinate outfits without matching completely. Families should keep within a similar color scheme, patterns and level of formality. In other words, try not to have one person dressed in a business suit, while everyone else is more casual in jeans.

feel free to change

Unsure of what outfit will photograph best? No problem! Bring a couple of options to the session! We would be happy to help with the selection, and get you in the perfect outfit for your desired look.
