Family Sessions What to Wear

October 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Fall is in the air and family photo session season is here!  The most asked question is "what should we wear?"  Well, I'm here to help you out.  I want to make sure you look and feel your best for your session.  This post will help you come up with the perfect combination!

1. Layers
Layers create visual interest and will keep you warm and cozy.  Think tights, cardigans, jackets, and scarves.

2. Color
Choose two main hues you love, and develop your color scheme around them. Use the brightest color — also known as the accent color — sparingly. Patterns are ok, choose one or two family members to wear a pattern and everyone else choose a color that ties everyone together.

3. Accessories!
Jewelry, hair bows, flowers, scarves, boot socks are all fun additions that add texture and interest to photos.

4. BE YOU!
This is the most important tip.  Wear something that you like and are comfortable in. If you wear something that is itchy. too big or small, it will show in your expressions, we don't want that. ;-)  Have fun!

If you are having trouble coordinating your outfits, don’t worry, I am here to help!  Good luck and I look forward to seeing what you have picked out!

"Your beauty is beyond compare with flaming locks of auburn hair"

Kendall could not have been more beautiful. Her session started with hair & makeup and proceeded with some great shots in the studio. We moved outside and walked around the West Bottoms and found some awesome locations. I had so much fun with Kendall and her family! Thanks for coming to visit me!  Enjoy!
