What to wear for family portraits
A beautiful family portrait is a fun project and getting everyone involved gives a deeper connection and emotions towards the final product. Here are some tips what to wear for your family photography:
1. Plan ahead.
Once you book your session, start thinking of the clothes right away. You may think certain clothes will fit your kids or that one dress is clean. If you wait until the day of or day before you may run into an issue of clothes not fitting, being dirty or need to be dry cleaned.
2. Think classic.
These photos will be hanging on your walls and treasured for years to come. By choosing simple, classic clothes you will help give your images a timeless feel.
3.Coordinating colors, but not necessary matching.
While white shirt and blue jeans is still a popular classic look, why not have some fun picking a couple of matching colors and choose clothes that will fit in this color scheme.
4. Say no to characters.
Yes, your little one may love their Toy Story shirt but you may want to skip it for the family photo session. Characters or cartoons on shirts can be pretty distracting.
5. Look at your home decor.
Do you like bright colors? Neutrals? If you will be hanging these photos in your house you want to make sure the colors of your clothes go with the color scheme of your home.
6. Don't forget accessories.
Accessories not only add to your outfit but they can be fun to use in photos. Ties, hats, scarves which are easily exchangeable can add touches to the photos.
