What to Wear on a Family Photo Shoot?

I have had people people ask about what to wear when scheduling a family portrait session. There are many different options depending on your style. There is the matching approach, two traditional options are jeans with black shirts or khakis with white shirts. Another option if matching is not your thing is to have every one wear colors that go together but don't "match" such as bold or pastel colors or have everyone wear different shades of the same color.

Other tips:

  • Avoid loud patterns and large logos that can be distracting
  • Think about location, if a shoot is taking place outdoors wear clothes that you are comfortable sitting on the ground in
  • Hands and feet, often we take photos of holding hands and when possible bare feet in the photos always looks great
  • colors don't need to match but they should coordinate 

 

If you want a second opinion on a clothing choice feel free to ask me about it in our pre session consultation.
