Coordinating outfits for your family photo session can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be! Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect outfits for your session:
CHOOSE A COLOR SCHEME
Start by choosing 2-3 colors that complement each other and will look good in photos. You can also add in some neutral colors like white, black, or gray to balance out the look.
COORDINATE, DON'T MATCH
Avoid dressing everyone in the exact same outfit, as this can look too matchy-matchy. Instead, choose outfits that coordinate well together. You can do this by incorporating different shades of the same color, or by mixing patterns and textures.
KEEP IT CLASSIC
Avoid trendy outfits or clothes with logos or graphics that can look dated in a few years. Stick to classic, timeless styles that will look good for years to come.
CONSIDER YOUR LOCATION
Think about the location of your session when choosing outfits. If you're shooting in a park or natural setting, earthy tones and muted colors will look great. If you're shooting in a city or urban setting, brighter colors and bolder patterns can work well.
Don't be afraid to add in some fun accessories to your outfits, like scarves, hats, or statement jewelry. These can add some visual interest to your photos and show off your personal style.
Above all, make sure you and your family feel comfortable and confident in your outfits. If you're constantly adjusting your clothes or feeling self-conscious, it will show in your photos.
Here are some examples of color schemes that work well for family photos:
Navy blue, cream, and tan
Burgundy, olive green, and beige
Gray, white, and blush pink
Denim blue, khaki, and white
Remember, these are just suggestions! Feel free to get creative and choose outfits that reflect your family's personality and style. And if you need more help or guidance, don't hesitate to reach out to me for advice.
