When you start thinking about what to wear for family photos, it's easy to be overwhelmed with all the options. Clothing is very important for your session and really sets the tones for photos!
Here are a few suggestions for what you can wear for your family photos. Hope this helps!
When choosing a dress code for your session, make sure everyone is on the same page. If someone is wearing a dressy outfit and another person is wearing a tee shirt, it really isn’t going to go together. When it comes to clothing options, there is no rule as to whether you should be dressy or casual. It’s all about the look you want and the location you choose for your session.
Pay attention to the details: scarves, hats, shoes, jewelry… these all play a part in making you “look” come together. However, keep in mind that sometime, less is more. Wearing that fun, funky hair clip for the session is awesome, but you don’t want to overpower yourself with accessories because the details can become distracting. The more outfits, shoes and accessories you can bring to the studio the better. Give me more options and you will end up getting better images out of your photo shoot.
But don’t search too hard for something very special, often the simplest garments out of your dresser will be perfect:
Sentimental items are always nice to include in a few shots. Incorporate Grandma’s broach or a vintage toy for a child to play with. The photo becomes a conversation
piece and dearer to your heart.
