What Should I Wear for a Family Photo Session?

Clients who have confirmed their sessions with me will get a detailed digital Style Guide (which looks like a fashion magazine!).


Here're some general guidelines for everyone:


The first step to a successful family photoshoot is to have everyone wear color coordinated outfits. If the photographer isn't preparing you for this, then he/she might just be an inexperienced one, unfortunately.,


-Start with where the photos will be displaying. If the photos will be hanging on your living room or bedroom, choose the colors that would compliment nicely with your home color scheme.

-Start with one person's outfit.

-Wear coordinated, accent colors.

-Go for softer color tones, pick 2-4 colors that would fit the theme color.

-Pick simple and classic outfits to the images a timeless feel, the photos may be hanging on your living room for years to come.

-Accessorize (but not excessive) to express your personality.


-Outfits that have horizontal strips, logos, characters and graphics.

-Matching styles, or everyone will end up wearing the same thing.

-All white, all black, or all plain outfits for both couples or family members.

-Neon colors like lime, neon green.
