Do you need inspiration when looking in your closet? Well here are some ideas when selecting outfits for your family session. First please don't stress, keep it simple, don't be afraid of color and have fun mix matching! Your family does not need to wear the same color; in fact, I recommend you don't because you will all blend together. You do want to coordinate and below are some great samples of coordinating well. You photos will look amazing when you take the extra effort to coordinate, I promise!
The camera LOVES color so do not be afraid to accent with it if you choose a neutral palette. When I am editing your photos, keep in mind there's not much I can do with everyone dressed in all black or white clothing. The camera LOVES knit too. It adds lovely texture to your photos.
Here is WHAT TO AVOID...logos, large graphics, words and really skinny stripes on shirts. Ladies, I highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes. While I LOVE heels they will only get stuck in dirt and throw you off balance. I suggest you wear closed toe shoes, flats, sandals, wedges or boots. Most locations will have uneven ground so heels will only be a problem.
I found some examples on pinterest that I wanted to pass on to you for inspiration. Sometimes it's easier to have a visual aid to help brainstorm ideas. I hope this proves to be helpful to my families. Have fun coordinating your outfits and remember if you need an opinion I'm only a text away.
