What should I wear for my photos?” I hear that question for almost every session! I offer different guides on clothing choices for high school seniors, child and family portraits to help them create the best look to suit their personalities. Today, I wanted to share a few ideas of inspiration for everyone. Family portraits which could be one of the the hardest times to coordinate clothing. Hopefully this information will make it super easy to pick your clothing!

 

For some visual inspiration, take a look at the outfits paired together below. If you have any questions about preparing for your portrait session let me know — we can work together to find clothing that your family looks their best in while being comfortable to create beautiful portraits.

Layering clothing is a fun way to add dimension and texture. Layering also works well to achieve multiple outfits in one session. You can add or remove pieces without doing a full clothing change! And don’t forget the accessories, they bring a look together. Use one or two accessories per person to complete an outfit and make it look polished.

I’m not talking matchy white shirts and jeans or navy polos and khakis, I want your family’s personality to show through in non-uniform and fun clothing choices! How? Pretend like you are creating one large outfit instead of trying to pair multiple outfits together. As silly as it sounds, imagine that all your clothing choices were somehow for one person. If that leaves you stumped, pick a patterned item for one person in your family (say a polka dot dress for your daughter) then select the rest of the family’s clothing from the colors within that first outfit.
