Brenda Jean Photography family photo ideas
Below are five “What to Wear” suggestions to help you build a wardrobe for your photo session. These are just suggestions to get you thinking. It is most important for you to feel like you are comfortable and happy with your outfit selection. When you feel good about yourself you are much more likely to take a fantastic photo!!
Matching outfits are overrated… coordinating outfits look natural and give each family member a chance to express themselves a bit differently!
Adding multiple layers to outfits can add interest to your images, and it creates more options during the photoshoot. For example, bring along a cute jacket, a coordinating button-down, a crisp new undershirt… or all of the above!
Cable-knits, ribbed sweaters, denim jackets… they all an extra boost of texture that will add to the feel of your photos.
Accesories can be lots of fun! A cute hat, fun bows or headbands, a cute bag, extra bracelets, etc. can add a touch of flair to any shoot. And remember, just because you bring them doesn’t mean they’ll appear in every photo (unless, of course, you want them to!!!)
Remember, these pictures will most likely be on your walls twenty years from now. Crazy, ultra-trendy patterns or logos can take away from the main focus of your photos: your family. Think long-term and search for classic outfits that will stand the test of time.
