If you're unsure what to wear for your family portrait session, here are a few tips that might inspire you! Color harmony is one of the most essential elements in a family portrait. Carefully planning your family's wardrobe will make all the difference so let's jump into color!
The first step is to pick your setting. Here at the beach, the sunset brings us lots of beautiful colors. Your clothing should harmonize with your background. Choose clothing that compliments your background by selecting colors similar to your setting or opposite colors on the color wheel.
Choose colors that will compliment your home. Your portraits will hang on your walls for years to come. So, make sure they complement the decor.
Dress mom first! We all know Mom needs to look the best in the family portrait, right? I recommend mom choose her outfit first and then coordinate the rest of the family around the colors in her dress.
Don't be afraid to keep it simple! Jeans, button-up shirts for men and boys, and simple dresses for women and girls always look amazing! You don't all have to wear the same thing. Choose 4 to 5 colors to dress your family in. Choose colors that complement each other and the setting of your portrait session.
Layers are always fun. Jackets, vests, scarves, and other accessories bring some style and flair to the session.
Get comfortable! Choose outfits you feel good in and make your family look their best.
