I’ve been photographing this family for many years now, and with every session, I find myself wondering how Mom is going to top the outfit and color selections from our last session. But she always does. A custom family photography session is an investment and for most clients, those images are proudly displayed for years – decades even – to come. So it’s important that session outfits not only complement your home decor, but that they reflect your personalities and your own sense of style. Color palettes can range greatly from the very vibrant to something more monochromatic and result in beautiful imagery. Working with 2-3 main colors is often the best idea, and then spreading those out among family members so that everything coordinates but isn’t identically-matched. Speaking of identically-matched: Remember those retro photos from “back in the day” where everyone wore denim and white or black shirts? I’m pretty sure I could dig a few up for you if you don’t.
This palette of maroon, navy and mustards was perfect for our fall setting in the leaves, mixed with plaids and layered textures. Moreover, none of these items were difficult to find in most department stores or online shopping. Working with a 2-3 color palette, the possibilities are literally endless. But if you’re not sure what to wear for family photos, don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered. Literally. All clients receive our guidance on colors, outfits and backgrounds/locations so that everything comes together perfectly. If you haven’t booked your Spring family session, there’s no better time to start planning than now. Give us a shout – we’d love to hear from you!
