What do I wear to my family portrait photography session?
One of the most stressful things for clients can be figuring out what to wear to a photography session.
I have developed a super easy, stress free formula that works really well for clients to put together for themselves, and their family for their black and white portrait photography session.
Mums so often will choose outfits for their baby and children first and other in the family and put themselves last. The truth is your baby and children will look cute no matter what they wear, am I right?
For family photography sessions, mums should choose their outfit first. An important goal of mine as a portrait photographer is to make mum look and feel beautiful.
I suggest wearing a soft coloured, flowy dress. Maxi dresses look great. You may not always wear these in everyday life, but they photograph beautifully and give your black and white portrait a soft and feminine look.
Remember to keep it simple. You definitely don’t want complicated straps and outfits that don’t fit or are uncomfortable. Keep it relaxed, simple and comfortable so the focus can be on you and your family and the connection you have with each other.
Choosing the right colour palette, even though photographs are in black and white are still important. This will ensure we achieve a cohesive look, flow and beautiful textures of fabric in each of the portraits.
Solid colours work better than busy patterns, logos and stripes. Some checks are great as long as they are not too bold. When coordinating outfits think about what colours you would like. Choose 1 – 2 colours and then every thing else should be neutrals – denim is great as it adds texture, white, tan or grey all look great. A beautiful colour palette for a family photography session as an example is blue as the main colour and mix with one floral piece and include shades of mint and coral.
Following these suggestions will most definitely have you looking gorgeous, feeling relaxed and perfectly styled, ready for you family black and white family photography session.
