What to Wear for Your Family Portrait Session:

Tip #1: Discuss the family portrait together with the entire group. Your family portrait should convey a sense of your family’s personality. Talk about possible color schemes, settings and poses. Feel free to discuss these with me too prior to your session. I want you to {LOVE} your images.

Tip #2: Choose clothing that fits with the setting of the portrait. If you are having your portrait taken on the beach, summer clothing is appropriate. Make sure to dress for the weather. Layers are great, because then you have additional looks easily and they add depth to your images.

Tip #3: Coordinate colors. Everyone in the family portrait should wear colors that meld well together. Some families choose to match their colors exactly. While this is not necessary, you do need to ensure that all the clothing colors complement each other.
