What to Wear for a Family Photo Session
You thought choosing a date and location would be the hard part. Then it hits you, what will I wear? What will we all wear? It’s difficult to put together a flattering outfit for yourself, but putting together outfits for the whole family that look good together seems insurmountable. Here’s the good news. I got you.
I personally like outfits that seamless blend into the surroundings. What I mean by that is the color tones are the same as the surrounding tones. If you’re in a glowing field at sunset, the colors will be soft. So, you can wear medium to softer colors. The beach is another example of a soft color tone.
There are so many different directions you can go with soft color tones, but today I want to highlight dessert rose colors. This means muted pink and purple in combination with cool blues will be perfect. You can highlight with a soft mustard yellow or just khaki.

I’ve been putting together quite a few mock-ups lately for my clients. When you hire me to photograph your family, I love to work with you to choose a location that fits your style and compliment that with clothing. The perfect blend of color and texture can bring so much to a photo. Not only does it show your personal style, but it adds interest and draws you in.
This mock-up was made for a family with 2 little girls who are doing their photo session at one of my urban locations. I wanted to create a holiday look without too much fuss. I also love the gold and navy against red brick.
Mock-ups are meant as inspiration, meaning I don’t expect my clients to run out and buy each piece that I put on the board. But, it will give them some ideas to run with…whether it’s the color palette, the use of texture or how to work with details and patterns.
