What to Wear for Your Photoshoot

Updated: Mar 4

What to wear?

The photographer's locked in, the location's perfect, and the date's marked on the calendar. But now comes the question that can leave even the most organized feeling a bit flustered: what to wear?

Don't worry, these precious family memories shouldn't come with a side of wardrobe stress. While these photos will undoubtedly become cherished heirlooms, picking the perfect outfits doesn't have to be a complex puzzle.

Don’t Match Head to Toe 

Forget the outdated internet advice that paints black as the holy grail and white as the ultimate foe. Blanket statements like those can do more harm than good. Instead, let's ditch the old rules and explore tips to help you achieve a cohesive, timeless look that perfectly captures your family's unique personality against the backdrop of the great outdoors. Happy and comfortable families lead to the best smiles and most treasured memories!

Color Palettes

Ditch the Denim Denims: Embracing Color Palettes for Your Family Photoshoot

We all know the photos: a lineup of family members in identical denim and black shirts. While intended as a simple solution, this uniform approach can often feel forced and lackluster.

Consider embracing the power of color palettes.

Choose your temperature. Do you envision warm and inviting tones like browns, tans, and beiges, or a cooler and more sophisticated feel with blues, grays, and blacks? Opting for one primary temperature creates a foundation for visual harmony.

Less is More

For photos that shine, ditch the eye-catchers: loud patterns, logos, and neon colors (think hot pink or fluorescent green). They can clash with your chosen palette and steal the focus from the real stars – your family! Remember, less is often more when it comes to accessories, too. Let your smiles and genuine connections take center stage.

Final Tips

  • For women, flowy dresses can be a great choice. They add movement and interest to your photos.

  • Men generally look best in button-down shirts or polos.

  • If possible, opt for closed-toe shoes. Unless we're on the beach, in which case no shoes is the way to go!

Remember, the most important thing is to feel comfortable and confident in your clothing. With a little bit of thought and preparation, you can ensure that your outfits contribute to the success of your photo session.
