Yayy!! You booked a photography session for your family! Next step - choose the outfits! This can sometimes be overwhelming but we are here to help! Here is our guide to choosing the best outfits for your fam!
OUR FAMILY OUTFIT TIPS & TRICKS
Stick to neutral tones like blush, white, cream, light blue, tan, etc.
Choose softer fabrics like linen & cotton
Choose mom's outfit first, such as a dress or a romper then coordinate around her colors
Dad is suggested to wear chino type of pants or shorts and a button up shirt
Focus on colors that go together rather than match completely
Add accessories like headbands, hats, bows, blankets, etc.
Fun patterns and textures like Aloha shirts work too BUT be sure not to wear small stipe patterns as they do not photograph well digitally
When in doubt select one patterned outfit for a single person in the family and then pull colors from that pattern to dress everyone else in solid colors to coordinate.
Tennis shoes look a little odd. In fact, please don't bring nice sandals to the beach! Sand is pretty good at getting everywhere. We suggest barefoot or strap on sandals.
Bring a change of clothes or backup shirt/bottoms for little ones and a towel. Someone inevitably gets a bit wet and sandy from the ocean sprays or surprise dips in the ocean!
