What To Wear - Family Photo Session

This is the fourth post in a series called "What to Wear". This series is designed to help my clients choose the best clothing options for their photo sessions.

This week I am visiting what to wear for a family photo session. I must admit that this one has taken me the longest to put together so far, not simply because there are more people, but it was hard to find something that matched everyone for everyone.

Shopping is hard work! :)

I decided to go with a theme of warm colors. I started off with this cute top for mom in pink, and found a yellow shirt for dad. I opened up the color palette to some browns for the little guy, and found this cute little summery shirt. And good grief... I can not resist those adorable sun dresses for the little girls! So I chose this one in pink and white. I also liked the texture of the dress which will also create visual interest.

Again, notice that everyone's outfits coordinate and are not "matchy matchy". Mom will look great with daughter, son with father, son and daughter, mom and dad, and so on and so forth.

I also threw in the hat for the little boy. Don't be afraid to add some fun accessories to your outfits. Hats, scarfs, and even props like wagons and toys work great for your sessions. This will add a touch of personalization to your session.

Stay tuned for more what to wear posts!
