People are always asking us to wear for their photo session… and that’s a good question. There are different colors that do not photograph well and certain things we suggest to steer clear from. Very bright reds and yellows never seem to look good on camera. We tend to say not to wear busy patterns as well. Children, especially newborns, should be sure their clothes are not too big on them. Oversized clothes on a newborn overwhelms their small size and more than likely swallow them up; leaving the parents with a very cute outfit to look at, but no baby.
Family portraits can be a little more stressful when trying to figure out what to wear. Abby and I suggest having a specific color scheme. It’s a good idea to pick 2-3 colors that work well together and have them split between everyone. Accessorizing with hats, scarfs, necklaces, etc. will help make the portrait pop. Also styling your family with accessories and different color schemes is a great way to show everyone’s personality. For example, have everyone wear neutral tones and navy blue, but everyone has a small pop of a bright color along with it- using the accessories as the accent color.
