A few of my clients have asked for clothing suggestions for our upcoming Fall Mini Sessions. I put together some tips for dressing your family for photos.
*** Disclaimer: I am the girl who considers gray and beige "colors" in her wardrobe. My pop of color is usually a red lip. If you show up in a white tee shirt and jeans, I'll still think you look great.
1.) Choose a color theme. Keep it simple! I suggest picking 1 or 2 colors that you like from Pantone's fashion color report for fall 2016 and incorporating it into a couple of pieces for your family to wear. (The rest of the pieces should be neutral).
2. ) Mix prints! Don't feel like you need stick to one print... plaids, stripes, polka dots, florals- all are welcome.
3.) Be comfortable. Since we are shooting outdoors at the end of October, dressing for the weather is best. Choose outfits that can have layers. Be sure to choose outfits that are comfortable. Kids will not care if they look cute- they want to be able to move!
4.) Most importantly, be true to yourself. My passion is capturing the hearts of my clients, even in more traditionally posed sessions. If you are daring- you can even let your kids pick out their own clothes. We are preserving who they are today.... and sometimes that involves a princess crown or a cape.
I have put together a Pinterest board with some other ideas/looks to help.
Can't wait to see all of your smiling faces soon!
