What to wear to your photo shoot: Dads

When styling a family session, we like to start out with a basic color palette and go from there. It can help to have one “star” in the photos who carries a pattern in their outfit that the rest of the group’s clothing or accessories pulls from, while keeping everyone else’s outfits more simple. Dads can do this with a neutral and a few colorful brights, or try a softer palette that has different tonal ranges of the same shades. (What to wear to your photo shoot: Kids)

What to wear to your photo shoot: kids

Coordinate but don’t match.  Start out with a basic color palette and go from there. You can do this with a neutral and a few colorful brights, or try a softer palette that has different tonal ranges of the same shades. (What to wear to your photo shoot: Dads)





Accessorize … Scarves, hats, flowers in the hair for girls, jewelry, sweaters, vests, jackets, etc. –  Choose your accent colors and fill in outfits with those punches of color in accessories. Show off the kids’ and your unique personality with accessories!
They can also be something that the subjects can interact with … a sassy little tip of the hat, holding the ends of a scarf while running and letting it billow behind you… all these little gestures and ways to interact (and become more comfortable in front of the camera) can be made possible with styling choices.





Shoes matter. Please don’t wear sneakers … unless some funky Converse that go with the feel of the session. Think about coordinating those bright and colorful shoes with other accessories and clothing in the photo. It ties everything together without looking too match-y match-y. And many times NO shoes looks best, especially if you’ll be sitting or in poses where the bottoms of shoes can be seen – that never looks pretty. And don’t forget some funky socks to add another splash of color or personality if your overall look of the session is fun and bright.


Shabby chic color

Today’s I find this Inspiration from bespoke-bride.com , is one of our favorite photographs of color themes…Shabby chic!

 


Shabby chic colour schemes are normally pastel shades contrasting with simple rustic colours such as mocha brown.
