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)
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
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.
