05 Sep What to Wear for Family Photos
While family photos are all about your beautiful faces, the overall look of your images can be greatly enhanced by a nicely coordinated wardrobe. I’m often asked what to wear for family photos, so I decided to collate some helpful ideas and inspiration.
I encourage my families to go for similar tones without being too matchy matchy! Start with one or two favourite (and complementary) colours, and then fill the gaps with neutrals.
Often a good place to start is with mum’s outfit. Find something that’s comfortable, makes you feel your sparkliest, and that you’re ok seeing yourself in for a good long while (your photos will be on the wall for years!). Then plan the rest of the family around that – colours / dressiness level / season.
I’ve created a Pinterest board with some gorgeous ideas to get you started. I’ve also pinned a few images of my beautiful clients who chose lovely outfits that worked so well together. You don’t have to go out and buy a whole new ensemble for every family member – just look for what you have that goes nicely together.
Some of these colour combos are just divine! Click below to have a browse.
I’ll keep adding to this board as I find more helpful ideas.
