What to wear?

Often I am asked what to wear in family photos. It is hard to answer since there are so many different directions you can go and look great. Back when I was growing up it was popular to have all the family in jeans and matching white shirts or everyone dressed in one color. While that is still done and continues to look great,, it seems that many people are getting a little more fashion forward with their choices by mixing colors/tones giving each person an individual look but all together still well coordinated. I find that selecting 3-4 colors or tones and mixing it up for each person is a wonderful way for everyone to have an individual look but collectively to have a well-coordinated photo.

Ultimately, these are your photos to love and enjoy, so I think it is important that you choose clothing that makes you feel good and reflects your style. If you are the kind of family who likes to dress casually in life then that is perfectly acceptable for a family photo! If you want to make it more of a special occasion type attire that is also great! Whatever makes you happy and love the photos, I think that is the best way to go. If ever you need help, I have visual references for my clients who need a little direction or inspiration.

Here is a photo session I did this summer for a family who always does a great job of styling their shoot. I love the pale purple, blue and white palate they chose. Each person has a great individual look but together they all go well as a group too! I love that the little girl’s dress ties all the colors together and the pattern is not too distracting because it is surrounded by solids. Here are my favorites from their at-home family photo shoot!

simply radiant.

My dear friends are expecting their first baby and I was thrilled to do their maternity portraits. Their excitement was compelling and I know they are going to be incredible parents. We shot in their new home which was a picture perfect setting for the photographs. We did a variety of outfits and poses and even took some pictures with their sweet kitty Muffin. Here are some of the photos we took. It was so hard to narrow it down, they are some of my favorites to date!
