Styling your Family portraits
Your session is booked...now what?! How on earth do you put together outfits worthy of hanging on your wall? Take a deep breath, it's easier than you think!
Start with yourself. If you're anything like me, you're picky, know what looks good on you best, and will have the hardest time dressing yourself. So start with yourself. Choose the biggest items first, like a top or a dress, and move on from there. Once you have your base outfit chosen, move on to the next Parent. Choose something that coordinates with your outfit, but nothing super matchey. From there, head to your kiddos. With so many options out there for children, choosing outfits to round out the family will be a breeze. Once everyone's base outfits are chosen, move on to layers, accessories, and footwear.
A note on footwear: typically during a family session, we're moving, walking, crouching and sitting. You'll be walking on uneven ground, through tall grasses, and over rocks so I highly suggest choosing stable footwear. No spiky heels or platform boots are needed for these family sessions!
If you need any help at all choosing your outfits, I'm always happy to give my opinion. Just reach out via email or social media!
