One of the hardest parts of family photography is planning your outfits. I mean, obviously besides convincing your family to participate and smile, keeping everyone well and gathering up the courage to even get in front go the camera in the first place. Oh mama, I know it’s hard.
But one thing I want to assure is that once you have made that move, booked a session, is that I am here with you every step of the way. I want to help make sure your session is beautiful and you feel amazing the day we do photos.
That’s why every ANP client has access to a FREE styling session. It’s so easy and simple. You answer a few questions about your style and family, and the system does the rest. It will coordinate and help you put together outfits from your favorite stores including places like Target and H&M.
I promise it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, and many clients have used it to inspire them to dig through their closet and find clothing they already own to make something similar to what was suggested. It’s so simple!!
To help you get started, here are a few tips!!
Coordinate colors, but don’t match. The days of everyone in a white shirt and blue jeans are over. It’s way overdone and unoriginal. Instead, pick one or two colors and try to coordinate tops and accessories. They don’t have to match exactly, just have a general scheme.
Think about your Home. Do you have color theme going in your home? These pictures will be hanging on your wall- think about how that will look with the rest of your decor. You want classic and timeless- these are pictures you will have for years to come!
Don’t Be Afraid of Patterns. Some pattern is nice, just don’t let it become too much. Instead, spice it up with pops of color, fun accessories, varying textures, layered clothing and colors for a more unique feel!
Look for Clothing Collections. Most clothing shops for children have coordinating collections- check them out! It’s an easy way to coordinate without everyone matching exactly.
Plan Ahead! Once you book your session, try to begin planning outfits right away. No one wants to be rushing around the day of their photoshoot trying to find an outfit. Also, plan for haircuts and trying out new makeup before your session, so you are sure everyone looks their best.
Say NO To Characters. I know your kids really love Disney, but these outfits can be just as distracting as patterns.
Have Fun! Your photographer wants to capture the best version of your family. Come ready to laugh and play!
