Outdoor Family Sessions
For family groups it works well if you keep your clothing simple and co-ordinating. If everyone is dressed fairly coordinated with each other, it helps to keep the focus on the people in the portrait rather than the clothing, all different loud colors can be distracting. You may decide to go for a coordinated look with everyone wearing All Black or All White or keep it more casual with everyone wearing denim teamed with neutral tones and introduce a little colour. OR If big bright colours are you thing go with that. The most important thing is that you are happy and comfortable with what you wear – so dress in a way that you will LOVE looking at when you look back at your photos.
Accessories: Accessories can look great in photos, you may want to include, hats, scarfs, umbrella’s, a picnic blanket, but keep accessories minimal so its not over the top. Try to avoid loud patterns and large logos.
