What to wear to your family photo session?

Hooray! You’re going to do family photos. Most families ask about what to wear. Don’t worry, it’s no too complicated. Here are three simple guidelines to have you looking great!

Most importantly, be comfortable!

Choose clothes that you are comfortable in, and that match your style. There is no reason to get dressed up if that’s not your thing. You will be happy, and your family will be happy in comfortable clothes.

You don’t need to match

Gone are the days of matching outfits! It’s fun to mix up colors and patterns. Just avoid neon colors and loud patterns or logos. Then you can all look good together without matching.

Choose neutrals with an accent

You can have fun with a pop of color! You may choose to dress mostly in neutrals, like blues, browns, and grays, and then add a fun color! What color do you love? Orange? Red? Purple? Go ahead and add some of your favorite color!
