How do I pick a wardrobe for my family photoshoot?

Frankly, this pretty easy, but a lot of families struggle with this. My advice is to think about these things:

  1. What season is it?
  2. Think about your location and what your background will be.
  3. Do I want a light and airy look? Or a more dark and moody look?
  4. Do I want us all to match?
  5. Do I want the clothing to portray my family's unique personalities?
  6. What do I feel comfortable in?
  7. Am I going to hang my picture on a wall in my home? If so, do I want my outfits to match my decor?
  8. What accessories do I want to go with my outfits? (Hint: Don't OVER accessorize.)
  9. You might not want to have busy prints and patterns as they can be distracting.

Once you know the answer to these questions, you may be in a better place to choose your outfits. If in doubt, you can always ask your photographer for a bit of advice.
