7 Tips on What to Wear for a Family photo shoot
1. First and foremost what you’re comfortable in!
These pictures are to reflect you and your family’s personalities so wear clothes that reflect you! Simple is usually best.
2. Clothes that fit!
Sounds obvious but an important one..clothes that you can move around in easily while legging it around the park, chucking your kids in the air or climbing trees without gaping, ripping or flashing a bit more flesh than planned!
3. No logos or writing on clothing
These can end up being very distracting in photos so best to leave in the cupboard on photo shoot day!
4. Dress for the environment and the weather
Think where we are headed..do you need wellies? Comfy shoes? Warm gloves? All the questions you ask every time you are headed out as a family!
If you or one your clan loves climbing trees and doing cartwheels in skirts, then tights and leggings are a must to avoid flashing knickers!
5. Avoid really bold patterns
Again these can be quite distracting. Stripes are ok but tiny checks can do crazy things to your eyes in images so best avoided!
6. No big bags or bulging pockets please!
Anything you carry with you or in your pockets will be in your photos. Pockets full of big phones and keys or huge bulky backpacks never look good. I’m happy to carry any little bits and bobs while we are out and about so they don’t spoil your pictures.
7. Not too matchy matchy!
Instead of trying to put everyone in matching colours it can be helpful to think of matching tones. Try laying out outfits on your bed before the shoot to see how they all work together.
