It’s a little overwhelming to dress the entire family for pictures and make it all look good! Here are some tips to think about when putting your family’s outfits together for family pictures…
1. Take Some Time To Plan
Think about what look and feel you want the photos to have. Go online to get inspiration. Do you want a vintage or more modern and simplistic look? Do you want to be more casual or dressy? Find stores that usually have shirts or jeans that fit your budget and has reasonable prices.
2. Color Scheme
For family pictures, it helps to have complementary colors, so picking a color scheme you like works best. Maybe (for example – tan, gray and blue or blue white and yellow) and then adding some pops of colors looks really good in photos. If you’re planning on hanging the pictures in your home, you might find inspiration there. What colors make you feel good?
3. Think Layers
I think it adds dimension to have some texture and layering in your outfits. For the boys, that’s usually a couple of shirts – maybe a plain tee under a cool checked shirt, knit sweater for vest. For the girls that could mean a skirt, shirt, sweater, tights and maybe a hair accessory.
Scarves, necklaces, hats, hair bows, and socks can also bring a lot to your images. It’s that finishing touch that brings everything together. The girls can wear a colored headband, belt or bow that matches each other if we want to bring the color scheme all together.
5. Choosing a Place (scenery)
Where are you taking pictures? Is it more industrial or urban…or out in park ? What you choose to wear should somewhat go with your setting.
Most of all try to have fun and enjoy this experience and time together with your family, the happiness will show on your pictures as well....
