I get asked all the time “what should we wear for our family portrait?” Well, this is a great time to discuss this since family portrait season is FAST APPROACHING!! What am I saying? Family portrait season IS HERE!!
A great family portrait begins with a great family portrait session. And the way to achieve that, is to start planning RIGHT NOW! So, before you go any further, give us a call and get on our calendar for either our Portrait in the Park Event or our Home for the Holiday Event. Details for both of these events are on our website.
Now, let’s talk about clothing. First, think about where you plan to hang your portrait. Will it be in your relaxed family or game room? Or will it be in a more formal room? That will help us set the style. Going formal or casual in your dress, will depend on where the portraits will hang and what style you prefer. After that, choose a color pallet that will go with, or compliment that room.
Now, let’s say you have no idea where your portraits will hang. No problem! Just choose colors that look good on your family and will stand the test of time.
To start, you might have a great dress or shirt that you LOVE and want to wear for the portrait. Great, let’s call this our inspiration piece. An inspiration piece will give you a place to start. Pull out a couple of colors from your inspiration piece and have everyone wear those colors.
Let’s say you LOVE blue. Everyone can wear jeans and a different shade of blue for their top. Or have the grown ups wear similar dark blue tops and the kids wear different shades of blue. Don’t be afraid of prints or to add a third color to your pallet. Be creative and add a little bit of your personality to spice things up.
I hope this is some good information. If you still need help, give me a call. That’s what I’m here for. I have included some samples below of some families who nailed it! You can also check out our website for some other examples.
Don’t delay, send us a note below and we will contact you about scheduling your 2018 family portrait. Talk to you soon, Lisa
