Family Session – What to wear

Summer is coming soon and it’s a great time to think about family portrait session on your favourite location.

I often get asked questions about the type of clothing during a session. I know it can be quite stressful and we all already struggle to get the family out of the door all clean and prepare to go! Especially with kids you have so many unexpected accident . . . so I thought to share some “what to wear” ideas to try making this part a little bit easier.

Make sure you wear clothes that flatters you, nothing too big that will make you larger nor too small that will make you look award. If you feel good in an outfit, you probably look wonderful so make sure you are comfortable. That’s just as a general rule!

Choose one colour with different shades or pick a colour palette of 2-3 colours you like or you feel right for the session you want to have. At the moment Green seems to be quite fashionable  and  a lot of designer are using it as a trend for spring/summer 2013.

Have a look at some ideas here

Please try to avoid getting sunburn short before the session, those tan lines are definitely not attractive in portraits. They are hard to remove in Photoshop and required a lot of work.

It’s good to wear some jewelery but keep it simple, the attention is on you and not on the accessories.

Have fun!
