How to Select Outfit for Family Pictures

When scheduling family pictures, many of my clients ask what I recommend for clothing.  Some families find it easier to just tell everyone in the photograph to wear white shirts and jeans; however, you can get each persons personality and have a better picture by having a little variety.  Now… I said a little variety!  Here are my tips for picking out clothing for your family portrait.  This is what I do…

1. Select one piece of clothing that has a pattern (usually this is one of the children).  From that patterned piece pick some colors you like or have in your closet.  These colors will be what everyone else wears.  If there is more than one child you can put the other child in a pattern too, but make sure it matches in color.

2. Pull pieces from your closet for each family member, lay them on the floor and photograph them from above.  Come back to the photos is a couple of days to see which set of outfits stands out to you as your favorite.

As you can see by the images below, I had three different sets of outfits picked out.  I sent these to my other family members and they chose the grey and yellow color scheme and dressed accordingly.  The photos on the right is the finished image…not too bad!  Variety but not chaotic.

If you are ever in doubt send me your images and I can help you make a decision or give you some suggestions on what to wear for your family photo.

What a small world that we all come from Connersville and somehow all connect up here in Fort Wayne.  What a busy little boy you have!  Ashton was so much fun and such a cute, sweet thing.  Thanks so much for the opportunity to photograph your family.  Have a great Halloween and tell Ashton he will have to come out and ride a real tractor soon:)
