1. Dress Up
Family pictures are a special occasion, so dressing up does count. Think beyond your everyday outfit and aim for something a little more polished. It doesn’t have to be a dress, but maybe some accessories or make-up to add extra glamour. This may seem like a small detail, but it can make a huge difference in the overall aesthetic of your photos, and can make everyone involved feel a little more special and excited.
2. Choose Complementing Colors
Coordination is key, but it doesn’t mean everyone has to wear the same thing. Start with an outfit that you love and then build around it. Pick out one main color and then add accent colors that are complementary. Using different tones and shades of these colors creates a cohesive look that is visually pleasing. Be careful not to use too many patterns, however, as this can distract from the main focus.
3. Avoid Distracting Clothing
Logos, writing, and bright colors are all loud and can be distracting in photos. You want to be the center of attention, not your clothing. It’s best to avoid patterns that are too intense or items with slogans that might detract from the beauty of the photo. Solid colors are a great choice, but if you do want to integrate patterns, make sure they are subtle and complementary.
Accessorizing is always a great idea! Adding hats, jewelry, scarves, jackets, or even different shoes, can all add a personal touch to your photos. It can also add texture and variety to enhance the visuals of the photo. If you’re unsure what kind of accessories to add, ask your photographer for suggestions – they’ll be happy to help you choose items that work well for a family portrait.
5. Wear Clothing You Are Comfortable In
It’s important to feel comfortable and confident in your outfit, otherwise, it’ll show in the photos. Additional stress or discomfort can translate in the photos, so it’s best to stick with something you feel great wearing. It’s also important to take note of any insecurities or body hangups you may have and choose something that makes you feel good. This will ensure you feel confident and comfortable, and your photos will shine accordingly. Spend some time talking to your photographer beforehand to come up with the perfect look and outfit that fits both your style and comfort level.
Preparing for family pictures can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. By keeping these five tips in mind, you can create a fun and relaxed atmosphere that will guarantee stunning photos for years to come.
