One of the questions I get asked most often about family photo sessions is "What should we wear?"
It's a good question, because your pictures will only be as good as you have prepared them to be. So many times I have heard people say you can't go wrong with classic White Shirt and Blue Jeans, right? ...
Wrong! Sorry but while there might be a very rare occasion to wear the White on a Jean look, it's wrong about 90% of the time. When you have an entire family decked out like that the pictures lose personality, and everyone in the photo blends together. There is no contrast between family members.
You want your pictures to reflect your families personality.
One of my favorite suggestions is to tell families to choose one garment that will be in the picture that has several colors in it. Such as a scarf, tie, or dress, then choose other colors from that item to dress the other family members.
f you're still having trouble choosing, try picking from a color pallet.
Reflect your families personality in your next photo shoot.
