Planning a family photo shoot is full of…
Stress? Overwhelming anxiety? Countless hours of Pinterest surfing;)?
Well, it doesn’t have to be! Don’t overthink it. The goal is to look like your outfits all “go” together, but not look too matchy-matchy, right?
My biggest tip is this:
Mom’s, pick what you feel beautiful in… what fits you best. To me it’s all about the fit, not what is trendy right now. If something compliments your figure, it will photograph well. Notice the photo below; this dress on mom is very figure flattering and has a beautiful patterns with gorgeous colors to pull from. Use your outfit as the “inspiration piece” and then build around it.
Remember to mix patterns (polka dots, plaid, stripes) to shake things up! Just stay within your color scheme and you will be good! Also, remember texture photographs really well (embroidery, knits, etc), so have fun with that as well.
If you look closely at this photo above you will see that all the outfits compliment mom’s dress, but it doesn’t feel like she was trying too hard matching everyone. Mixing patterns, solids, and texture will really help.
If you are still feeling lost and need some inspiration, my instagram is a great place to visit my most recent sessions. My clients really have the best style, so go and check it out!
Hope this helps with your upcoming fall sessions!
