Wondering what to wear? | Session styling

I’ve noticed over the past few years that almost everyone who books a family session asks me for help on what they should be wearing.  With May right around the corner, and lots of sessions on the calendar, I thought this might be a great time to give you my thoughts on this!!  Here’s a color chart of a few color combos to get the ball rolling 🙂


With families I recommend staying away from everyone wearing the same color.  It’s too matchy-matchy.  You’ve seen the photos where everyone is wearing all white or all black with the kahkis…they aren’t fun to look at because there’s no variety!  I think color livens up a session. Pick 2 or 3 colors and 1 color that ties everyone together.  Here are some examples:

Dress it up a bit, but keep it relaxed as well!  You want to look nice, but natrual so that when you see your photos hanging on your wall you recognize yourselves – so wear something comfortable.

Not into dresses or skirts ladies? That’s ok…neither am I!  Try fun pants, or dress up a casual outfit with scarves, jewelry etc…

Don’t over think it…it can drive you crazy.  You can find things at Target, Kohls, TJ Maxx, no need to spend a fortune.

See you this summer, can’t wait to see what you pick out  🙂
