Here are some ideas that will help you choose the right outfit for your family portraits:

  • wear solid colored clothing as much as possible
  • choose muted tones that are a bit subdued as to not be distracting from faces
  • choose similar tones for your top and bottom (both dark or both light)
  • choose a top with sleeves at least to the elbow
  • choose long pants for men/ladies or a skirt below the knee for ladies
  • choose dark socks and footwear (unless it’s a barefoot photo on the beach)
  • keep jewellery simple and minimalistic
  • do your hair the way you’d normally do it while wearing these clothes
  • if getting a haircut or new hairdo, make your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your portrait session
  • and communicate with children a week in advanced so that they are not surprised the day of the portraits
