“What should we wear?”

Here’s some ideas - Dress according to the setting
The first step when selecting outfits for a family photoshoot is thinking about whether it will be indoors or outdoors. Especially in the latter, it’s important to choose an outfit that will let you move freely.

In an outdoor location, consider if there is sand, rocks or grass. Dress for that setting. You will want to be comfortable sitting on the grass, so maybe light-coloured pants might not be a good option in that case. And you might want to bring a lead for the family dog.

Coordinate colours, don’t match them
There was a time when families were expected to match completely when they had a photoshoot ordered. Although I have taken those portraits before, it isn’t so fashionable anymore.

When wondering what to wear for a family portrait, try choosing coordinating colours but not matching everything exactly. Maybe you can select a colour and everyone chooses their own shade, or you select a palette and mix and match as needed

It’s always stylish
Use the season to select your colour schemes. In winter, blues, whites, grey and red are a good option. In summer, light shades, blues, pinks and tans are a favourite.

Think about your home décor
It’s very likely you’ll want to showcase the resulting family portrait at home. Because of this, think about the general colour scheme of your place and try to coordinate the colours in your family portrait.

Again, I don’t recommend matching. Just think about the overall feel: If your home is very neutral, then it might be a good option to keep your patterns classic and use complementary tones.

Keep comfort in mind
In agreement with thinking about the setting you’ll be taking your portraits in, try to choose comfortable outfits. You will probably be changing positions often, maybe sitting and standing as well, so select your outfit accordingly.

Your portraits will look more natural if everyone is feeling great in their clothes! This is especially true for your little ones: we will have a much better chance of taking great pictures if your kids are comfortable enough to run, play and roll around a bit.

Stay classic
Yes, family portraits are meant to reflect a distinct time in your family’s life. But they will probably stay around for years to come. Many clients of mine have family portraits dating back more than 30 years!

This means that things that are “in” right now might not be then. To lengthen your portrait’s life and avoid hiding it in a few years, stick to classic outfits that will stand the test of time. Your photos will be forever in style!

Add a touch of personality with props
Even though it’s better if all outfits generally coordinate and stay classic, you want to showcase your personality. Whether that means bringing in the family dog, adding a bright scarf or doing some candid shots of the kids, it’s important to capture what makes your family unique! On the other hand, props and accessories let you create different looks with the same photoshoot. These add texture and visual interest to the portrait.
