Have your clothing chosen way in advance and make sure that your outfit choices are comfortable and attractive. What do your dream family photography look like? Chose neutral colors with soft, flowing fabrics…. think creams, very soft pastels, oatmeals, light browns, tans, grays, and slate blues.
Or If you want to show bright colors, Choose coordinating colors (but not too match) with bold accent colors, such as hues of gray with yellow or bright red accents. Adding Some cute accessories will add some flair to your family photos.
I recommend checking out pinterest for What to wear inspiration.
Here are a list of some of my favorite stores.
Zara, Gap, H & M, Anthropology and etc..
You’re welcome to change outfits as many times as you would like within our time frame.
Things to Avoid
Avoid colorful drinks or lollipops within 24 hours of the shoot, and don’t let your kids eat or drink anything that will stain their face, teeth or mouths. I can photoshop out some spots but when it’s on the entire face, it could look unnatural.
What to Bring
Please bring props, including your kids’ favorite toys. Some ideas include: balloons, giant lollipops, books, costumes, sunglasses, blanket to sit on, hats, etc..
If your child is still of napping age, make sure they nap before the shoot.
If your anyone is not feeling well that day please reschedule. I want best results. 🙂
