Attire Tips: Family Photography

Start with a color palette

A color palette is a great guide in selecting your family members outfits because it creates cohesion. You want your family to "go" together and, although adorable, not necessarily matching exactly. It's more interesting to the eye when your family members wear a variety of colors and patterns rather than the same outfit across the board. When selecting your palette (a main color and 2-3 complimentary colors) keep in mind the season and location of your photo shoot. If you want to take the guess work out of it, browse Pinterest for outfit color palettes and tons of helpful guides will show up.
