What to Wear

INDIVIDUAL: Wear something bold & colorful with a lot of texture! This is an opportunity for your child to shine & show their personality! For children, I usually recommend bare feet for indoors and boots or shoes that compliment their outfit for outside. Best textures include, knitting, embroidery, dark faded denim, buttons & ruffles. This type of clothing tends to photography best, and adds more visual interest.  Try and stay away from cartoon characters & other printed photos.  If you need more inspiration, check out Gymboree, the Gap, Janie & Jack for style ideas!

SIBLINGS: It can be difficult to coordinate colors and not look too matchy matchy. I recommend picking a few colors, but try no to put them in the same exact clothing. The more layers, textures and colors the better. I recommend bring and deep colors and stay to away from pastels. I do recommend interesting your child’s clothing for the session because it does make a difference on the finally product. Search out local or online boutiques.

FAMILIES: Choose a style you like and a few colors you like as well. I recommend having the parents dress fashionable, yet simple and focus more of the funky unique style on the kids. If you have 5 pople all dressing with a lot of layers and accessories it can be a little much. Dark jeans that have a grit to them is always a great choice for the parents or especially the husband. If you are going to wear print stay away from small prints, there is not a ton of visual interest (think bold!) Continue to think about texture and color. You make thing that certain colors don’t go together but again think outside the box and have fun!
