What to Wear To Your Photo Session | Spring/Summer
Outdoor family photo session season is upon us again. And it's always a good idea to give some thought to what you'll wear to yours.
While it's nice to look like you belong together, matching is unnecessary. You don't match every member of your family's outfits on a daily basis, so don't do it for your photos. It's easy to find a way for everyone to visually go together, while still all looking like individuals.
See? In this example no one is wearing the same thing. They're not even wearing the same color tops. I found this girl's dress with a pretty flower pattern. Then I pulled colors from it to help decide what the other family members would wear. As an added bonus, I picked out a textured shirt for the boy. If you do have two members of your group wearing similar color tops or dresses, having one with texture is a great way to visually separate them a bit.
And you don't have to go out and buy new clothes to do this. (Although you're allowed to if you want.) If you're looking for ideas of ways to combine your clothing into an outfit, check out retailer's websites. They often have examples featuring their newest items.
The bottom line is wear something you feel good wearing. Because if you're uncomfortable, it's going to show all over your face.
