What should we wear?
Everyone seems to ask: "What should we wear?"
Here are some simple suggestions:
Solid, same colors will work but are not best. It is very dated and causes no one to stand out and doesn't make for an interesting image.
If you wish to purchase new clothes, GO FOR IT! Some new shirts for the kids is not a bad idea either. These photos are an investment and will be worth it in the long run.
Always find an outifit that is most flattering for each of you. If you don't like your arms, don't wear a short sleeve shirt. You want to look your best!
Patterns look great on Kids! Colorful shirts that are complementary colors with other members of the family will look great and make for wonderful images.
Avoid Logos! You are not advertising anything other than yourself. You have no idea how many times I've had to ask clients to turn thier shirts backwards or inside out to avoid something so hidious it would distract from their image.
Layers are great because you can mix and match colors and styles. Looks great on everyone. A simple coat with matching shoes can change the feel of a photo and look wonderful!
Let me know if you have any questions!
