I can’t believe it, but Fall is just around the corner. This means it’s time for back to school, football, hot cider, pumpkins, lots of leaves, and cooler weather. Fall is one of my favorite times of year! It is the perfect time of year to get updated portraits of your children and family for your holiday cards. I offer family mini sessions just for this reason. This year they will be in September and October and will be held at your choice of Frisco Commons, Frisco Square, or Hidden Cove Park on Lake Lewisville.
One of the most frequently asked questions I get from clients is about their wardrobe and what they should wear to their photoshoot. I am constantly on Pinterest looking for wardrobe ideas for families, children, high school seniors, and couples. If you would like to check out my finds make sure to follow my What to Wear – Photo Outfits board on Pinterest.
Below is an example of a fall family look for an outdoor photoshoot. All of these clothes can be found at Old Navy, Gap, or Piperlime.
I find that the best advice I can give my clients is to wear coordinating outfits, but not necessarily matching outfits. You don’t all need to be in khakis and a white shirts or jeans and black tops, you should pick two to three colors and mix and match. For example, if you were to pick navy blue, yellow and white you could have mom in a white dress with yellow accessories, dad in a navy blue polo with khakis, and your kids in a mix of the three colors.
Another thing to think about when picking out clothes for a photoshoot is the fact that you will be having these photos for a long time. You don’t want to look back in ten years and be mortified at the outfits you picked out, so when in doubt go for classic looks that will stand the test of time. I’m not saying you have to necessarily play it safe in all of your outfits, but you may want to just think about this.
