What to Wear for Family Portraits – 3 General Dos | Ann Arbor Family Photographer | Captured by Kelsey Photography

Coordinating Colors

It might sound daunting, but it’s easier than you think! Neutral colors are an easy go to; navy, blue, tan, or white seamlessly create a classic look. Is your family a little more bold? Picking colors like dark red, especially if your shoot is in the fall, creates a dramatic contrast to the changing foliage.

Be Prepared

Whether your shoot has props, multiple outfits, or a toddler – having everything you need eliminates the possible stress of you realizing on location that you forgot the favorite blanket or the dog treats were never packed.

Incorporate Family Memorabilia

Is there a necklace that has been passed down from generation to generation? A hat that grandpa has worn since his service in the war? Whatever it is, if it has meaning, we can always find a creative way to incorporate it into your family photos, without it taking away from the true focus of the picture – your beautiful family!
