Fall inspired Clothing Tips | Baltimore Maryland Newborn and Family Photographer

Trying to figure out how to dress your family for your fall photo shoot?

With my recent Fall bookings and a new season of clothes in stores, I thought it would be a good time to share some “what to wear” inspirations.  One of the most frequently asked questions I get from clients is about their wardrobe and what they should wear to their photo shoot. Below are a few great looks that may provide some inspiration.  The key to having a great ensemble for your family is to have complementing colors with pops of texture and subtle patterns.  Gone are the days where everyone has to be matching! I recommend picking two or three colors out and sticking within that palette.

 

Location

When considering what to wear always take into account the setting of where your portraits will be taken.  Layering items will also allow for you to get several different looks without having to change your entire outfit. 

 

Pay attention to the details

Scarves, hats, shoes, jewelry… these all play a part in making your “look” come together. However, keep in mind that sometimes, less is more. Bigger accessories can become distracting.

Last winter I captured family photos with my immediate family (19 people, 6 of which where under the age of 8!) and I know first hand that it can be super stressful to get outfits for everyone that “go”.  In our situation, we picked blue and gray as our colors and with the textures, patterns and different shades, it really turned out perfectly...as you can see.

 

Comfort is Key!

Probably the most important thing I can tell you: wear what you know you look good in & what is comfortable! This is especially important because the way you feel about yourself in a particular outfit will come through in the images. This is true for kids as well as adults! Moms: how many times have you had to fight tooth and nail to get your little one dressed in something they didn’t want to wear, only to have them sulk about it for a while afterwards?
Make sure to wear clothes that are fitted, but not too snug. When clothing is a little too tight, it can show off bulges that you would rather keep hidden! 

Lastly, Enjoy Fall 2014...I hear we're in for a bad Winter.
