WHAT TO WEAR

What to wear

 

As a general rule, solid and soft colours look best on camera. Try and avoid wearing bright clothing which can dominate the screen. A safer colour to wear would be colours like light beige, nude and light colours. Also, very pale colours work better. I love linen maxi dresses and linen t-shirts. Texture is also a great way to add depth. 

 

Instead of trying to match outfits, I suggest you think about one or two complementary colours ( like the colours on the base colour picture below) and choose a colour scheme instead. It should be based on the season and also the setting of your photos. Have fun with your outfits as this will be the number 1 thing you notice in all your images.

  • Neutral, coordinating colours. Do not match! 

  • Patterns like check, stripes and florals. You can even mix-and-match them, and don't be afraid to layer them with solid colours, denims and linens.

  • Fitted clothes. Tailored outfits will always look better than loose-fitting clothing. 

 

Start with Mum’s outfit and pull colours from her outfit to dress and layer everyone else. Layering can make a huge difference in tying in all the colours. 

 

I always recommend professional Hair and Makeup.

As these family photos are a great investment to your family,  and will be proudly hung in your homes, put the time and effort into styling your family for this special occasion.

Don’t match. Coordinate

 

DON'T WEAR

  • Items that are all the same colour/too matchy matchy. 

  •  Loud, clashing colours & patterns. 

  • Uncomfortable clothes because they will look uncomfortable! 

  • Clothes that are too baggy, ill-fitting or very low cut. 

  •  Sweatpants/sweatsuits or thongs (I live in thongs but leave those Havaianas at home just for this one!)

  •  large pictures and logos
