What to wear in a Family portrait session {Worcester MA Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photographer}

I think every time I book a session, I talk with my clients about suggestions on what to wear.  Whether it’s a Maternity, Newborn, or Family Session that is one of the consistent questions I get. I pulled these looks from the Internet so you could see examples which are fantastic!!! As you can see, it’s really best to pick one or two complementary colors to run through your outfits. It makes things much easier when your out buying that perfect picture outfit for each person in your family. I also love that it doesn’t make things super matchy matchy.

When everyone wears just a plain red collared shirt with khaki’s for example, everyone is blended together, and their personalities don’t shine. It will look more like a work company picnic picture that your own family portrait.  Whether you are preppy parents who have a teen who loves rock and roll, or a daughter who loves to sparkle, you all can still “fit” together in your photos by running with that one color accessory theme. Let him wear all black with a red belt, a red hat and red shoes. And her ~ a sparkly red headband, and poofy tutu. It will all work. Here are some amazing examples for everyone:

This is a great post. Hope you don’t mind if I pinned a bunch of these images on pinterest. We live in an area where everyone thinks they either don’t need to coordinate or should all wear the same thing. I hope to use a What to Wear board to send my clients to and I have pinned a bunch from this post. Thanks so much. Found you through Google images – search word -What to wear – family photography
