When I book sessions, my clients ask me, "What should I wear?". When I first started out in photography, I would simply tell the client, "Whatever you want to be photographed in". I learned by experience, that is the WRONG answer. I have learned that busy patterns and bright colors, take away from the images I capture. When I photograph a family, I want the focus to be on the faces and them as a unit. Bright and bold colors and patterns become very distracting. I photograph many families outdoors. The sun, bright or not, reflects colors. Bright colors like neon green, pink, reds and yellows, reflect brightly onto the face and it takes a very long time to remove those colors successfully from the skin. Softer colors and neutrals are perfect for family sessions. The focus then falls onto the people, their faces and not what they are wearing. The photographs that I have attached to this post are PERFECT examples of WHAT TO WEAR. Their outfits are simple, and coordinated. It shows that they are one unit. They belong together as a unit. They are, family.
