Good morning! I hope your weekend was a good one. I opened the back door Saturday morning, and my kids flew out like caged birds. A weekend of spring weather was just what we needed! And speaking of spring...
My favorite wardrobe selections for pictures has definitely evolved over the past 5 years. This is a highly subjective topic, so I'm calling it a guide, not a must. :) I have slowly come to favor more neutral, airy, light colors and patterns for spring pictures.
Creams, pastels, subtle checks and ginghams, scalloped edges, lace in small doses, and detailed necklines/collars are my favorite springy looks.
Be careful with matchy-matchy. We want everyone to coordinate, but not necessarily match.
No all white/khaki. We do want some color.
No short dresses or skirts, and no low-cut tops. We want you to feel totally comfortable playing with your children, sitting on the ground, etc.
When someone looks at your family pictures, we want them to see exactly that: your sweet family. We don't want distracting patterns or uncomfortable layers or crazy color schemes to take away from the emotion of the picture. Does that make sense? :)
For my clients, I will send you a more detailed guide to help you navigate through your closet before our session. I hope this post is a good starting point. As always, feel free to email me any questions. I like talking wardrobe. It can make or break a picture.
