In the lead up to a family session, my clients and I generally chat a lot about locations, things to do and most importantly, what to wear. When it comes to outfits, I actually don’t have any specific rules, as long as the style or colour palette works well as a whole. I do have galleries of pinterest ideas for those who need it and often have clients emailing me photos of clothes to get my thoughts which I’m more than happy to help with. It’s great to see the effort people put into their session, to make it even more relaxing and fun.
There is one idea that I think is a fantastic tip over all the others, when choosing outfits for your family session… and that is – for mum’s outfit to be the FIRST to be chosen. Usually if mum feels great, everyone feels great. It’s much easier to pull in the rest of the family’s outfits around something that makes mum feel wonderful than the other way around. It’s a tip I discovered a few years ago and has helped many a family have a fantastic family session with me.
Here’s a peek at little family adventure from not long ago with a quirky style of their own. Where the empty streets we explored, the sky art, the graffiti and the random balloons we found in a back allyway all came together just perfectly to suit this crew and their rad vibe. Enjoy!
