DAY 4! Numero cuatro for the clothing boards and my Fall Family Fashion week! I have loved all of the boards, but this one is the most similar to what many of my clients feel comfortable and confident wearing to their shoots. It’s a great mix of bold fall colors that will add more POP and PUNCH to your images than DAY 1, DAY 2, OR DAY 3.
Clothing can really take your images to another level….. umm, this could be a good or a bad thing! Use this mix below to take yours to a positive place!
You’ll see some navy here…. which is one of the safest colors to wear that exists! It looks great on almost all skin tones, almost all hair colors & combos.
If you have blue eyes, it brings them out, and complements green or brown just as well. Also you see orange – the quintessential fall color that looks perfect in a natural, outdoor setting (which happens to be my favorite for family sessions). It adds that pop of color that brings interest and fun to your color scheme.
Small details like oversized buttons on the baby girl’s outfit and buttons on mom’s boots also add extra texture, as do the furry ugg boots for big sis! And dad and brother won’t complain too much about what you picked out for them b/c it’s COMFY and CASUAL…. not stiff and not something they are like “I never wear”. Now, I’m not saying they will be excited about getting dressed, but if you can get them to the session, then it’s my job to make sure they have a great time and see that family portraits aren’t ‘that bad’!
I hope you enjoyed today’s family fashion post & the last 3 days as much as I did! And more importantly, I hope it took a bit of the stress out of getting dressed for your upcoming fall shoot this season! If you are a client of mine, I am always open for quetions about clothing or am happy to do a little clothing review when you’re narrowing down your final selections. In fact, most of you already DO send me photos ahead of time of what you’re thinking about wearing & it looks pretty darn good without my input, so thumbs up!
