what to wear in portraits

I’ve been chatting on my facebook page, helping my readers plan for their family  portraits. I LOVE designing clothing for a photo shoot, especially the challenge of coordinating, instead of matchy-matching with a family.  The bigger the family, the more fun the challenge!  I was helping a friend shop last week for clothing for her family portraits, because the idea just overwhelmed her.  She decided on grays and blacks (great for winter photos), and I suggested a splash… Continue Reading
