I’m so excited to announce a series I’ve put together for those of you taking Family photos in the near (or later) future! For the next few days, I’ll be having a massive influx of posts, all about What to Wear in Family Pictures by Color. I originally planned to make it a week long series, but with other commitments, I thought I’d just cram a bunch into 3 days!
It can be a challenge to put together clothes for a family in pictures, especially if you’ve got a bigger family–the more people, the more shuffling of layers you have to do. I’ve shared some tips in the past about What to Wear and How to plan for family pictures, in talking about how to put pieces together, where to go for inspiration, locations, etc. This post and series is all about certain colors, and once you get an idea in your head of what color you want to START with, you will then come to these posts to see what other colors would go with it.
Each year when we take pictures, I generally have one “pop of color” in mind. I’ll start with something like yellow, then try to decide what to pair it with. It could be blue, or gray, or orange. Any of those will look great, but in this series, you will have a great visual of certain colors, and how they pair with other colors to help you decide how you want to style your own family picture clothes.
Some of the images were a challenge to decide which color was more dominant, (and you may not agree) but that’s ok. I just decided based on what stood out to me the most, or what color was used the most in my opinion.
Also follow my new What to Wear in Family Pictures Pin Board that I’ll continue to add to!
