What to Wear: The Age-old Question About Portraits {Quincy, Illinois Family Photographer}

November 15, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I often get asked what to wear for photographs. While this seems like an easy question, it's really not. Gone are the days of matching pink polos with everyone wearing matching tan slacks and tops. "Be interesting ...be you!" is how I often respond when asked this question. While the family can wear whatever they wish for photographs, I tell them to look like themselves at their best. Wear colors that represent them. Colors are great and sometimes not everyone's colors are the same ... which is even better! No one family wears all matching cardigans in real life, why look like it in a photograph? Here are some recent session that branched out and went bold for the color combination. I think they all turned out fantastic and were rewarded greatly for the brave move by stunning color in their photos. Love the outfits everyone! So next time you wonder, "What should we wear for our family photographs?" Answer it with one word: clothes. LoL No, not really. I'll answer it with this ... "great colors and stylish clothes that reveal your family's style :)

If you have any questions about particular outfits or combinations, browse my pinterest for inspiration and color ideas. Also, when in doubt about the weather, layer, layer, layer! 

For questions about this blog, don't hesitate to give me a quick call or shoot me an email for further questions about your particular upcoming session.
