What you wear to your session is SO very important! If you have decided to invest time and resources to hire a custom photographer for your portraits, why not get inspired and dress your family in a way that truly makes you all shine! I don't mean for everyone to run out and dress the way I tell you to dress.... not at all!! What I do suggest is that you have fun with it and think outside the box. There's no need to match every member of your family, just remember to keep everyone in the same style. You wouldn't want to wear a cocktail dress and have your husband wear shorts.... you get the picture! Just pick some colors and browse around the mall to see what you can find. Think about layering shirts, vests, etc. and selecting textured pieces such as sweaters and corduroy... add accessories such as scarves, headpieces, hats and whatever else strikes your fancy! Believe it or not, mixing patterns is okay and in fact, works great for photos! Below are some looks pulled by the fabulous people over at Inspire Me Baby to get you started. Happy Wednesday!
