This past holiday we visited my husband’s family in Mosselbay.  This was the second holiday we took family photos on the beach.  Thank you Heidi from Crazy Pixels for taking these beautiful photos.

Use these tips to help you pick out the perfect clothes for you and your family:

  1. PLAN AHEAD:  Once you’ve booked your session, start thinking about the clothes your family will wear. Think about your location and make sure your outfits will compliment the surroundings. Consider how well the colours and patterns will stand out against the backdrop of your location.
  2. COLOURS:  Coordinating the colours of your outfits will create unity while still respecting individual style and preferences. Pick a couple of colours and choose clothes that will fit in this colour scheme.
  3. PATTERNS:  Patterns can add visual interest to a family photo.  I enjoy having an outfit in the mix with all the colours in it. However, not everyone in the photo should wear patterns as it may distract the final image.

What did your family wear for your family photo shoot this year?  I would love to hear from you. As always thank you for reading!
