Tips for Family Photos
Planning the family photo session just takes a little bit of preparation. Here are a few tips to help!
- WARDROBE: The general rule now with family wardrobe is to coordinate colors (as opposed to matching). Pick a couple or three colors that coordinate well (think of the color wheel from Art 101). Start with two people in the family. Coordinate their outfits. For my own family, this is usually my daughter and me. Then we plan a polo or button-down shirt for my husband and son. Boys are usually easier to dress. Jeans and khaki pants are freebies (in terms of color scheme). Don’t forget to plan ahead for shoes – you don’t want to panic as you’re running out the door!
- LOCATION: Think about location. Do you want a more natural, park-like setting, or do you want a more urban look? Or maybe your own home or neighborhood would have more meaning?
- END GOALS: Think about what you’d like to do with the family portraits. Do you have wall space in the living room, bedroom or hallway for a family portrait? A staircase or game room for a canvas collage? What about grandparents and office prints?
At Tara Flannery Photography, we aim to be a full-service photography studio providing photographic products that will last a lifetime. Don’t let your family portraits end up as pixels on a computer. Let’s put them on the walls so that your family can enjoy them for years to come!
The Abercrombie Family
I absolutely adore these family photos with the Abercrombie family. Riley (the dog) was the star of the show and she did great! I love the coordinating blue/green color that they chose for outfits. And the natural, park-like setting was the perfect backdrop. I can’t wait to see the images in their neighborhood magazine!
