Kidz and Family Shoots... Yes to...
Your Clothing choice for your Children and yourselves is SUPER important!
Have a look at some other photos that you like on the internet and try to choose some clothing styles that are flowing, like long skirts, flowy material tops like chiffon or other soft materials.
For men, choose something flattering and something that is you. Classic jeans/pants and shirts are great.
Kids. Same as above. Think carefully about your choices and how they will look with you walking or sitting all together.
Try to choose simple plain colours. Patterns, stripes and Florals can be very distracting from the subjects and your faces. Soft muted florals for women can be ok but plain colours preferred.
Very bright clothing can also be distracting unless you want to stand out! Eg. Red dress with a Glamour Shoot is perfect! Family and children’s shoots soft colours are best.
Wear colours that go nicely together for groups of two or more. Eg. White, Blue, and Grey. If you have a group, try and coordinate everyone with similar and complimentary tones.
Try to choose Classic styles that wont date so your images are still fashionable in year to come.
Bring hats, hair pieces, scarves or accessories that show your personality and style and some favourite toys and accessories for the little ones.
Suspenders are great for boys and pretty flowing dresses for girls.
These are only suggestions, you and your family can certainly choose how you wish to be dressed.
Wrinkled clothing can potentially spoil your end result. Bring your clothing on hangers and hang inside your car. Even better, wrinkle free fabric is amazing. 🙂
Dress for Full Length, even if you are not planning on full length shoots. There may be something that comes up where you need shoes.
Make sure your shoes go with your outfit.
Definitely bring your sense of humour and expectation of having some fun
