What to wear tips for family portraits | Advice for how to dress for your professional photos

S
o you've been thinking about getting your family photography done professionally and you've gone ahead and booked your session. I get a lot of families who hire me to capture their family portrait and ask me what they should wear to the session.  
 
You don't want your clothes to upstage your face, so this is not a time to dig out your favorite Hawaiian shirt. Deep down, you probably know that was not a great look anyway. I've been sending a short description and a Pinterest board with some examples pinned (which I will link to in this article), but I wanted to put together something a little more in depth for those who want more guidance. I snuggled down with my three cats and Hawaiian onesie (because I'm not the one getting my picture taken) and wrote out all of the little pieces of advice that I could ponder regarding what families should be thinking about when it comes to what to wear for their family pictures. (And I've left in a few "helpful" tips my husband added to keep it fun!)  
 
This is not law, so relax! By no means is this the definitive guide, but it's a simple start for those who are at a loss for where to begin. In the end, your family portraits should be a snapshot of your family personality at this stage of your lives, and you should wear what will reflect that and what makes you feel good. If one person is wearing their retro rock n' roll T-shirt, you all better have one. If these examples and words don't speak to your family don't feel like you MUST follow the advice. You know what they say, rules are meant to be broken. You do you!  
 
 
 
COLORS:  
 
What you've heard is true, no matchy-matchy! The goal for your professional photos should be to coordinate with each other while not looking like you just stepped out of a national best dressed twinsies contest. This can seem like a difficult thing to achieve but there are a couple of ways you can do this.  
 
1.) Start with your best dressed. Try having one of the ladies in your group pick an outfit first (I'm looking at all the moms out there) and then pull colors from his or her outfit to guide what the rest of the group will wear. Or, maybe there's someone in the group who has a really cool patterned article of clothing they "just have to wear." You can pull colors from that pattern to figure out what everyone else will wear.  
 
2.) Shades of gray is sexy, and for some reason also a box office hit...or shades of green, blue, or any other color can feel just as good. You can decide ahead of time that you want to pick 2-4 different colors for the group to use. I often have clients ask which colors to wear, and I believe there's no wrong answer to this. (But obviously, Crips should all wear blue). Note: If by chance you are not a Crip, blue also represents trust and loyalty in case you need other reasons to wear blue.  
 
Don't allow color hogging. My advice is to avoid having everyone in the group wearing darker colors with one wearing lighter colors and vice versa because that person who is not wearing a similar color as the rest of the group will stand out in the pictures. It's like one person using jazz hands and the rest using spirit fingers...all you can see are the jazz hands. (But if one person is clearly superior to everyone else in your family, then this is of course ok).  
 
Here's a visual representation of what I'm talking about. In this image it looks like the plan was to try and have everyone wear some sort of light blue, dark blue, cream, khaki, and white type of colors but there are a couple of people who strayed from that plan and in the group portrait they stand out a little bit more than the other family members do. It's still a great photo of the whole family together so mission is accomplished. Don't go uninviting Aunt Suzie from Thanksgiving dinner over this minor infraction. It can be hard coordinating clothing, especially when you are all on family vacation together. But they do unintentionally stand apart from everyone else a little bit.

PATTERNS:  
You will probably see lots of advice about not wearing patterns but I actually really love them. The trick is to pick patterns that won't take too much away from your face or will compete too much between people in the same portrait. But please don't be shy about incorporating patterns if that's your thing! (Checkerboards and laser patterns are smoking hot right now.)  
 
In this example you can see that there are lots of different patterns being worn, but they are all subtle and do not compete with the faces and the other patterns being worn.

Here you'll see two totally different patterns, but the colors go well together and dad's simple green sweater keeps it from becoming too busy in their portraits.

And here is one more example of lots of different patterns being worn, but are subtle enough and using the overall color scheme well so that they don't feel mismatched in the portrait:

OVERALL FEEL:  
 
It's important to think about the overall feel of your portraits. Do you want to keep it casual? Or are you thinking of something more formal? What time of year are we photographing? Be sure to keep these things in mind when coordinating your outfits so that the feel of your clothing matches with each other and with the time of year or weather in addition to the colors and patterns.  
 
Here's a family who opted for more formal attire for their family portraits:

And another family who figured out a clothing option that makes sense for cold weather photos while still matching each other well (They also did well with incorporating textures and accessories which I will touch on next).  
 
It's particularly important to wear something that will keep you comfortable during extreme weather sessions. I have had families who weren't wearing warm enough clothing during snowy winter sessions and others who were wildly sweating during a warm summer session to try and look more fall-like for their Christmas cards. A little bit of light suffering for a few photos goes with the territory, but not at the expense of having to call off the session early because you're clothing is making you miserable!

ACCESSORIZE & TEXTURIZE:  
 
Don't forget to accessorize! Adding a scarf, hat, jewelry, belts (grandma's rhinestone leopard brooch which is roughly the size of your hand) etc...are all things that can add a little fun flair to your outfit and can really complete your look. Accessories can help showcase your personality and are even sometimes helpful when posing (think of holding your husband's jacket lapel, or a touch of your hat etc...) Don't go overboard with accessorizing, but a small amount of simple accessories definitely go a long way! Be sure to incorporate some texture with your clothing when you can as well. It's certainly not the most important thing when thinking about what to wear to your session, but adding clothing with texture to your look will look awesome in B&W photos and it will add a subtle dimension and depth to your pictures, particularly if you plan to go with softer more neutral colors. It helps keep you far away from boring!

Here's a great example of incorporating textures into your clothing. That subtle bit of varying patterns/materials etc...adds great depth to a portrait.

SHOES:  
 
Don't forget about them when you are planning your outfit! Some of your portraits will probably be full length and depending on the location they may be visible in your photos. The style of shoe matters only in that it fits with the rest of your outfit you have put together. Generally brightly colored athletic shoes are not going to go with your look unless you are purposefully going for a gym rat theme for your portraits. If we're going to a location where there is some walking or hiking involved you can either try to incorporate a shoe that looks good while being easy on your feet or you can wear comfy shoes to get to the location and then change into the shoe that completes your outfit. Try to avoid white socks as well. They may not show when you are standing up for a portrait, but there are some poses where you may be sitting, the flash of white peeks out making you "that guy."  
 
Just imagine if this adorable little girl had been wearing athletic shoes or something that didn't go with the rest of her cute outfit? Her feet would be pretty distracting in the picture if that was the case.

And lastly, the following are just a few extra pieces of advice when planning for your portraits.  
 
CREASES: Watch out for large wrinkles and be sure to iron before the session if needed. Trust me, it's much cheaper than paying extra to photoshop them out later!  
 
HAIR & MAKEUP: Wear what you like to wear! But try to avoid making big changes right before your session. Give your hair a little bit of time to grow to your normal look after a haircut, and maybe give that edgy new style your younger cousin promised is "Gucci AF" a few months before you schedule your session etc...  
If you normally like a natural look when it comes to makeup, that's great! I do usually recommend going just a little bit darker or more dramatic than you usually do since it's harder to see makeup on camera than in real life but don't feel like you have to go overboard with it.  
 
WEAR CLOTHING THAT FITS WELL: If your clothing is too tight it will be hard to move around during your session. If it's too baggy you may end up looking larger than you want for your pictures. Ill fitting clothing tends to be accentuated on camera and generally will not be as flattering.  
 
There you have it, an in depth advice article for what to wear for your professional photos. I won't tell you what colors or what exactly to wear because I want my clients to be themselves at their family session. But hopefully these tips will help you look like your best self! I'm always happy to take a look at a photo of your outfits laid out if you like, but please don't feel like you have to overly worry about what you are wearing for your photos. The most important part of all of this is that you are getting together as a family!

The Case for an Album: Why albums are important

F
rom time to time, I like to peruse a particular online wedding forum where I have learned a lot about how to be a better photographer and how to provide a better experience for my clients. Recently, there was an article posted there that provided fodder for a pretty thoughtful discussion.  
 
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathleen-trenske/the-case-against-good-enough_b_2967170.html  
 
The author makes a very good case for getting a classic wedding album made. This line in particular stood out to me:  
"Of all the things you spend money on for your wedding, your wedding photographs are the ONLY thing that will increase in value over time."  
Yes, yes I know it's a "salesy" thing that photographers love to say, but the fact remains that it's TRUE! Years and years from now, your photos are what will help bring those beautiful memories flooding back.  
 
I want to tell a short little story about the first time I saw my grandparent's wedding album. I was about 9 years old and we only drove down to New Mexico to visit them maybe once every 3 years or so. My brother and I were visiting one summer and we were too hot and tired one afternoon to slather ourselves in bug spray and run around on their farm outside. So instead we decided to explore the house where my dad grew up. We entered my grandma's "blue" room (My grandmother was a devout Catholic and had an entire formal living room complete with the traditional plastic covered floral couches and an entire shrine created for the Virgin Mary. The focal point of this room was the electric blue colored carpet and I thought it was the epitome of high style when I was a youngster.) Anyway, we weren't really allowed to play in this fancy room but we snuck in there and discovered a big book on the coffee table. Inside it were old B&W photos of a pretty lady with 50's style cat glasses wearing a short white dress and a young dude holding her hand as they ran out of a church. I was fascinated with this book. Who were these people? They looked vaguely familiar! As I looked through the photos it suddenly dawned on me that I was looking at old pictures of my grandma and grandpa on their wedding day. I wanted to sit and look at that book all day. I was enthralled with the photographic evidence before me that my grandparents had once been young. My crotchety mean old grandparents had once been young and carefree and had a bunch of young friends gathered all around them. And they looked so DAMN HAPPY! I think this may have been one of the first times I actually spent time thinking about the fact that everyone has a history. I could go on about what an incredible experience it was for me to stumble upon this little treasure but I won't bore you with the sappy details;)  
 
I am so thankful that they chose to buy this little piece of their history. What if all they had bought were their negatives and never chose to print those memories? Would I have ever seen them? Would I have ever had the chance to get that rare glimpse of who they had once been? That, my friends is priceless.  
 
And I get it. Wedding albums are expensive. The albums I create for my clients are custom designed and are handmade using gorgeous leathers and stylish fabrics. Each photo that is included is individually retouched which takes time. They are truly little pieces of art. So, yes they aren't cheap. But that's no excuse to skip creating an album altogether. These days, most wedding photographers include the digital files from your wedding day in your package so you have the power to take those priceless photos and create your own wedding album for a more affordable price. Just make sure you are getting the best quality materials you can get for the price. If the pricing seems too good to be true, it probably is. You want a book that will stand the test of time and not fall apart after a handful of viewings.  
 
The sad reality of our busy lives is that good intentions are just that. For many of us, sitting down to create a wedding album can prove to be frustrating to say the least. You must choose all of the photos that you want included which is a project in and of itself. And then figuring out a way to artfully display the sheer number of photos often requires learning new programs and software and who has time for that? I have a dirty little secret. I got married almost 2 years ago and even knowing how to touch up photos, design and create my own beautiful albums I've simply been too busy to create our wedding album. So I can imagine that it's 5 times worse for my clients who aren't in the industry. Life sure has a way of running away from you and before you know it, it's been 10 years since you got married and you never got around to creating that album.  
 
Do it now! Make your wedding album a priority. Make it a must-do part of your wedding, because it truly is. It doesn't have to be the most expensive, it just needs to be made. There's no substitute for an actual, physical book of your personal history that your family can gather around.  
 
Here are some photos just to give you a little inspiration!  
This is my latest and maybe my favorite sample album I've created to date! This is a 12x12" album with a canvas cover photo paired with a pearlescent white floral leather called "Shameless" partially on the cover, the spine and back cover. It makes the traditional white leather wedding album seem BORING!

This is a custom 9x12" wood cover paired with biker chic leather that has been engraved with my client's custom wedding logo.
Some of the leathers and materials my album company offers are so unique and intricate that they are available as an upgrade on your album. Here we have a 10x10" album that's been jazzed up using a gorgeous dark blue green leafy printed leather with a ton of texture called "Cabana." This leather is so pretty we choose not to pair it with anything else.
Here's a 12x12" album in a leather called "Bomber Jacket" with three 3" photo cutouts

This is the album I made for the same couple from above to show at consultations. It features a B&W metallic armour cover paired with a cool dark brown leather called "Biker Chic."

And this one is a 9.5x12" album with a color Armour metallic cover paired with a gorgeous metallic floral leather called "Lust." I like that at different angles the leather appears to be slightly different colors.

And here's another pretty example of that nice metallic looking leather called "Lust." Here it is on a 12x12" album with a 5x5" cover photo cut out. The accent stripe is on the spine in a black ostrich style leather called "Suspicion."

Some of the more fun albums take a leather that is commonly used as an accent and place it all over the album instead of just as an accent. Here is a 10x10" album with the "Datebook" leather allover.
Finao album with a cover cutout using the classy dark brown leather with diamond pattern called
And here is another pairing of "Datebook" with "Truffle" This time on a 16x12" horizontal album with a 5x5" photo cutout. This is actually an album that I created for my husband's dad. (Photo on the album by Yan Photo)

Datebook is always a favorite with my clients. It has a beautiful classic look to it as if it belongs in a fancy library. Here it is on a 12x12" square album with a 5x7" horizontal cover photo.

Datebook is a really popular leather and here it is paired with another very popular floral leather called "Secret Garden." This is definitely one of my favorites.

Here's another version of Datebook paired with Secret Garden. This time in a 10x10" album with a 4x4" cutout photo.

Here's a great black leather with a swirly floral design called Razzle Dazzle. It's paired with nice blue Wedgewood leather.

Another very popular accent leather is called "Komodo Dragon." Here it's the leather stripe down the middle and paired with a burnt orange kind of leather called "Krumble."

Here's "Komodo Dragon" on the spine paired with "Aquadisiac."
If you prefer a more overall textured look you could go the opposite way and do one of the accent leathers all over with a splash of color for your stripe. Here Komodo Dragon is paired with Aquadisiac again.
Here we have a 9x12" album using the gorgeous Komodo Dragon brown leather all over and the dark red wine colored "Rothschild" leather as the accent stripe. It looks amazing paired with Noah's tie in the 5x7" cover photo.
9x12
Here is Komodo Dragon again. This time paired with a different solid light green color stripe called "Willow Tree" on a 10x10" album with a 4x5" vertical cut out photo
10x10
This is the album I made for our wedding guestbook. We had our friends and family sign in on this pretty thing:) It's a 9x12" album with the 5x5" cover photo off-centered. We used a pretty brown "Komodo Dragon" leather all over with a nice soft brown suede called "Junkyard Dog" as the accent stripe.
9x12
I love to pair up a bold colored photo with a bold color and pattern. Here is the Armour metallic cover paired with the fun "Love Junky" leather.
Finao Love Junky and armour color photo cover
Here's Love Junky as an accent on the spine. It's paired with Bomber Jacket with a 4x5" cover photo on a standard 10x10" album.

Here is another version of Love Junky on the spine with the beautiful brown leather called Bomber Jacket. This time the couple opted to add a copper colored foil imprint with their names in the lower right hand corner of the album. The font they used is called "Pascal."

You can get a parent album created for roughly half the cost of the full sized album. The design and retouching is already done which allows for a deep discount on copies for your family. Here we have an 8x8" parent album with a 4x4" photo cutout in the gorgeous Rothschild red leather.
Beautiful 8x8
If you aren't sure about having an actual metallic cover photo you could compromise and go with one of the awesome metallic leathers. Here is the silver "Saturday Night Special" paired with the popular "Suspicion" black dotted accent stripe leather.
Finao Saturday Night Special silver leather paired with black Suspicion Ostrich Style Center vertical Cover stripe
Same leather combination, different placement. "Suspicion" on the spine, "Saturday Night Special" allover.
Suspicion is commonly used as an accent leather but here it's used as the main leather with a horizontal access stripe made of hot pink suede called Lusterin' Hot on a 10x10" cover with a 5x5" cover photo.
Suspicion Polka Dot Black leather paired with hot pink suede called Lusterin' Hot from Finao Albums
Some couples want a nice gray color for their album but would like something less metallic and more natural. "50 Shades" is a great option. Here it is in a 12x12" sized album with a 5x4" cover photo.
Here's a fun album where they chose an asymmetrical stripe for the cover paired with a 4x5" corner photo. The allover gray leather is called "Fifty Shades" and the crinkly looking blue stripe fabric is called "Crave." This is a 12x12" sized album which allows more flexibility than some of the smaller sizes with placement of the cover photo and the accent stripe.
Here's Fifty Shades again but this time the client opted for a more classic wedding album look by opting for no photo on the cover and doing an imprint on the cover instead. I love the simple cool look of this. Not all of the leathers are good for imprinting but the more simple ones have it as an option. Here the clear imprint is shown on a 9x12" horizontal album in the lower right hand corner of the front cover.

Here is a closer detail photo of what the imprinting looks like. The album in front is done with the Pascal font with Copper colored foil in the lower right hand corner of the album. The album in the backdrop is a clear imprint done with the Coronation font in all capital letters.

Here's a simple, classic album with a subtle clear imprint of just the bride and groom's names in the Coronation font. This is a 10x10" with Wedgewood blue leather.

Here we have a simple, classic 10x10" wedding album using the blue Wedgewood leather with white imprinting in the Coronation font.
Here we have an 8x8" family session album with the faux black leather called Texas Tea that has been imprinted with Coronation font in copper.
I also have fun non-leather options to choose from. Here is a fabric called "Marsalis" paired with a classic black leather called "Miami Ink."
Another non-leather option is this beautiful gray blue colored woven fabric from the Wonderland collection called "Looking Glass." Here it is being used on a 9x12" horizontal album with no accent stripe with a 4x5 photo cut out for a simple and classic wedding album.

Here's another album utilizing the beautiful natural linen of the "Wonderland" collection. This is an 8x8" family session album with a 4x4" cover photo in the "Earl Grey" color.
If you prefer more natural classic type of albums there are plenty of options for those too. Here is an album using a nice brownish/olive greenish color leather called "Havana."
This one is a blue leather called "Wedgewood" paired with a soft suede called "Copenhagen."
My client preferred a nice natural brown leather that would fit in with the decor of their living room. Here it is in "Dulce de Leche."
I wanted something more wild to show clients so I did her same album in a yellow leather called "Saffron" and an accent stripe called "Firefly."
And her parents got to choose their own leathers that they preferred. Here it is again in "Ipanema" on the spine with a nice white leather called "Optimism" allover.
Speaking of parent albums, I have options for creating smaller and more inexpensive versions of your big wedding album to give as gifts for parents and grandparents too. They make awesome holiday presents for them. Here is a small 5x5" album which was a copy of the couple's album to give to the bride's mom. This one is in a faux leather called "Whitesnake."
Here's a beautiful sunny and cheerful engagement guestbook in a fabric called "Mimosa" from the Brocades collection.
Here's another parent album copy with thin paper pages. This is a nice inexpensive way to get a copy of the main album. This one is 8x8" with Moonflower (a silk brocade fabric) on the cover.
Moonflower Finao Press Album
This adorable little copy of a larger main album has cute little ribbons attached to tie it closed when it's not being looked at. The cover material used here is a richly textured fabric called "Flourish."
Here is a parent album I created for my husband's mom. This is done as a 9x12" horizontal album with a 4x4" cutout photo on the cover. This is one of my favorite non-leather options called "Narcism." (Photo on cover of album by Yan Photo)

Now parent albums have thicker pages instead of paper pages and can take advantage of the non-leather swatches available. This is a 10x10" Finao Playbook album using a faux black leather called Texas Tea. It's a great option for those who want a leather look at a more affordable price as well as those who prefer not to use leather products. This shows the album with a 4x4" photo cutout on the cover.

And this bad boy is my own personal wedding album:) It's large and heavy at 12x16" I wanted a nice pretty floral leather to go with our rustic style wedding and this pretty soft brown one called "Wallflower" fit the bill perfectly. And I fell in love with that black sparkle swatch called "Glitteratzi" and had to have it. I like the contrast of the two. I've also been really into the off centered photo cutouts so that's what I did for our album:)
