1. Create a color theme

Coordinating around a color theme to create the best images for family groups.  Choose 1-3 saturated colors (think red, yellow, blue, green, orange, or purple) and mix and match so everyone is within the theme.  Choosing colors on opposite sides of the color wheel creates beautiful parings, or you can also choose closer tones for a look with less contrast. 

Once you know your color theme, choose 1-2 nuetrals to pair it with.  This includes browns, creams, whites, greys, and denims.  Try to have color AND nuetral peices for both tops and bottoms to mix the colors thoroughly.

2. Dress in layers

Weather permitting, layers look GREAT in photographs.  They add depth, texture, and variety to your final gallery.  They are an easy way to add more looks to your photos without a full outfit change.  Scarves, hats, hackets, jewelry, layered shirts, and even a change of shoes from flats to heels or boots all provide more interest, and more options.

DO!

3. Wear something you feel comfortable wearing 

Most people take much better photographs when they are comfortable in their clothes.  No matter how cute your outfit, if you feel self conscious or physically uncomfortable, it will translate in your images!  Pick something that makes you feel good, and that will come through as well.

Kind words

Our experience was wonderful!  Colleen was so easy to get along with and flexible with our family.  She took some wonderful posed and natural shots.  In fact one of my favorites is a picture of us laughing at each other not posing for the camera.  It truly captures our family.

Our experience was friendly, comfortable, and easy – the the turn-around time on the photos was great!  The best was the hot chocolate on a very cold day!  But seriously, it was the interaction with the kids to keep them engaged
