What to Wear?  Family session ideas…

This session just made me smile!  I had so much fun and these kids are so full of personality.  Of course, I loved the colors of their outfits and yes mom’s shoes were awesome!  I put these outfit choices in my “what to wear” category…sometimes when it comes to your family photo session the big question is “what do we wear?!?!”  My biggest tip is to pick a color palette.  It is the artist in me.  I say break it up…gone are the days of the safe look of khaki and white.  Let’s have some color and not be so matchy matchy.  Even if your going with neutrals, let’s break it up a little with one more neutral or color.  Pick a palette of 3 colors and if you have a pattern keep it on the kids…unless your amazing at matching patterns (and I have clients that look like a catalog shoot in that pattern coordinated type of way).  And nothing beats a good pair of shoes or a favorite dress to start your inspiration.  Ok I’m so drawn to shoes…I only seem to wear flip flops but I love looking at shoes.

As a family photographer, my goal is to create images that reflect who you are as a family.  The real you so keep your outfits within your own personal style but maybe kick it up a notch with a little bit of color or some great accessories.  I want to create a wonderful experience as well as amazing images and the choice of “what to wear” should be a fun one.  So as always if you need help, you can send me pictures of your ideas and I can help out.  This family always makes my job so much fun and what a wonderful shoot!  I love it when a simple day in the park turns out so perfect 🙂

Urban Session G’s growing up

Urban Session…G. is growing so fast!

So what is an urban session?  It is a city inspired session.  For an urban shoot the details usually include rough walls, cool doors, and city streets.  It is “urban” inspired!  We went around the streets and alleyways in San Marco looking for just the right spots.

When you’re doing a kids urban session, the most important aspect is picking the right accessories and outfits.  Here her outfit is a little vintage inspired.  The vest is lace giving a nod to her girly attitude.  The button up shirt is in a neutral tone with just the right amount of detail to complement the vest.  Finishing it off with a skirt over her leggings…the heart chain just adds the right touch of bling and edge.  Overall, I think it works.  For this age, just a slight edge fits the mark.  And the outfit totally fits her personality so does the nail polish in two different colors!
