Family photoshoots Cirencester
So you have booked a session in with me. Now your thinking about what you can wear. Now I know this can be a bit tricky, its sometimes hard to know what to wear on a regular day without the added pressure of having photos taken by a professional photographer. I know you and your family want to look your best and I will try to help you out. After all we want your photos displayed on your walls for all to see so we want you all looking your best.
Your Outfit is an important Factor
Tip 1 choose a Colour Palate
Autumn is a season of warm colours, golden yellows and orange. Aim to coordinate your look using these tones.
Yellows, olive, burgundy, denim, brown, creams,deep greens.These are all colours that go well with natures beautiful backdrop.
Tip 2 Warm and comfortable, Family Photos in The Cotswolds
It can be a little chilly and sometimes damp in North France during October. Although the shoot wont be too long, I would still suggest you wear a few layers just in case so everyone is comfortable and happy.
Wear coats, they can always be removed. Knitted jumpers are great, they add texture and keep you warm.
Accessories will keep you cosy and can add colour and interest giving you a cohesive look as a family. Take a look here for a beautiful camel scarf from Zara.
Tip 3 Coordinate dont match.
Identical outfits and colours for the whole family rarely look good. You want to look like a stylish family not that your all wearing a uniform.
Pick a few colours that are flattering for everybody and have look through your wardrobes and put it altogether on the bed.
Choose a mix of plain colours, pattern and stripes and add a pop of colour such as a mustard or berry.
Tip 4 No big words or logos
Avoid large words across your clothes such as GAP, eyes will get drawn to these.
Children's character clothes with pictures and faces will do the same.
Another big No No is neon coloured clothing like on high vis and sport clothing.
Tip 5 glasses
If you wear reactive lens glasses that change colour when outdoors, please bring another pair or remove them altogether.
If you do have antiglare coated glasses please use those.
Tip 6 Shoes
Shoes, wear sensible non slip shoes, damp leaves can be slippery I dont want any falls. boots look fab so if you have nice autumn boots now is the time to get them on.
