Ahhhh the holiday season is upon us! If you are anything like me, you send out Christmas cards every year. I personally like to have them done super early, so I contacted my photographer friend back in late August or early September to set up our family shoot for October. And of course, the minute I set up the shoot, I started brainstorming outfit ideas. After location, I feel like the outfits are what will set the tone for the rest of the shoot. Today is the day, and I spent a good amount of time deciding on what we would wear.
I'm not going to share our outfits with you - you'll have to check back for the photos to see that! But I am going to share six tips with you on choosing outfits for your family photos.
At the end of the day, if you have a good photographer, your family's beauty will show, regardless of what you are wearing. And while I know we all want to look our best, don't worry about being "perfect". Your photographer's job is to make you look your best!
But MOST important, remember that "you're never fully dressed without a smile." Don't stress over what happened five minutes before you arrived. Smile, and enjoy the time with your family. That is what you want those photos to convey - not how long you spent putting together the perfect outfit or scouting for the perfect location.
