Lets talk about the most stressful part of a session… OUTFIT PLANNING! Or at least this is the most stressful part of getting my own family ready for a family session. Here are five ways to make this process as easy as possible.

1. Plan your outfits out ahead of time.

Once this is out of the way then it’s all about the fun part, capturing you and your loved ones. Planning them out in advance will give you time to decide between options and you wont be stressed on the day of your session.

2. Lay each outfit out next to each other.

This will help give you an idea of what flows and what doesn’t.

3. Choosing your colors.

The important part is choosing colors that coordinate not necessarily match. You will want to achieve a flawless cohesive look
rather than the matchy matchy look.

4. Keep location in mind when picking out your colors.

You will want your color pallet to flow with your background. If your session is at the beach the background will be more neutral whereas if you are at a scenic location or out in a field your background might be more bold and filled with color.

5. Accessories.

Its always so much fun to spice outfits up with a few accessories. It will bring style and variation to your images. Think ties, bow ties, suspenders, stylish hats, jewelry etc.
