- Matching outfits and everybody wearing the same color. It just doesn't look natural and therefore the photos will look forced.
- Strong graphic patterns. Anything that takes away from your face is not a good choice. Strong contrasting stripes, words, or graphic tees will all do this.
- Less is more and simple is key.
As far as children go, I often think it's fun if you let them pick out their own outfit. When you look back at your images in years to come you will remember that morning and how your son or daughter just loved those jeans or that dress, or even that Superman cape!
Short answer: Make sure everyone in your family is wearing something they love and feel comfortable in. Below is an example of a fun family style. I can't wait to see what you wear to your session!
