6 Easy Steps to What to Wear for your Portrait Session

Choosing your Outfits for your Family Portrait Session can sometimes feel like it is in the too hard basket and can often hold us back from getting the Family Portrait that we have always wanted.

But what if it was simple. What if I could show you how to choose your clothes, without tearing your hair out, without stressing yourself out and without spending hours thinking about it?

Sounds pretty good right?

To make it really simple, I suggest that you make it really simple and follow these 6 Easy Steps:

1. Choose Your Outfit First - Mums always have the least amount of clothes of anyone in the family and we often worry the most about what we will look like in our photo, so choose something that you feel comfortable and beautiful in and then move on to choosing your Families clothes.

 

2. Not too much Pattern - One or two people in patterns is fine, but if everyone is in patterns it can look busy and you lose the focus in the portrait, which is your family and their beautiful smiles. Avoid large logos and brand names as well, especially on mens and boys clothes.

 

3. Layers add great Texture and Depth - A scarf, a bolero, a cardigan or even a simple flower attached to a dress can add texture and depth to your outfits and your portrait.

4. Consider your environment - Think about where you will be having your Family Portraits. You probably don't want to be in your formal clothes at the beach or your shorts for a studio session.

 

5. Be Yourself and Choose Clothes that Represent You and Your Family - If you aren't dressy people in everyday life then don't be dressy people in your portraits. You want your Family Portraits to look like YOUR FAMILY!

 

6. Lay all your outfits out on the bed and make sure they look good together - Put them in different combinations and make sure they all go together well. If you like them they will be GREAT! If you are still unsure, then take some photos and text them through to me. I am more than happy to help you out.

 

I have put together a "How to" video to SHOW you just how easy it can be. Combined with my 6 Easy Steps to What to Wear for Your Portrait Session, you won't be left wondering any more.

Check it out below and let me know what you think. Are you ready to have your Family Portrait taken, because the biggest hurdle you had, just became a sand castle on the beach at high tide?

The Kennedy Family love playing at the beach, so it only seemed fitting that their Family Portraits be taken at the beach too. Lisa wanted to capture their family getting messy, playing together, but most of having fun in the way they do all the time. They wanted to capture them the way they are as a Family right now. They wanted something to remember the fun times they are having and be able to look back on them for many years to come. Their Portrait Session at Three Hearts Photography was a fun filled day of play, laughter and getting just a little bit wet, lol.

IF I ONLY HAD A TIME MACHINE – FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY BY THREE HEARTS PHOTOGRAPHY

September 23, 2019

If you only had a time machine, what would you do? Where would you go? Who would you visit? For me, it's pretty simple. I would want to see my Grandparents again and get as many photos of them as I could. Because for me, it's too late. I won't ever have that chance again. Don't be someone who leaves it til it's too late, because there is no such thing as a time machine.
