Doesn’t being out in 110+ degree heat with a fabulous frock on, a face full of make up, high heels and husbands/kids just sound like a walk in the park?! HA! Forget that! I can’t help but notice that practically every photographer I have given a “LIKE” to on Facebook is offering Fall Sessions or Mini Sessions! Here in Arizona, fall marks the return of outdoor anything, especially photography. We’re finally back on the map for endless photo and outfit possibilities!
Last year I posted some easy tips for taking great photos on THE LifeStyled COMPANY blog; refresh your memory or read it for the first time here. Now that you’ve got your pearly whites ready for some camera action, “what to wear for family photos” flashes across your mind!
Kiddos are fairly easy to style… simply because they look so friggin cute in everything. One piece of advice: layer. Layer everyone and layer them like crazy. The proportions on kids aren’t nearly as critical as they are on adults, so again, everything just ends up looking cute!
Husbands are also pretty easy simply because they throw some goo in their hair, have a 5 o’clock shadow and spray a little starch on their shirt and they, too, look perfect!
It’s us ladies who require just a bit more planning and preparation. Don’t spill your Pumpkin Spice Latte shaking in fear! We can do this, and I guarantee you’re going to look more photogenic than ever before!
Try some of these styling ideas for colorful and dynamic family photos!
The Red/Orange/Yellow color scheme is perfect for indoor or outdoor photos as there are natural elements to these colors but also a component that pops. You will pop right off of the photo with these bright tones! If you’ve got dark hair, this is also an awesome compliment to the rich tones in your locks. Be sure you don’t mistake the yellow featured on this board for one that should be worn during spring and summer months which will look like a brightly color Popsicle among the crisp air of a fall photo shoot!
