Thanks so much ladies!!!
Happy Tuesday Folks! Last summer I got to work with a photographer while Whitney was out with her sweet baby {image here and here}, and then again a couple months ago {images here and here}. Her name is Katie Oblinger and she is crazy talented. It was so much fun getting to work with a professional for once. Well, Katie reached out to us and asked if we would like to work with her in order to make some suggestions for styling a family photo shoot. We absolutely loved this idea, and we jumped on board. We thought it would be fun to create some outfit boards and tips on what to wear for a family photo shoot for those of you who are gearing up for holiday photos.

Style Tips:

  1. Keep it in the family: When choosing colors, try and keep everyone in the same color family. For these particular boards, I chose burgundy, navy and tan, while keeping denim a neutral. Other ideas would be red, navy and tan, or light pink, gray and white. It creates a cohesive look and keeps the focus on those beautiful smiling faces.
  2. Do me a solid: Solid colors work best for clothing, but plaids used in moderation work well too. Stay away from skinny stripes because they can come out odd looking in photos. Wide solid stripes are fine.
  3. More is More: For Mom’s makeup, a brighter lip and cheek than you would normally wear is ideal, especially if you are going for some black and white options.
  4. No Heavy Metal: Keep jewelry light. Now is not the time to bust out that brand new statement necklace. Remember, it’s all about those cute faces and not Great Granny’s Antique Brooch.
  5. Keep em’ comfy- When dressing the guys and kids, remember to keep them comfortable. Put them in something that they will be happy wearing. We all know how hard it is to capture everyone smiling, and a scratchy shirt will sabotage your session before it even begins. Don’t forget to bribe them with an ice cream cone that’s bigger than their face when it’s over!

We hope that these tips will help you plan your upcoming family photo sessions and if you love in the Atlanta area give Katie a call! She is super sweet and does an amazing job.
