What to Wear

When planning your family portraits it is good to choose your attire carefully. You want to show each individual personality, but you also want the photos to look cohesive.

Here is how I chose our clothes for our family session. I made a dress for my baby girl that I wanted to show off. ;-) So we kind of worked everyone else's outfits to coordinate with her.
I laid out different combinations on the floor until I found a balance of color and pattern that I liked. Below is the result of my fashion work. ;-) Our cute little family...
and then my whole family! We're a good looking group if I do say so myself!
