Don’t Panic! I know what you’re thinking, “I’ve booked my photoshoot (yay!), but I don’t know what to wear for desert family photos!”
I’ve got you mama! Take a deep breath.
Follow my tried and true styling tips and it will all come together smoothly.
Let’s start with you…
Find that perfect dress or blouse that makes you feel amazing, then build everyone’s look around you. Some of my favorite online shops for mama include: Morning Lavender, Roolee, Anthropologie, Jaus, Vici, Muse Apparel, Ivy City Co, and Revolve. Head over to my blog post on ‘Styling Her’. Dresses in desert family photos never disappoint!
Coordinate their colors with your outfit, then layer it up! Ties, suspenders, vests, belts, simple necklaces, headbands, styled hats (no sport caps), rolled hems, cardigans, or flower crowns…. it all adds dimension and that lovely cozy-factor in your photos. Check out my blog posts on ‘Styling Him’ and ‘Styling Children’.
I highly recommend choosing neutral colors and solids versus bright colors and busy prints. This detail allows you and your love-soaked family to shine in your photos, rather than being distracted by bright busy clothes.
Don’t forget to keep it neutral in the footwear too. I’d even pass on socks if possible. It’s the new look right?! I love a gentleman (or little man) in a khaki pant, with a little roll at the hem and loafers with no socks
Whether you are all dressed up or super casual, I’ll be cueing you into the best poses to capture your gorgeous features and sweet connections with one another. There will be a few standard portraits to warm up, but we’ll mostly focus on lifestyle portraits to highlight all the magic! Dresses for twirling, sweaters for cuddling, and hats for getting playful all help in bringing your photos to the next level!
