I LOVE this time of year – not just for the obvious reasons, but also to be hired as a professional photographer for all the family photo sessions. Everyone gets all dressed up to look their best and is excited to have updated family photos. Most people’s intentions for this time are just to send out Holiday Cards to everyone they know, but with the planning of neutral outfits, these photos can be hung on your walls, all year round. Think of the frame or canvas groupings that can be in your home all the time!
That’s why with this family’s session, we decided to go with neutral outfits and soft pops of color so they can enjoy these photos in more way than one. I can already see the photos being printed large in wonderfully in a hallway or in their living room. The “Golden Hour” treated us so nicely, looking so glowy and dreamy in the vineyard leaves and olive trees. I know this family had a priority of Holiday Cards so we tried to plan accordingly to one or two designs that they specifically liked. I can definitely see a Holiday Card design stating “Joyful” etc. in shiny, gold foil writing to match the golden sunshine.
Melissa was so wise to choose a cream dress to be neutral with everyone else’s outfits. She also planned so well tying in her husband’s shirt color to match the little light blue pocked on her son’s shirt – amazing! Although her daughter’s pink shirt was the only pink out of all the outfits, it totally worked since it stood out on its own with a pop of color. Having a successful family portrait session means a whole lot more than just booking your professional photo session – it means coordinating your outfits to the T!
