What to Wear for Family Portraits

For family portraits, following a color palette will help take the stress off of clothing selection.  This can be simple like jeans + black & white or something more adventurous.  My best advice is to look online for some inspiration and not over-think it!  Simple patterns or solid colors usually photograph best, but don’t be afraid of some texture.

A simple color pallet connects family members.  Also take the occassion into consideration.  For holiday cards, deeper colors and jewel tones compliment the feel of the season as well as long sleeves, jackets, or sweaters.  If you plan to hang a large portrait in your home, wear colors that compliment your aesthetic.  Think a polished version of what everyone usually wears.

Matching outfits work best for siblings rather than entire families.  It creates an emphasis on the environment and faces, but can look strange for larger groups.
