Mustard yellow and Green color combination

Pops of yellow focus the eye on key individuals in a photo. For example, this beautiful family of four chose to have mom wear the brightest color. See how you immediately notice her as the central figurehead?

Basics of Family Photos and Outfit Organization

1. Keep it simple

When organizing your outfits, start with your preferred clothing and décor style. Naturally, you will feature your framed photos in your home. This is a great place to start.

2. Mom’s Outfit First

Next, plan mom’s outfit and build the rest around her. Pick a color palette and work within it.

3. No Matchy Matchy

Allow for individuality amongst your family members. Coordinate while mixing solids and patterns.

4. Accessorize

Accessories spice up your photos and act as props. Choose from hats, scarves, jackets, glasses and jewelry. As your photographer takes your photos, interact with your accessories. It gives you something to do with your hands.

5. Allow time to order and try on clothing

Don’t make the mistake of ordering your outfits the week of your photo shoot. Leave plenty of time to exchange sizes.

6. Choose comfortable items

During your family portraits, you will be put in uncomfortable sitting and standing poses. Beforehand, ensure nothing inappropriate shows. If you feel good in your outfit, you’ll look great in photos.
