-Choose coordinating colors, a good start is picking a base color (a neutral color) and then choose 2-3 colors to make it pop. Don't be afraid to mix colors or patterns as long as they coordinate with one another, and remember that having the 3-4 colors is just a guide not everyone has to be wearing all of the colors.
-Don't wear any clothing with distracting logo's, brand names, or characters. Doing so only distracts the attention away from the subject, which then defeats the purpose of getting nice family photos done!
- Don't forget about footwear!! No one wants to see ratty old sneakers or flip flops in your photos! Remember a photo lasts a lifetime wear nice shoes! :)
-Layering or accessorizing is a great way to add not only dimension to your photos but your own style as well! Don't be afraid to wear that hat or scarf or jewelry! These photos are to showcase you and your family, so be unique, put your own flare into it!
- Last but not least wear something COMFORTABLE! If you or anyone on the family is uncomfortable in what they are wearing that discomfort is sure to show through in the photos.
