What to Wear for Family Portraits

This is our most commonly asked question. We recommend medium to dark jewel tones. Darker shades tend to be more slimming. Long sleeves and slacks or skirts work best. Denim and khaki always photograph well. Consider the location of your portrait session when making clothing choices. Outdoor session often have a more natural look, so casual clothing may work best. Formal sessions are most often done in studio.
