You know what big family groups often struggle with? Wardrobe! As an Illinois family photographer, I’ve learned it’s pretty hard to coordinate the whole family for a cohesive look. I mean, it’s hard enough to find an outfit for ourselves, much less match the rest of the group’s style! Plus, we’re working with each family member’s individual wardrobe, which can sometimes be a little limiting (I’m looking at you, dads!)

Well, lucky for you, I can help! I provide my clients with virtual wardrobe consultations to make sure you’re all feeling and looking your best. This is a complementary service I offer in all of my family session packages! After all, I want you to love these family photos!

Complimentary Wardrobe Consultations | Family Photographer Illinois

Here’s how it works:

-Before your session, we’ll hope on a phone call, Zoom, or text

-I’ll ask you some info about what you want your family photo session to look and feel like, and I’ll have you describe your family dynamic a little bit!

-Then, I’ll give you some suggestions of color palettes and clothing styles for every member of your family

That way, the photos feel cohesive (aka they look nice hanging up next to each other in your family room). Here are some of the ways you can choose to theme your wardrobe for your family photo session!

Neutral Colors

The neutral, slightly warm color palette is one of my favorites for family photo sessions! Everyone probably has something neutral and it allows for all the photos to feel so put-together! Double-bonus, if you’re getting your family photos done in the fall, choosing warmer neutrals that complement the changing leaves makes for extra gorgeous photos!

Light & Bright

Moment of appreciation for this sweet couple and their beautiful baby girl! If your family photo session is in the spring or summer, choosing a light color palette is perfect! Pairing white with different pastel shades, like they did here with the pastel pink, gives such a bright and airy feel to the photo session. It perfectly matches the gorgeous spring day!

Shades of Blue

I don’t know why, but there’s just something about blue that looks great on everyone! Whether it’s blue jeans, or a blue shirt, blue just pops in front of the camera, especially outside! I’m sure everyone in your family has blue jeans, so ask everyone to wear their denim and a blue shirt, or a blue dress! I promise, the shades of blue will compliment each other beautifully, and everyone will be comfy in their outfits!
