We have made out of winter and it’s time to show off some colour for your spring family photos! What do I wear is always the first question I receive from clients so I wanted to give you some ideas. Here are my top five tips for you this season.
First, go for pastels and other light, bright colours; they’re in style for spring. Consider pastel hues, such as mint green, soft pink, baby blue, and lavender. The vibrant tones are ideal in the great outdoors.
Second, spring is also the time for florals, stripes, and polka dots, so don’t be afraid to mix and match them. These designs are great for family portraits because they liven up the wardrobe. But, you should make sure the patterns go well together rather than distract from one another.
Third, I recommend that you dress in layers because the weather in the spring can sometimes be unpredictable. Adding layers and texture to the images is as simple as donning a cardigan, jacket, scarf, or cap. Also, they can be taken off if the temperature outside rises.
Fourth, while deciding what to wear for a photo session, it’s also important to keep the shoot’s setting in mind. Wear lighter, airier clothing if the photo session will take place in a park or garden. Wear darker colours and more formal attire may be preferable if the setting is an urban one.
Fifth, springtime props like sunglasses, hats, and flower crowns can inject some personality into the pictures. Feel free to match their accessories with their clothing.
The trick is to maintain a sense of unity without appearing too matchy-matchy in the ensemble as a whole. The idea is to show off your family’s individuality while capturing the spirit of spring.
