What to wear for spring family portraits

Mar 6, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can create beautiful art with your family portraits in Prescott.“What should we wear?” is a question often asked when people are planning their photography session. Since wardrobe choices, fashion styles, and color trends are always changing and are such a large part of a portrait session, Prescott family photographer Aris Affairs Photography offers tips to looking your best in your spring family photos.

1. Choose Your Favorite Feel-Good Colors
Do you have a long-time favorite or do you feel your best wearing the latest trendy color? Whether you’re a family of adults or you have a host of small children, looking good requires being happy and comfortable. That’s why when you’re planning your photo session, it’s so important to choose colors you and your entire family feel great about. And even if people have different favorites, it’s easy to do. Just follow Tips #2 and #3!

2. Choose Complementary Colors
Instead of dressing in a ‘matchy-matchy’ style, families tend to look their best by wearing outfits that go together rather than match. Different colors that complement one another create more interest and appeal. While you might be tempted to instruct everyone to dress in your favorite pastel, please don’t. Opt instead for including colors in everyone’s outfit that pair well together. A great way to incorporate complementary colors is by adding them in light layers or by adding accessories.

3. Incorporate Accent Colors
Layers and accessories are a perfect way of adding complementary colors but they can also elevate your wardrobe choices. A rather-plain neutral palette can be transformed into elegant simplicity with a bold accent color. Jewelry, scarves, shoes, hats and ties are all various ways you can thoughtfully accent your look.

4. Consider the final location
Do you already know where you want to hang your new family portrait? Consider if the color theme you’re thinking of for your photo session will clash with the wall color in your den, library, or living room before you make your final selections. Try to visualize where you want to display your portrait before you make your color choices.

While you’re planning your family photo session and considering all the color and style options available to you, don’t forget that being comfortable, being yourself, and being happy brings out the best in everyone. If you’re ready to schedule your spring family portrait, call Prescott family photographer, Aris Affairs Photography today at 928-642-4049.
