What to wear for your family photo shoot in Prescott

Sep 19, 2018

Choose Aris Affairs Photography for your family photo shoot in Prescott.No matter what season it is in Prescott, if you’re gathering your family together for a photo shoot, Aris Affairs Photography has some great ideas for how to dress.

Focus, excuse the pun, on one person. The patriarch? The matriarch? The new baby? Pick out the colors for one, then you can begin to match everyone else in the picture.

Did we say ‘match’? We mean complement, go together, fit in. We don’t mean identical! Now that the fall is here, complement each other’s outfits by dressing in warm, rich, saturated greens, browns and oranges. If you’re looking to complement each other’s winter look, dress in varying shades of whites, beiges, grays and light blues or taupes for a striking look.

One great way to dress up neutral colors is with accessories. Belts, jewelry, pashminas, scarves, and ties can take your outfits from average to amazing. For our Prescott cowboys think Bolo ties!

There’s no reason to pack a bag. One outfit that you’re happy with is fine. Changing from one outfit to another is time consuming and usually not fun… especially for the men. The only exception is for infants or your littlest toddlers. Sometimes accidents happen.

Of course if your photo shoot takes place outdoors, dress for the season and dress for comfort. Dressing for a fall or winter shoot in Prescott could include stylish coats, gloves, hats and boots.

And last but not least here are a few things to avoid:

  • Trends – Nothing will date your photos faster.
  • Neon colors – They cause skin tone/color cast issues.
  • Sunglasses – People want to look into your eyes. Yes, they do.
  • Avoid stark white
  • Avoid words on your clothes – People will be reading you instead of seeing you.
  • Gym shoes – Just don’t.

If these suggestions are stirring you to schedule a family photo shoot, you can book an appointment today by calling your Prescott family photographer, Aris Affairs Photography, at 928-642-4049.
