You should try and have your cloths picked in far as advanced as possible and make sure that your outfit choices are attractive and relaxed. In your mind, what does your family portraits look like? If your dream pictures are soft and wlegant then you want neutral colors with soft flowing fabrics with colors such as creams, very soft pastles, oatmeals, light browns, tans, grays and slate blues. If you are wanting to show off your fun and spirited side of your family choose coordinating colors, but nothing that’s matchy, matchy such as all the same color of blue. You want more bold accent colors such as hues of gray with yellow or bright red accents. Adding fun accessories like scarves, headbands, hats, etc. can add a modern twist and sassy flair to your images.
