What to Wear – Family Portraits {St Charles Family Photographer}

This blog has moved to the main studio website.  Please read this post and many newer ones here: St Charles Family Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

My friend and fellow photographer, Danielle Neil, from Columbus, OH,  posted some “what to wear ideas” last month on her blog.  Now that we’re moving into the Family Portrait season, it’s a great time to think about how you will coordinate your family for your own portraits.  There’s always the jeans and t-shirt idea, but what about something a little classier?

Often, it is easiest to shop at one or two stores.  When clothing stores release new clothing lines, they usually have a common theme or color and that helps you coordinate them.  I’m often asked questions if  they should match or coordinate?  My preference is that you coordinate because each person gets to be his or her own personality while still looking good within the group.

Now is the time to schedule your summer portrait session.  You want to have your first choice for your family photos!  We already have a number of June and July sessions scheduled and will continue to fill the calendar.  There are even a couple of fall sessions already booked!

I hope these examples and the ones from Danielle will give you some ideas with your own summer outfit choices.  Have a TERRIFIC time shopping.  Don’t stress over it, and we’ll have a great time.  Remember to call me soon for both summer AND fall appointments.

Your choice for family and group photography in St. Charles, St. Peters and the surrounding St. Louis area.

    I love some of your examples of clothing to wear for family photo sessions. And, Danielle’s suggestions are always so dang cute. Great idea.

    I always love looking at what-to-wear ideas. That’s always such a stressful part of a session. I am sure this will make it easier for clients.

    I love the “what to wear” suggestions, but I have to remark on the family with the dogs. I absolutely love it when families include their dogs in the family portraits. Our dogs are such a big part of my own family and I cannot imagine not including them. You can really tell how much a part of that family their dogs are 🙂
