Family Portraits – What to Wear | Baltimore MD

Spring is here!  And with it comes family and child portraits!  I’m asked quite a bit if I do family portraits, as many see baby pictures and assume that is all I photograph – no no no, I enjoy working with children and their families as well 🙂

Here’s a little tip for what to wear for family portraits.  These families had some great ideas, and I wanted to share them with you.  Choose a color that you like, and coordinate your entire family with those colors.  You don’t want to be “matchy matchy” and match everything exactly, but different styles but in the same color family are an excellent choice!  The main thing you want to avoid is clashing patterns.  Going with textures as opposed to patterns is a safe route to take, although a subtle pattern mixed with solids is fine.

Beautiful beautiful families 🙂
