Thank you so much for stopping by my website ,one of the biggest questions I get as a Philadelphia Family photographer is what should people wear to their sessions. I have created a board for each type of session family, maternity and senior sessions. The Philadelphia and King of Prussia area have so many beautiful area’s to photograph for families, children and pregnancy sessions that picking the location can be the easy part. Picking outfits out for your session sometimes can be the tricky part.
I always tell my clients that everyone doesn’t have to be matching from head to toe. What I think works really great is picking a color family and working those colors through out everyone in the families outfits. I have posted picture a below that I think is a really good example of it. This couple is matching but each is wearing something a little different that suits their own styles. The wife picked out a necklace and a belt that had the same color as her husbands shirt, so she had that color in her outfit as well.
I recommend to stay away from bright neon colors because the sun will reflect on them and cause a color cast on your skin and they can be difficult to remove when editing your images
I have went through Pinterest and put together some suggestions to make it a little easier. Below is a link to the board I put together for what to wear for your maternity sessions.The board below are just a guideline or a starting point. When putting your outfits together you should make sure that they reflect who you are and your personality.
This first links below is for maternity sessions. I have included on the pointers board ideas for different types of outfits and colors and also ideas for dads as well to compliment moms outfit colors.
The next link is for the pinterest board of outfit ideas for engagement sessions. Your engagement session should tell a story about you as a couple and your love. On the board are several ideas, there are outfits for a fun session, for a romantic session, a casual session etc.
The link below is for some ideas for Senior photography session ideas. I have included some fun outfit choices and outfits for all different sessions and for both girl and boy photography sessions.
The Last link I have is for family sessions. My recommendation for family sessions is to pick a color or two and have each family member wearing that color some where different in their outfit. Not having everyone wearing the same exact outfit, this way everyone’s personalities are represented and everyone is comfortable in clothes they like. Below is the link to some family session outfit ideas.
