Spring is almost here and I'm so excited to get outside and start shooting again! It's been a long cold winter.
This year I'm really looking forward to seeing new blossoms bud. I'm hosting orchard blossom mini session at Kissel Valley Fruit Farm in Lititz on April 9, 2022. These sessions are the perfect opportunity to get some updated family photos, pictures in your Easter outfits, and mommy & me photos for Mother's Day. You can sign up for a time slot here.
We will use the trees as our props and you get to decide what look you'd like to have based on your outfits. For every session I do, I send a very detailed style guide. It includes information about what types of clothing compliment the body best, how to coordinate colors with your family, how to accessorize, but also how to prep your children and less than enthused family members. It's so valuable and it's a service I'm so happy to offer.
While I work on adding images to my style guide, I thought I could put together some mood boards for those of you who are visual people like myself. I also have lot of outfit examples on my Client Styling Board on Pinterest.
Here are the top styling tips:
Pick one or two main colors, and one accent color. I suggest using colors that you use when decorating your home, then your photos will match when you hang them up.
Avoid patterns and text, opt for texture and layers. If you want to use a pattern, use one that is subtle.
Coordinating, not matching. You want to look cohesive but not in the exact same outfits.
Here are some color and outfit examples:
(All of the images below are from Pinterest, Carters, and Baltic Born. I also love the kid's sections at Target and H&M and the men's section at Old Navy. I do not have any affiliation with these companies or websites and do not profit from you shopping there. )
For this post I'm going to share some monochromatic looks. I love when looks are mix and match with coordinating pieces. But I also think monochromatic looks (one color in different hues and shades) are really sharp. And it's a lot easier to coordinate with a big group in this way.
And, as always, I'm happy to look at photos of your outfit choices and help you narrow down what will look the best on camera.
