What to Wear: Family Edition | AshLee Wethington Photography

So you booked your photography session and now are struggling with what to to wear?!? Let me help you! Here are some tips, tricks, and do’s and don’ts for modern photography sessions!

Do: Coordinate

Don’t: Match

Do: Plan around color schemes

Don’t: Wear neon colors (don’t forget to look at kids shoes!)

If you really want to wear those heels, either bring a back up or let’s talk about other location options. Most likely in a field we wont be seeing much of your shoes anyway, so if the shoes are your focal points, lets chose a location that makes sense!I love mixing florals and polkadots- but don’t mix plaid with plaid or strips with strips unless it is in small doses!Logos are a big no no if you are looking for a timeless and seamless look. If you have any questions about if it will work send me a message with a photo! I will help <3

Neon doesn’t photograph well- unless we are doing a throw back to the 80’s! That could be a lot of fun! I suggest we keep it simple and about the family engagement though and keep the neon colors for play time!This can seem scary when you are applying, but man does it make a difference in the photos!Bright colors are great, until they become distracting. Just be thoughtful when adding them to your wardrobe options!Knowing what to wear can be a daunting task but one of the best tips I can give is to add details and texture! I absolutely adore this color pallet! The colors flow so well together and add a little pop of color! If you are anything like me, I have tons of these tones in my closet already!Always a favorite here! Keep is simple and timeless!
