Confession time: I LOVE accessories. I have so many purses and shoes that some might consider it a teeny weeny obsession. But seriously, it’s amazing what a couple of well-planned accessories can do to pull your whole look together! Take this fun summer look for example:
There aren’t a lot of accessories, but the ones that are there totally and completely “pop”. Little sister’s headband adds a little extra interest to the look and big sister’s belt with the flower is to die for! So cute! One of the things I love the most, though, no white tennis shoes! I know sneakers are comfy and have their place...but honestly, that place is not in your family photos. A lot of folks spend hours putting together their wardrobe, but forget about the shoes. At the last minute, they throw on their grubby tennis shoes and away they go. Let me tell you, they stand out like a sore thumb! I beg you…just don’t do it. Say no to the sneaker for your family portraits. And besides, it's HOT here in Tucson, and sandals, Converse or Toms are a perfect choice for dressing up your tootsies.
This family guide is filled with simple pieces of clothing. Nothing is matchy matchy, but it all coordinates perfectly. Little sister’s dress ties all the colors together. Simply gorgeous! LOVE the texture on Mom’s dress, as well as the girls’ shirts. There is also great use of layers for big sister with the cardigan over the tank…plus it adds another little pop of color.
Getting ready for your portrait session should be fun. Take your time. Play with colors, textures, layers. Most of all, be sure to find something everyone is comfortable wearing and that represents their personalities. Still overwhelmed and have no idea where to begin?

And remember, your session ALWAYS includes a wardrobe and session design consult - just 'cause I love ya!
