do's and don'ts tips and tricks
Avoid outfits that mean that everyone is wearing the same color or pattern. This makes a photo look dull and outdated, not to mention taking away from your family's unique personalities and prefences. Choose a color palette and let everyone have their own takeon it. This iwll create a photo that is coordinated and classy without being cheesy or overdone.
Don't choose clothing that has large pictures, labels, logos or words on it. This often looks too casual for a photo shoot and detracts from the overall feel of a photo. People who look at the photos will notice the logo on your child's shirt before they notice your child's beaming smile. Logos and graphics on clothing can work in some cases. Themed photo shoots may call for these items. In general, howerver, try to stick with more classic clothes that will show something other than what clothing brands you favor.
If you choose a stylish, modern look for a photo shoot, make your clothing choices wisely. Chosing something that is overly trndy and doesn't have any classic features will make your photos look out-of-date long before they need to.
Stay away from white socks and sneakers. Neither bring anything to a photo, and both can actually detract from the overall look of a photo. If sneakers or white socks are part of a modern look, they may have their place.
If photo subjects have jewelry or accessories they wear all the time, make sure that they fit in with the look of a photo before wearing them in a photo. Watches, earrings, necklaces, and other acessories may need to be removed for a photo shoot.
Photos look more natural if you let a fresh haircut grow out a week or two before taking photos
