what to wear

With almost every single photo session I am asked the one big question that is on everyone's mind:

*This is my family and what we wore for our photo session*

This question terrifies people, causes them to lose sleep, and even causes some to avoid taking pictures all together! (the last one is just unacceptable folks....) Well, have no fear. I am here to help you calm down.
You can do this.
I am here to help!  :)
I had my family photographed by the amazing Megan Squires Photography, so I know EXACTLY what you are going through. I actually started having dreams about what we should wear!! I thought I would go crazy. I had to remind myself what I always tell my clients.
I follow these 3 simple rules:
#1 - Mom picks her clothes FIRST! "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" This is SO true when it comes to pictures. Moms, pick out your outfit and then match everyone else to YOU! I am serious! You will be glad you did!
#2 - Pick 3 or 4 colors for your clothing. For our photos I chose  orange, light blue and grey. We are not ALL wearing ALL of the colors, but our outfits are made up of these colors. This way you coordinate, but are not too "matchy matchy".
#3 - Be comfortable! If you don't normally wear high heels, then DON'T! We didn't even wear shoes for our family pictures because that was US! You want your family to shine, so be YOURSELF!!
The most important thing?   HAVE FUN!
Here are some of the amazing photographs from our session. How do you think I did planning our outfits?
