The right clothing can make a huge difference when dressing for your family portrait photography in Brisbane

The clothing you decide to wear for your family portraits must be selected with a lot of care and afterthought as it can greatly affect the outcome of the portraits. Coordinating your outfits with other family members is a frustrating but you need to select wisely so that the outfits blend well with the surrounding.

Autumn calls for outdoor photography and making use of the soft, warm and beautiful light in the late afternoon that melds splendidly with the browns, golds, and reds of autumn leaves. This is the perfect time for a family photo shoot to create stunning images that you will cherish and treasure for a lifetime. An autumn photo shoot session offers a world of possibilities and often it is up to your imagination to decide what is right for you. Here are some tips to help you coordinate the outfits of an entire family.

Layering is a good option

Layering when used appropriately can really add dimension to your photos. Layers create visual interest and will keep you warm and cozy while we’re outside playing in the leaves. Think tights, cardigans, blazers, and scarves.

Use striking props

Eye-catching props can add an element of visual interest to your family portrait photography in Brisbane. So, consider using a flower bouquet, a basket filled with oranges or pumpkins, a favorite stuffed toy or perhaps a quilt made by grandma.

Coordinate but do not match

You can start with a basic color palette and style one of the family members as the center of attraction who carries a pattern in their outfit that the rest of the group’s clothing or accessories pull from. Make sure that everyone else’s outfit is simple and in neutral colors.

Do not overdo it

Always remember that the glory is in finer details to make it simple and do not overdo with accessories to the point of them becoming distracting. Sometimes less is more so use props and accessories accordingly. Ask the photographer to help you accessories for the photographs.
