Bold Beautiful Color
I'm so in love with the beautiful wardrobe choices that my friend Emily made for her family's summer portrait session. I admittedly don't feel like the best person to be giving advice about wardrobe choices, as fashion has never been a topic I have felt particularly comfortable with, but I absolutely know what I like for a session when I see it, and this is it.
I'm drawn to colorful photographs and prefer rich, deep colors & jewel tones. I don't mind a good neutral color scheme either, but its colorful choices like the ones below that I really love.
Lucy's dress is definitely the focal point, and when choosing clothing for a family photo session, that's a great way to start...pick one person's outfit (doesn't really matter who) to be the focal point and then build the rest of the choices around that one piece. I'm obsessed with this deep mustard like yellow color, as I think it looks beautiful in most outdoor photos (deep purple is also a fantastic choice). But I do warn clients to be careful with yellow, because if it's too neon, it can create a color cast on the person's face which is really hard to correct in post processing. But Lucy's dress is just right.
And I love how Maggie is wearing a bit more neutral of a top to balance out the bold print of Lucy's dress, but ties in the floral pattern in her shorts. And mom's orange pants are the perfect pop of color and look beautiful with the mustard. It all comes together looking beautifully coordinated, but not to matchy matchy.
