d81_7111Here’s a recent family photo session we did for the Martinez family. This is a perfect example of what to wear. They (Kim) chose grey and crimson (go WSU!) then dark jeans. These colors are easy to find in stores especially this time of year, they look good with the fall colored background and her family is comfortable wearing them. Color keying is a term used in photography. It means matching the color of your background to the client’s outfit. This is done so that your eye is drawn to the subjects face and not distracted by their clothing colors. It’s something to consider when choosing outfits for your family to wear for family photos. Try to avoid white clothes as white is the first thing your eye is drawn to in any photo as it is the brightest “color” (didn’t we learn in art class that white isn’t a color? I’m not sure what it’s called so I’ll put it in quotes). Grey is a nice alternative to white. It’s neutral and subdued. Any color with grey and denim or khaki is a good choice.
Avoid patterned clothing. One outfit change is an option but not necessary. You could layer then take sweaters off to show shirts underneath for a different look without having to go find some place to change clothes.
If you bring a pet please bring someone to hand them off to for the non-pet photos.
We look forward to capturing amazing images of your family! We have a few dates still available but not many. Email me at [email protected] or call 206.790.8995 (email is best) to book a session now!
