CLOTHING & OUTFITS Family & couple photo shoots:
We suggest everyone is dressed in similar styles, colours that compliment one another, and avoiding slogans, logos and images.
You’re welcome to bring more than one outfit. Wearing bright colours helps to stand out against our white background whereas pastels and neutrals compliment our grey wall beautifully, alternatively white tops and blue jeans are always a classic.
Think about your home, these images will be going on your walls! What will match your decor?
Shoes: Be sure to have shoes that match your outfit(s) as your feet will be visible in your portraits. The right pair of shoes can make an outfit, and you’ll want portraits to look complete on the wall. For photo shoots of young children such as grandchildren all together bare feet may look nice!
Please arrive a little earlier if you need to change prior to your photo shoot! If your part of a large family photo shoot arrive ready for your photo shoot!
Props and accessories: Jewellery and a watch always help to pull an outfit together. Scarves and hats can bring personality to your images or why not bring something more personal such as sports/dance wear, an instrument, something related to your hobby, the list goes on.
